Special Needs

Our caring, well-trained volunteers help people with special needs connect with Jesus in a personal way. Dedicated programming provides a safe, fun environment where people with special needs can grow in their faith with Bible teaching, worship and crafts. Others attend regular children’s and student programming with one of our “buddies.”
