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.

The mission of the Side by Side ministry at First Presbyterian Church aims to come alongside people with special needs and their families as they navigate the unique realities to which they have been called in order that they might….

  • 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 would love to touch base with you to understand how we might support you best.  Please contact Spring Rawlings by email, here.
