Special Needs | Open Arms

The Open Arms Ministry supports families and individuals with special needs into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is to create an accepting church environment for families impacted by special needs or disabilities. We want to better understand the challenges that families with special needs have and develop a plan that will facilitate a more inclusive and accommodating environment for them within our church.


During our weekend service times, we provide care for children with special needs. Our goal is to support children with special needs in an age-appropriate classroom with the right level of assistance. We actively engage parents in the process of providing for their child.
