  Add to Your Calendar

Who We Are

This group is intended for a variety of different people including:

  • parents of a child with special needs
  • adults affected by disability themselves
  • adult siblings of a person with special needs
  • professionals in a related field, such as:
    • medical professional
    • social worker
    • speech, occupational, or physical therapist
    • special education teachers and aides, counselors, etc.,
  • anyone who is interested in supporting families or being a resource
  • anyone who may be interested in supporting and ministering in the emerging disability ministry at Calvary Memorial Church (perhaps you are exploring the idea of becoming a buddy for a child with special needs and want to come and learn more)

 

What we do

This is a group intended to engage God as we live together and encourage one another in a life that is in some way touched by special needs.

In a relaxed atmosphere, we will together unpack this life and God’s role in it by celebrating victories and answers to prayer, sharing ways we see God working, looking for wisdom, bearing each other’s burdens, and encouraging one another.

The structure is conversation and prayer. Some months we may invite guests to speak in some area of expertise that may be a resource for us. We also want to hear from individuals and/or families on ways they can better be served in the life of the church and be able to access it's ministries with as little of restriction as possible.

Childcare is available through the regular 10:45 AM Children's ministry at Calvary. If you have a child with special needs, please complete this form with number of children, their ages and let us know of any specific special needs so we can work ahead of time to try to make accommodations to help serve your family on Sunday morning.
