Special Needs Ministry

First Free delights in welcoming children and adults with special needs into the life of the church. We recognize those with special needs require individual attention and support to help them engage in the ministries we offer.

Children and adults with special needs have opportunities to take part in church life:

  • We encourage participation in Sunday morning classes. We have special needs classes for kids and adults tailored to students' needs and learning skills, or we can match kids with an adult helper for attending class with their peers.
  • Adults can get to know others in the church by serving as ushers and greeters on Sunday mornings. 
  • Kids and students are welcome to take part in our Wednesday night ministries with the assistance of an adult helper if needed.
  • We organize regular service projects where they can work together and serve within their gifts and abilities.

We also desire to love and support the entire family as they face the unique challenges of raising children with special needs. We currently have a Bible study for mothers of children with special needs that meets twice each month. 

Please contact our Special Needs Director Evanelle Olinger to learn how we can come alongside you in meeting the needs of your family and welcome you to First Free!
