About

Due to staffing requirements for special needs ministry, we ask new families to register in advance before visiting. Contact Renee Pecek (440.708.2113) to receive an information packet. 

Faithful Friends (Older Youth & Young Adults)
Sundays at 9:45-11:00am, Rm A117

Our Faithful Friends class consists of young adults with developmental disabilities and affords them a safe, secure environment for a time of fellowship and encouragement in God's Word by caring and committed caregivers. This group meets weekly on Sunday mornings from September-June where they learn about God through teaching, music, crafts, and drama. Please note: some Sundays are off, due to holidays.

Faithful Friends, Jr. (Ages 5-15)
Sundays at  9:45am & 11:15am, Rm A115

For children with disabilities ages 5-15, this class is designed specifically to give them the opportunity to hear God’s Word and to provide a support group for families with children who have special needs.  We desire that parents would be able to attend worship, knowing that their children are cared for and shown the love of Jesus through Bible stories, music, playtime, and individual/small group interaction. We often need helpers to join our team as we seek to provide 1:1 care for each child in our class. 

Communion Care
Sundays when Communion is offered, 6:00pm, Rm A115

We desire that parents would be able to attend the Communion service while their children and youth with special needs are cared for by our team. Communion services are typically held on the first Sunday evening of each month, and we seek to provide 1:1 care for each child (September-June).
