Special Needs

 Our mission statement is "Worshiping Christ, Welcoming All," and as a church, we are committed to making ALL people feel welcome. God has given each of us different gifts and abilities, and this is no less true for individuals with disabilities! For this reason, we are committed to making all people and children with disabilities feel accepted, comfortable and loved in our church - and our children's ministries are no exception. We want all children of all abilities to be involved and to participate as much as they wish!  For information on our Accessibility Inclusion Ministry click HERE

 SENSORY BAGS

Sensory Bags are available for check-out during each worship services for individuals who might benefit from them.  Each bag contains several sensory items, as well as headphones and a weighted lap pad.  Please see an usher at the back of the sanctuary for more information..

ONE-TO-ONE PROGRAM

 
We understand that your child and his/her unique abilities may need direct support to participate in our children's programs. Our One-to-One Program provides this support by endeavoring to pairing up a Safe Sanctuary-trained member of our church with your child to meet his/her specific needs.   Many of these individuals have extensive experience in supporting children with special needs, and they sometimes work in a team format so someone is always available for support.
 
We will do our best to find your child "buddy" that will be committed to supporting your child as much as possible as they participate in our programs. 
 
If you believe your child may benefit direct support through our One-To-One Program, please contact Linda Klepaczyk, Director of our Children & Family Ministry to set up a meeting. Keep in mind, this process may take some time, as we want to set up your child with someone who will make him/her (and you!) comfortable.   We are so excited to meet your child and learn alongside them as they grow in faith!
 
Workout Buddy - Someone available to come along side a child to help them get the most out of our Cross Training workshops during the Sunday School hour.
 
Worship Partner - Someone available to sit with a child and their family during the worship service, and then accompany the child to W.O.W. or Godly Play.

Our Childcare/Nursery Offerings

We  offer childcare during Sunday worship services and the Sunday School hour from 10:10-11:10 am. Child care is available for infants up to the age of 3. The nursery is located in rooms J  in the education wing.

Childcare can be arranged for special events or services in the life of our church.  There is usually a sign-up for events with a spot for childcare needs at the Opportunity Wall in the narthex.
