Our ministry exists to provide a Gospel-centered, inclusive environment for individuals with special needs. We want to serve these individuals and to partner with their families as they participate in the life of the church.
In most situations, we use the buddy system where the individual is matched with a buddy who will provide individual care in a classroom of peers or in our Special Needs & Disability Ministry area.
Do I need to contact the church prior to attending in order to have a buddy available?
Yes. Our ministry team desires to connect with you to develop a plan that best supports your child and your family.
What does a buddy do?
Buddies act as a support to our ministry participants. The primary goal is to help each child hear and understand the Gospel. Each buddy’s role may differ depending on the individual needs of the child.
Is support available for church-wide events?
Yes. We want everyone to be able to participate in Fellowship events. Please contact our Special Needs & Disability Ministry team to discuss details.
