Special Blessings

The Special Blessings ministry serves children, teens, and adults with special needs, and the families that care for them. We put love into action by making accommodations to integrate these saints into our body of believers and thus reminding them that they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Dear children, don’t just talk about love. Put your love into action. Then it will truly be love.
~ I John 3:18
