A ministry for people with special needs and
their families that loves them unconditionally and engages them in spiritual
growth, by removing hindrances they face, so that they see their worth in God's
eyes and their place in His church. This ministry is an extension of God's
command to love others and an expression of our church's heart to be a unified
body of Christ.
We care about the spiritual growth of all
children. We have an amazing kids program, so we try and integrate children
with special needs whenever possible. When a child needs more one-on-one
attention, we pair that child up with a buddy so they can be included. If
needed, we will even put together a personalized IP to help maximize the
child’s time in their class. When integration isn't the right fit, we offer
individual solutions for the elementary child during our first service. We also
offer a class for teens and adults called Sheep's Gate during our first service.
Not only do we hope to support families
physically, but also spiritually by covering them in regular, confidential
prayer. Personal requests can be made anytime to LEAP@faithchurchfc.org.
This ministry is so important to me, because it
helps people find a place to belong in the church. Time after time, I see God
at work in this ministry proving to me how important this is to His heart. I am
a beneficiary of God’s work in L.E.A.P. and am so blessed as I get the chance
to spend time with so many amazing people, whether it is families being served
or volunteers serving. My hope is to get to know you and your family and help
you plug into the larger church, knowing that each person has gifts and joys to
share with us that make us all stronger. Feel free to call or email me and
discuss your participation!
