Won't you consider being a part of this wonderful movement to support our community's special needs population? The biggest need is 1-on-1 volunteers, but help is needed in other areas, such as set up and clean up, and help in activity rooms (music room, game room, craft room, gym), and prayer partners. You don't need to commit to helping every month - you can come as you are able.

- Vacation Bible School
- Craft Preparation
- Prayer Partners
- Administrative Tasks
- Buddies for Buddy Break or weekly Sunday School or Faith Ink classes
