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 youth and young adults with developmental disabilities.  It affords them a safe, secure environment for a time of fellowship and encouragement in God's Word by caring and committed caregivers and teach in this area. This group meets weekly on Sunday morning where they learn about God through teaching, music, crafts, and drama.

Faithful Friends, Jr. (Ages 4-14)
Sundays at 11:00am-12:15am, Rm A115

For children with disabilities ages 4-14 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.

Faithful Friends, Jr. Parents' Night Out (Ages 4-14)
One Friday per month

Parents' Night Out is an evening of childcare offered to parents of special needs children one Friday night a month from 6-9pm. Parents new to PNO can get an information/registration packet from Renee at 440.708.2113 or rpecek@parksidechurch.com

Returning parents need to R.S.V.P. with Troy & Danelle Bennington at least 1 week in advance of the scheduled date so we can plan for adequate staffing.
