Our vision is not so much to go out and recruit families who have children with special needs, so that they can attend our church. Our primary goal is to minister to the families who already want to be a part of Grace Church. It is our joy to come alongside these families, so that they can be free to worship and free to serve, even to be on campus for 2 services.
A more detailed picture regarding our vision is in the works, and we are trying to determine how we'll communicate it (probably both as a paper and a series of blog posts). We absolutely do not have all the answers; instead we are learning year by year. We are moving into uncharted territory for us, not just with the sheer numbers of children with special needs, but also with the fact that we have more and more children who are in their pre-teen and teen years.
For now, let us know if you have questions or thoughts. Also, we are always looking for committed and loving volunteers who can serve as shadows. If you or someone you know is interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
