Special Needs Ministry

Special Needs Ministry

SERVING CHILDREN WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS 

We believe in God's value for every human life, and we believe that Jesus desires a personal relationship with every person, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.  Our Early Childhood, Children's and Student Ministries are committed to helping ensure a safe, welcoming environment that focuses on one mission: "To lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ." Our desire is to:

  1. Make sure every child can enjoy church.
  2. Make sure that parents/guardians can fully participate in their own worship experience and receive their own spiritual nourishment.
  3. Make sure serving is a pleasure for our cherished volunteer "buddies" and that they feel fully supported while serving alongside our children with special needs.

If you have a child with additional needs and would like to connect with us, or if you have a heart for serving in this ministry,  please contact Sharon Marinier, Children's Coordinator/ smarinier@cc-ob.org / 630-654-3287.
