“But many who are first will be last, and the last first.” —Mark 10:31
We regard special needs as different abilities rather than disabilities, and we provide a Christ-centered environment with a person-centered emphasis to help individuals and families flourish in their unique abilities, as well as their collective spiritual growth. We seek to transform lives through heart-to-heart relationships and a foundation of trust that will extend to trusting others and trusting in Christ. We are experienced, and therefore well-prepared, to anticipate variables. We remain flexible and understanding that oftentimes the only constant is “consistent inconsistency.”

Bible Fellowship and fun activities are provided during the Saturday Night Worship Service and both Sunday Worship Services. We would love for you to join us!
