Our special needs volunteers are an invaluable asset to our ministry. We are so grateful for their time and commitment to the ministry and for sharing the love of Jesus with our preschool through adult's with disabilities.

  • What types of serving opportunities are there as a Special Needs Volunteer?

    There are many ways you can serve in the Special Needs Ministry: 

    • Sunday Mornings
      • You can serve as a one-to-one buddy. You may go with the individual to their Sunday School classroom or Marketplace. You may stay in a sensory room in the Special Needs hallway. It all depends on the needs of the indivudal for which you are paired.
      • You may choose to serve in the Student and Adult teaching classroom. In this classroom you may support one individual or the classroom as a whole. During this time a lesson is taught using Special Needs curriculum. Do not worry everything is planned for you! 
    • Wednesday Nights
      • ​You can serve an individual with disabilities in their peer group or in the sensory rooms based on the students needs.
         
    • rEcess
      • Friday nights once a month, a respite night is offered to families and caregivers of children with special needs and their siblings, ages 3-14-years old. Parents/Caregivers drop-off their child(ren) from 600pm to 9pm. During that time the children play games, watch movies, and have a fantastic time!
         
    • Camps/Retreats/Mission Trips
      • You can also go on camps, retreats and mission trips with individuals with special needs and help them access and engage in the activities! FUN!!!
