SPECIAL FRIENDS

Special Friends is our ministry for families of children and teens with special needs. 

Special Friends Buddies
(Infant-5th grade)

We provide one-on-one support in an inclusion setting for children with special needs for infants through fifth graders who could use extra assistance to participate in children’s ministry programming. These specially trained buddies provide support, friendship, and love to the children so that they feel welcomed, safe, and included.

Special Friends Class
(6th-12th grade)

The Special Friends class provides engaging and developmentally appropriate Bible teaching to preteens and teens with cognitive disabilities who may struggle to understand content in the typical Sunday School setting. Students are also given the opportunity to learn and socialize with typical peers who volunteer in the class each Sunday.

Sensory Break Room

This space provides a quiet place for students with sensory issues to take a break when their normal environment becomes overstimulating. Students are accompanied by their adult or teen buddy and engage in quiet sensory activities of their choice. 

Plan Your Visit

If you're a family with a child or student with special needs, you can contact us prior to your visit. We want to be ready for your son or daughter.
