Special Needs

Setup a Meeting

We believe Christ has invited every one of us to His table and His mission. And He has given each of us gifts and dependencies that help bring the Good News into this world. Those of us who have special needs are not only included, but essential to this mission. So, our church is committed to making space at the table and in the field for our brothers and sisters with special needs.

Partnering

We are committed to partnering with every family in order to include all individuals with special needs by journeying with each individual to create the support and empowerment you individually need to be included at Christ’s table and mission.

Inclusion

We are committed to pursuing an inclusion model where each adult or child is in their peer group instead of separated into a separate “table” for those of us with special needs.

Safety

Because we are aware of the vulnerability that can come from having a child with special needs, we are committed to providing a safe environment for every child.
