Missions

Special Friends

Special Friends ministers to people (18 and older) with special learning needs through Bible Study and other programs. We teach them that they, too, have a purpose in life through God. We lead them in worship and having a personal relationship with Jesus. We teach them that daily prayer is an important part of life. Many of our members don’t have a family, and we teach them that they have brothers and sisters in Christ. We let them know that we’re here for hugs and encouragement.

We have three visions for this ministry.

  • Community outreach involvement in the form of a “caregiver” day out program. This would give caregivers a time to recharge, and the special needs person would have an outlet for socialization or creativity.
  • Circle S Ranch, which is a live-in facility for special-needs persons to go to when their caregiver is no longer able to care for them. This is a home that provides Christian-based living with workshops and activities for the residents.
  • Christian support for the family through interaction with other parents, community and church.
