SPECIAL NEEDS MINISTRY

We have several classes designed for children whose needs are best met in a small group setting or who need more attention. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who serve faithfully to ensure each child feels safe and loved. Below is a list of the classes we currently offer.
                    

Rockwall Campus

SOAR CLASS

Saturdays  |  6:00 & 7:15 pm
Sundays  |  9:30 am & 11:00 am

This class meets the needs of students who require more specialized care due to developmental delay and/or physical disabilities. We use play to encourage social interaction and teach God’s Word. A picture system is available for students who are non-verbal. The Bible story is shared each week using engaging and interactive videos. There is a weekly craft, game or activity to reinforce the lesson, and an opportunity to use the motor lab.

MOVE AND LEARN

Saturdays  |  6:00 & 7:15 pm
Sundays  |  9:30 am & 11:00 am

This class meets the needs of students K – 5 who need a small classroom setting. The Bible is taught through creative storytelling and/or engaging videos and is great for students who have a short attention span, need time to transition, or need to work on social interaction. Activities focus on application, scripture memory, prayer and Bible story review that all reinforce the lesson. Students in this class have the opportunity to utilize the computer lab.

ADULT CLASS

Sundays  |  9:30 am (Service)
Sundays  |  11:00 am (Life Group)

This class is for older teens and young adults of all ages who have special needs. They meet in their class at 9:15 to go to worship in the auditorium as a group. During the second hour, they meet in their classroom for Bible study. This is a great group of people who LOVE their class and love learning about God.
