Loving Hands

Special Needs Ministry

Our Special Needs ministry, Loving HANDS​​ ​is a respite service provided twice a month for 3 hours for families who have children with special physical, intellectual, behavioral or emotional needs. Parents enjoy a night off and we get a chance to love on your child and share with them how amazing they are and how much they are loved – by God and by us!

About Loving Hands

Loving HANDS Ministry

Loving HANDS provides a fun, safe evening out for families with children that have special physical, intellectual, behavioral or emotional needs and their siblings. At Loving HANDS, kids of all ages enjoy an evening of fun, including a bounce house, ball pit, Wii and PS4 stations and snack. Each child is paired up with a trained volunteer for the evening.

Loving HANDS Prime provides respite for families who have children ages 18 and up who have physical or intellectual special needs. This program is perfect for the individual who would enjoy a more adult-like mature atmosphere. The evening includes music, dancing, free time and fellowship plus group activities such as games, karaoke, skits, music lessons, crafts, baking, etc.

Both events are held monthly while parents and caregivers get a well deserved break. All special dietary concerns are accommodated including gluten, casein and artificial dyes.

Please pre-register for each date following the buttons below. No walk-ins please.
