We at Prince Avenue recognize the tremendous need in our community for ministry to those with special needs, both physical and mental, and their families. Our Special Needs Ministry seeks to provide individualized care in a safe and compassionate environment during our worship service and Sunday school, at this point, we are equipped to minister to children ages preschool through elementary. Each student is paired with a trained volunteer or “buddy” to assist them whether they are with their peers in a typical classroom or in a separate class designed specifically for Special Needs. It is our prayer that we will meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of your family.
Before your first visit, if possible, please contact our family ministry office to answer a few key questions about your child and his or her needs. This will help us as we prepare for your precious family.
For your first visit, please come to the second floor, elementary check-in desk. It will be our goal to take care of your child for the entire service, however, we may ask that you stay with your child during the entire time if your child is having a hard time adjusting to the new environment. This allows you the opportunity to get an in-depth look at the ministry and it gives us the chance to get information from you and answer any questions you may have. If you decide to enroll your child in the Buddy Ministry, we would ask that you arrange for a student placement interview by calling the Family Ministry office at 678-753-3116.
