For Special Needs

 Mission for this ministry

We believe that everyone is a masterpiece in God’s eyes. (Ephesians 2:10) That is why we call this ministry “Masterpiece Ministry”. Our mission for this ministry is to help adults, students and children with special needs to be equipped with the knowledge and tools to connect with God in a personal way.

Respite Nights

At Respite Night, parents drop off their child(ren) with special needs (any age) along with siblings through age 13, while background-checked volunteers care for them. We offer a variety of activities for the kids to enjoy. Our volunteers feel so blessed to serve parents in this way and have a great time laughing, playing and interacting with these wonderful kids! Respite Nights are offered four times per year.

Next Respite Night will be April 24, 2020. Registration will be available online for this event starting in March 2020. Important: You must register your child(ren) through this link for each Respite Night they attend.
