Better Together Special Needs Ministry exists to strengthen family bonds by bringing all members with special needs and their families the hope, joy, community and love of Christ.
Where to Go: Upon arriving at our church, our greeters will gladly assist you and your family to the check in area for your children and where Kids Ministry is located. All children will be dropped off and picked up at their age appropriate classroom.
Drop-off and Pick-up: We utilize an electronic check-in system to expedite drop-off on a weekly basis and to ensure each child’s safety. At your initial check-in, you will be asked for basic information and any known food allergies or medical conditions. To check your child in each week, you will be asked for your phone number or name, after which you and your child will receive matching alphanumeric tags. If you are needed during a service the three digit number on your tag will appear on the video screen in the adult auditorium indicating that you are needed to return to the classroom. This alphanumeric tag is also required when picking up your child.
What They Do: Better Together Special Needs Ministry offers specialized care for children with Special Needs. Our goal is to meet the needs of each individual. In order to do this, we have a buddy system in place that allows the child to be among peers while learning about Jesus. We have specialized visual schedules so each child has clear expectations. Within the classroom, children are offered engaging and entertaining curriculum modified and tailored to that individual. We follow the same curriculum all FRCC Kids follow. Our trained serve team leaders utilize videos, music, skits, games, and much more to help children understand and remember that week’s story. We strongly believe that no matter the severity of need, each child can learn about God’s love.
Better Together Special Needs Ministry knows that having a child or family member with special needs does not end on Sunday mornings, therefore, we want to provide resources, marriage support, IEP trainings, sibling support, and a sense of community throughout the week. Our focus is for the entire family unit. We have many resources for all levels of need available to anyone and everyone.
