Buddy Program

for children with special needs

Volunteers serve as buddies to children with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. They are paired up with these children on a Sunday morning during church. Staff members train and equip volunteers base on each child’s individual needs. Both the child’s and adults personality and characteristics are taken into consideration when the pairing is scheduled. We want this to be a life giving experience for both the child and the volunteer.

Youth Ministry

Our leaders are passionate about pointing students to Christ and empowering them to embrace an identity rooted in Him. We create a safe and fun environment for students to learn, share, and discuss what God is doing in their lives, as well as, build solid relationships with one another through fellowship.
