CHOSEN

SPECIAL NEEDS MINISTRY

We offer a full circle of opportunity to those with special needs—the opportunity to be evangelized, to be discipled, to learn about their spiritual gifts and calling and to operate in those gifts by serving others.

We welcome individuals with specials needs and their families with the love of Jesus so that every person, regardless of their ability or challenges, would feel embraced by the Body of Christ and celebrated for the unique person God created them to be.

Colorado Community Church is launching a sensory classroom in February for children, youth and adults who get overstimulated and overwhelmed by the typical church service and classroom experience. We will be offering the class first during our Thursday night program and then roll it out during our Saturday 5:00pm service.

Students will be partnered with a screened, trained volunteer so they can receive one-on-one support. Check back for more exact dates.

Saturdays & Sundays

  • We offer children with special needs a supportive, inclusive classroom environment with 1-to-1 and small group volunteer support.
  • Screened, trained volunteer “Buddies” are matched with children with special needs so that they can be fully integrated into classroom teaching and activities.
  • Curriculum is adapted as needed for each child.
  • At this time we do not offer on-site Buddies for families who visit, but parents are welcome to attend our weekend Children’s Church classrooms with their child(ren) while a Buddy-match is determined.

We truly apologize for the inconvenience!
This is custom text. Checking to see how it looks when something goes wrong and custom text is necessary. This is oh, so fun stuff! Yay! Paco is so cool. No really, he is. At least that's what he tells himself (shhh, don't tell him he said so to himself, he'd get really angry at himself if he knew he was talking to himself about himself)...
