Friends Ministry

People of all abilities matter to God! Friends provides support for children with special needs in Sunday morning class rooms, during special events, and provides respite care the first Friday of every month. Friends equips children with needed support, enabling them to be full participants and contributors. This ministry also provides an opportunity for caring individuals to use and develop their spiritual gifts, serving in a ministry that has immediate and positive impact.

Sunday mornings

Self-contained classroom

Friends Ministry serves children whose needs cannot be met in a traditional classroom setting, providing a safe, nurturing environment as children are guided in a Bible lesson and activities.

Traditional classroom

Friends Ministry facilitates the inclusion of a special needs student in a traditional classroom setting. Students are provided with one-on-one assistance enabling them to learn about Jesus and interact with other children.

Friends on Fridays

On the first Friday of the month from 6–9 PM, Friends offers a fun and safe evening of activity and extra special care, giving parents and caregivers an evening away to rejuvenate and strengthen their relationships. Special needs children and their siblings participate in an evening filled with games, crafts and movies.

First Friday of the month / October 5–April 5 / 6–9 PM / G160
*exceptions are Sept 14 and Jan 11
