Special Needs Ministry

Our Bent Tree Special Needs Ministry believes that God made each individual in His image and it is our privilege to walk alongside these valuable members of our church family.

Our mission is to provide a safe, positive, welcoming environment for individuals with special needs (physical, intellectual, mental, behavioral, or any combination).

Our Servant Leaders, called Buddies, are the hands and heart of Jesus while they pair up with Friends (individuals with special needs) in the mainstream environment with their peers or the special needs classrooms.

Worship time, bible stories, crafts, and fun are all a part of the Sunday morning program so each individual can know God and learn about the love of Jesus.

Meet the Cole family.

Our Special Needs friends and their buddies share a song on stage to let us know that each of us is a child of God.

For more information, fill out this form to contact our Special Needs Coordinator, Carol Slater. She will connect with you and set up a time to speak with you about your child and the level of care he/she needs.
