BUDDY MINISTRY

JOY 215
The Buddy Ministry seeks to provide individualized care in a safe and compassionate environment during normal worship services for children with special needs, both physical and mental, and their families. Our ministry is equipped to minister to children ages preschool through elementary.

FIRST STEP

JOY 209 + 213
Meets the first Sunday of the month.
The First Steps Class is designed to partner with parents as they walk their children through the most important decision their child will ever make: salvation. We believe it is our responsibility, as the church, to equip parents to be the chief disciple-makers in their own home, and preparing and helping them walk this time in the life of their child is one of the best ways to do it.
