In order to provide the best experience for those with special needs, we offer both inclusion-style and self-contained classrooms. We work with each family to find the most appropriate place to support the individual with special needs in their faith journey, allowing parents to worship with the church body. We also have a sensory room for those who could benefit from a short break.
In our inclusion-style classrooms, we offer a buddy to help each child engage within the typical classroom setting.
In our self-contained classrooms, our teachers use techniques and interventions specifically designed for those with special needs, while buddies help them participate in the Bible lesson and activities.
Self-contained class for children during the 9:45 am service, and for all ages during the 11:!5 am service.
Self-contained class for teens and adults to engage in Bible lessons through songs, activities, and learning centers, Sunday mornings, 9:45 am hour only.
Early Childhood, Elementary, and Student Ministries participants with special needs are assisted by a volunteer buddy in typical classroom settings. Available during the 9:45 am service only.
