Special Needs Ministries


“Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

Welcome to the Special Needs Ministry at CBC! We are so glad you are taking this opportunity to learn more about the ministry. Our mission is to fully serve Jesus Christ by sharing the Gospel specifically with children, young adults and adults who require specialized teaching in order to understand the Word of God at their individual learning level.

“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!”  -Psalm 96:3

Joyful Abilities 2

Why have we, at CBC, decided to implement a Special Needs Ministry?


As stated in the verses above, God commands us to “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation.” Oftentimes, when we hear the term special needs, we immediately begin to think of it in a negative or sorrowful way. When you really think about the term, we are all considered to have a special need in God’s eyes. We are all “special” to God, and we all have a “need” which is to know God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Special Needs Ministry at CBC allows us to fulfill God’s command, by teaching HIS children that we so often see as having special needs in this world!


What do we offer at CBC?

We encourage you to take the opportunity to read about the various groups below and choose one that fits the needs of your child, teen, or adult the most and give it a try!  We are confident that you will not be discouraged or disappointed!  All of the groups below are a great way to  socialize with friends and learn about God while having TONS of FUN!


SPECIAL BUDDIES  is offered weekly on SUNDAY mornings during our ROOTS (children’s program – newborn – 6th grade).  Your child will be included in the ROOTS program and provided with a SPECIAL BUDDY if necessary to help make your child as successful as possible learning the Word of God.


JOYFUL Abilities is offered weekly on SUNDAY mornings during the church service from 9:00-10:30am.  All ages are welcome.  This group is designed so parents and/or caregivers are able to build their            relationship with the Lord, while their child/teen/adult receives specially designed teaching in  order to build their relationship with the Lord!


“A Night Out” Bible Study is offered weekly on TUESDAY evenings from 5:45-7:45pm.  We ask that you use the double doors in the back of the building for drop-off and pick-up.  This group is designed for teens and adults (13 and up).  The goal of this group is to allow teens and adults to have a night out with friends AND for parents to have a night out as well!  The night  entails PRAISE & WORSHIP, SMALL GROUP  BIBLE LESSONS, WHOLE GROUP ACTIVITIES, AND SNACK/FELLOWSHIP. 


FUN Night is offered the last TUESDAY of every month from 5:45-7:45pm.  This group is designed for children/teens/adults.  The group is designed specifically as stated – FUN!  Each month is different (GAME NIGHT, GUYS/GIRLS NIGHT OUT, COOKING, MOVIE NIGHT, ETC.)!  You MUST register online for the events.


PURE LOVE MINISTRY is offered monthly on the last TUESDAY from 5:45-7:45pm to parents and caregivers of those with special needs.  The ministry is designed to support one another in your current walk in life, focus on teaching topics of interest to those attending, and prayer for one another.  Guests speakers are often invited in based on the needs of those in the local community.  Topical information will be discussed for the 1st hour.  A devotional type Bible study will be held the 2nd hour.


CHRIST’S COURAGEOUS SUPERHEROES is offered the last Tuesday of every month from 5:45-7:45pm.  (It is held the same night as our adult FUN Night & PURE Love Ministry meeting).  The program is for children up to age 12.  PLEASE use the back doors for drop-off and pick-up.  The teachers will meet you in the lobby!


We hope that you’ll join us soon!
