Special Needs Ministry

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
— Matthew 19:14

Mission Statement

  • To be a community where children, youth, and adults with disabilities and their families are welcomed and included as full participants in the life of the church.

  • To help children and youth with special needs know, love, and share in the Lord.

Our staff and volunteers strive to work closely with our children and youth ministries to provide a welcoming community for all. Age-graded Bible Study classes and the “Sonshine Room” (children) and "Youth Room" are available when a quiet, less stimulating environment is needed, but students and children are integrated with everyone as much as possible. Our youth ministry works to include all students in our small group ministry during the school year as students meet in homes with small group leaders on Sunday evenings.

Accessibility: Marked parking spaces are available on Spring Street directly in front of our Welcome Center. Our Welcome Center provides access to our sanctuary via a ramp, and our facilities also include elevator access and handicap accessible restrooms on the first floor.

Restrooms: Handicap accessible restrooms are located across from the Nursery Suite on the 1st floor and on the 2nd floor in the CLC area near the Arts and Crafts Room.
