Special Needs Ministry
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for children with special needs and their families. Our desire is to encourage families in their relationship with the Lord as we partner together to guide our children with special needs to honor God by living like Jesus.
We will do this through worship, learning about Him, and providing opportunities to display every child’s unique spiritual gifts within the church body.
Please see below to learn more about our Special Needs Ministry at Emmanuel Faith, how you can enroll your child, or volunteer in this ministry area.

If you're a parent of a child with special needs, come find community at our Special Needs Ministry parent support group. Meet other parents in similar life situations, discover new resources, share questions and concerns in a safe place, and be encouraged your journey. Meetings will be held the 4th Wednesday of each month through the school year. Childcare is available through our regular Wednesday night programs. Veteran special needs parents, Eric & Christen Freund, will lead the group. Contact Krissy for more details.
Ways to Volunteer in Special Needs Ministry
Do you have a heart for children with special needs? Come join us as a special needs buddy!
Buddies work one-on-one with a child in their Sunday School class. No prior experience needed, training is provided. Being a Buddy is a tremendous blessing to families with special needs children and the blessing is returned to the Buddy exponentially in spending time with these amazing kiddos!
There are opportunities to work every other weekend with a child, be a helper in the special needs classroom, or be on a substitute list. You can also help simply by spreading the word about the special needs ministry at EFCC.
If you wish to be involved in the Faith Kids programs, please also download and fill out a Faith Kids Worker Application Form.
