Since we believe everyone is a masterpiece in God's eyes (Ephesians 2:10), our special needs outreach is called Masterpiece Ministry. Our mission is to equip adults, students and children with special needs with the knowledge and tools to connect with God in a personal way.
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.
Update: Respite Nights are temporarily on hold as our community responds to the coronavirus. We hope to see you again soon!
