Limitless Special Needs Ministry

 
 
 
My name is Keisha Martinez, and I came on staff in 2018 in conjunction with our children’s ministry to oversee our special needs kids programs for ages 0– 1st grade in Nursery and 2 year olds through 2nd grade in AWANA.
 
If you would like to become a part of this amazing team, please see the volunteer application link below.
 
Although our disabilities sometimes leave us limited; through Christ we are LIMITLESS!!!
 
• Goal: To teach children with special needs about the love of Jesus Christ. To teach them that there is a God out there that loves them unconditionally and longs to have a relationship with each and every one of us despite our differences.
 
• “Buddy” system: We have the opportunity to match your child with a well-trained one-on-one “Buddy” that will shadow your child throughout their time here at church providing assistance when needed as well as promoting independence. Buddies are only currently available for children aged birth up to 2nd grade with diagnosed special needs.
 
• Sensory Room: Our sensory room is designed to provide your child with a safe, comfortable, quiet, soothing, and calming place to recover from overstimulation as well as a space for those sensory seekers to explore their senses through safe sensory play. Our sensory room will be equipped with a trained volunteer to help accommodate all needs.
 
• Special Needs Classroom: We are in the process of developing a classroom just for children with special needs who are unable to handle integration or those who do not meet our age acquirements for children’s church (birth up to 2nd grade). Here in our Special Needs Classroom children will have the opportunity to learn about Jesus through prayer, story time, bible time, music, sensory play, and transition time.
