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. We help build community for your child by providing them with a trained buddy to support them in our typical kid’s environments equal to your child’s abilities. We also provide a separate environment specifically for children with special needs where they can engage and learn about God in a safe and fun space.
Where to Go: Upon arriving at our church, our parking team can direct you to our special needs parking by the entrance. Indicate your interest in the special needs parking by turning on your flashers. Once in the building, our greeters will gladly assist you and your family to the check in area for your children. Once checked in, you will be shown to your child’s community group or our Special Needs Room. This is where your child can be dropped off and picked up each week.
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. 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 alphanumeric 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 tag is also required when picking up your child. On your first visit, we will also ask for some basic information and talk with our leader so that we best know how to care for your family.
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 special needs room in a place that creates a safe, quiet environment for each child to learn about Jesus. We have visual individualized education plans so each child has clear expectations. Within the environment, children are offered an engaging and entertaining curriculum modified and tailored to their unique needs. Our trained Dream Team leaders utilize videos, music, games, and much more to help children understand and experience that week’s story. We strongly believe that no matter the level 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.
If your family is ready to check out Front Range and our Special Needs Ministry, please complete the form below. This will help us to be prepared for you and your family before you arrive on Sunday morning. These questions are asked for the benefit of your child so that we may provide the best experience and safest environment for everyone involved. Our church and Front Range Kids respect your family’s right to privacy.
