Special Needs


The purpose of Hope’s One Body Special Needs Ministry, is to reach out to the community of individuals with special needs (children and adults alike) to share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ! This is done by providing these individuals with access to worship, service, fellowship, and discipleship, while also walking alongside all members of their families and care providers. We encourage activities that help everyone experience God’s love, and events that foster a sense of community.
