Since we believe everyone is a masterpiece in God's eyes (Ephesians 2:10), our special needs group is called Masterpiece Ministry. Our mission is to equip adults, students, and kids with special needs with the knowledge and tools to connect with God in a personal way.
Update: Respite Nights and in-person Sunday experiences are temporarily on hold as our community responds to the coronavirus. We hope to see you again soon!
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.
Hand-in-Hand is a place where adults of any age with special needs can come together to grow relationships, experience an interactive Bible lesson, and share prayer requests. Volunteers serve as mentors during class time. Not currently meeting in person. Watch interactive videos on YouTube
The Bridge Class provides a friendly environment where teens and young adults can feel accepted and encouraged while learning about God's love for them. Not currently meeting in person.
The Buddy Program pairs children (Pre-K-5th grade) and youth (6th-12th grade) with trained helpers who make sure their needs are met in the regular classroom on Sunday mornings.
