We are excited to offer the programs that are specific to our Special Needs Ministry. Heidi will be partnering with our Family Ministry Team on some hyper-inclusive programs and events for ALL families. As we move through the uncertainties of Covid, our team is working hard to create continuity and unique ways to stay connected. Read through the Family Ministries events (pages 10-13) and see where you can plug in. Our Wednesday programming is going to be like nothing we have done before and truly for everyone. This partnership includes new events that might be just perfect for your family, so be sure to take a look at Family Ministry Special Events this Fall.
