Special Needs

Every child should have the opportunity to learn all about Jesus in a safe and loving environment. Our special needs ministry is designed to accommodate children who have a challenging time learning in a standard classroom environment. Our specially trained Ministry Partners will teach a Bible story each week, complete with application points and discussion time. They are equipped to work with children ranging from mild Sensory Processing Disorder to Asperger's and Autism.  Many of our volunteers have specialized degrees and/or careers in education, child development and other applicable fields.

  • Sensory Friendly Room: Sundays at 11AM
    • The goal of this ministry is to create a safe, accepting environment for children with special needs, so children and families feel they are welcome in church regardless their situation or ability.
