The SHINE Special Needs Ministry exists to help kids, teens, and adults with special needs love God, grow together, and reach the world. We are also here to provide support, encouragement, and fellowship to families of those with special needs.
We believe that those with special needs are called by God to glorify Him with the light that He gives them. "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)
We also believe that Jesus commands that those with special needs be welcomed by the people of God to take part in His Kingdom. "Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame...go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full." (Luke 14:21-23)
