loving hands ministry to children with special needs

Jesus said, “Let the  children come to me for they shall inherit the kingdom of heaven”. Our Loving HANDS Ministry offers Hope, Acceptance, iNclusion, Dignity, and Support for all families of young adults, youth, and children with special needs.

Our goal is to ensure each child feels loved and accepted. We will provide a buddy for any children that may need a little extra help staying focused during the activity they are participating in at church. In doing so this also allows the  rest of the family the opportunity to  participate in any activities they may be interested as well.  The family does not have to be members of the church to participate and we offer this service free of charge.

We have many wonderful, loving volunteers that are ready and willing to share God’s love with your children.

Loving HANDS Respite

We would love to give parents with special needs kids some much deserved time to themselves. One Saturday night a month we offer a safe, fun and free place for you to bring your special needs children (1 – 16 years) and their siblings (up to age 10). We assign 2 volunteers to each child and we have a registered nurse at each respite.  All adult volunteers have gone through Ministry Safe training and have had background checks.
