The Special Blessing 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

September 11–December 11 | 9:30–10:45 a.m.

The Special Blessings Sunday School class is designed for people of all ages with special needs. This fall, we’ll use the interactive Bible study, “SeeJesus Bethesda Series, Unit 4: FAITH” to explore how Jesus acts in faith towards his Father. These are memorable lessons to help students understand Jesus’ teachings about faith and how each of us can rely on him each day. During our Sunday school hour, participants also have Chime Choir practice. We will play at the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, Dec. 18. No Sunday School Class: November 27, December 25, January 1.

Sunday Fellowship Brunch

We invite our families to join us for occasional fellowship brunches during the Sunday School hour in our regular classroom. Our next potluck brunch is Sunday, October 23. Future dates TBA.

Parent Groups (Online)

Our Moms and Dads groups meet online to provide mutual support, prayer, and encouragement for moms of any age children who have special needs. The groups are now reading and discussing “Parenting and Disabilities: Abiding in God’s Presence” by Stephanie O. Hubach. All are welcome – including newcomers!

  • Moms’ Group | Sept. 16, Oct. 14, Nov. 18, Dec. 16 | 7:30–9:00 p.m.
  • Dads’ Group | Second Saturday of each month | Oct. 8, Nov. 12, Dec. 10 | 7:00–8:30 p.m.

Young Adults Fellowship (Online)

Tuesdays, Oct. 18, Nov. 15, Dec. 13 | 5:00–6:00 p.m.
This virtual fellowship provides a great opportunity for young men and women (ages 21+) to gather and build friendships through fun conversation, music, and games.

Service Projects

Our Special Blessings families gather to participate in a variety of service projects each year. Our next service project is volunteering at the Drive-Through Food Drive & Collection on Saturday, November 12. Future dates TBA.
