The Special Blessings ministry serves people with special needs from toddlers to adults and their families. Our goal is to welcome all members of Christ’s church with open arms, and to offer opportunities for learning, fellowship, and service that suit their gifts and abilities.

Sunday School

January 15–May 14 | 9:30–10:45 a.m.

The Special Blessings Sunday School class is currently using the interactive “SeeJesus Bethesda” Bible study series. With Unit 5: The Passion”, we discuss how Jesus demonstrated his love for us on his journey to the cross, and how that impacts our faith and daily lives. During our Sunday School hour, participants also have Chime Choir practice. No Sunday School Class April 9.

Sunday Fellowship Brunch

We invite our families to join us for occasional fellowship brunches during the Sunday School hour in our regular classroom. Future dates TBA.
