Mission
Access Ministry supports and encourages individuals with special needs to recognize they are known, valued and loved by God and by us.

In Access, we provide opportunities for the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of individuals with special needs, while partnering with parents and caregivers to be the spiritual leaders in their homes. Our goal is to extend Christ’s love by:
  • Teaching individuals with special needs about Jesus
  • Providing opportunities for individuals with special needs and families to be fully integrated in the church body
  • Transforming community together with individuals and families impacted by special needs
Program Description
Access Ministry Programming

Access Adult Class Sundays at 4:30 pm - The Access Adult Class is for adults with special needs (ages 16+). The class meets upstairs in Atrium A. Class begins with worship in the balcony of the sanctuary, followed by a small group bible study and fellowship time. The class provides an opportunity for adults with special needs to grow their relationship with Christ, participate in service projects, intercede for one another and transform community as the body of Christ. Participants in the Access Adult Class must have a completed info sheet on file.

Access Children’s Class Sundays at 9:15a.m. - The Access Children’s class meets in the Access classroom located in kidustrial park. Class begins with worship in the Elementary large group area with peers, followed by a Bible lesson in the Access classroom. The curriculum is adapted for children with special needs, focusing on visual supports, sensory integrated activities and structured routines. The class provides children with special needs the opportunity to learn that they are known, loved and valued by God and by us.

Access Ministry’s Special Events - Access Ministry’s special events provide parents with the opportunity to enjoy a night out (either at the dinner that we host or on your own). Volunteers provide a safe, loving and fun evening for adults and children with special needs and siblings. We have two annual events, our Fall Festival and Spring Carnival. Registration is required for both events. Like us on Facebook for updates on event dates and times.
