Special Needs Ministry

     

A Community of Faith and Friendship

We exist as a place where people with special needs and their families are welcomed and included as full participants in the life of the church.

Our mission is to introduce people to Jesus and lead people into a growing relationship with God and to provide opportunities for them to experience God’s love through community.

Let’s stay connected! Find ways to stay in touch below.
