Side by Side
A Ministry for People with Special Needs
We exist to serve children and adults with special needs so that they might know the love of Christ, experience His grace, and be enfolded into His Church.
- better and more deeply know the love of Christ
- come under the means of grace
- experience the fellowship of the church
- feel welcomed and enfolded into the Body of Christ
- be supported by a specific team of believers who serve them in a practical, spiritual and an emotional manner
How can we serve you?
If you have a family member with special needs and are hoping to join us this Sunday, our Side by Side Ministry Director, Calleene Newberry, would love to touch base with you to understand how we might support you best. Please contact Calleene by email, here.
It takes a village to raise any child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This ministry would not be possible without the help of many hands. Our volunteer teams are set up as follows:
Children’s Ministry Support Team
Our team of volunteers are specifically trained on how to best support and engage each child in each unique ministry setting. Please fill out a SUPPORT FORM so that we can know how to best engage your loved one. We have a SPECIAL BLESSINGS ROOM that is equipped with unique tools to serve those with more severe disabilities in engaging and safe ways.
Family Support Team
Families with people with special needs face unique realities that can make even the routine tasks a challenge. Families are assigned a group of volunteers who support them in practical ways through things like bringing meals regularly and babysitting.
Prayer Support Team
Volunteers have specific families whom they pray for regularly.
