Wednesdays from September - April

From fall through spring, children with special needs can participate in Wednesday evening classes that deliver a Biblical message while helping kids develop hobbies, skills, and friendships. Each child is paired with a Buddy, who provides one-on-one care and attention throughout the evening.

Respites

South Hills Campus
Approximately once per Month

Our respites give parents and caregivers of children with special needs a few hours off, while our staff and volunteers have a great time with the kids! Children and their siblings are invited for playtime, gym time, crafts, Bible stories, snacks, and the main attraction - a bounce house.

Check-In for Special Needs Families

South Hills Campus
Special Needs Entrance
Parking Lot 6 or 7, Door 9

The Special Needs Ministry uses a secure check-in system at our own separate entrance. This system matches children with their parents or caregivers to ensure safe and smooth drop-off and pick-up. It also provides ample space to help children with the transition into our area.
