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.

While we have volunteers in our ministry who work in the field of special needs, it is important to know that we are not therapists and we do not do therapy. We are also not here to counsel or advise parents on their children. We are here simply to provide a welcoming place for every individual to come and feel embraced as a vital part of the body of Christ.

Launching in September 2019, Colorado Community Church will offer a Multi-Sensory Classroom for children ages 4 – 5th grade who have cognitive, behavioral & emotional needs, as well as those who have experienced trauma.

Screened, trained volunteer teachers & aides will provide an adapted lesson & support in this center-based environment. Quiet corners will be available for those who need to take a break, and sensory centers will be set up for students to self-choose their activities.

This specialized classroom will be offered during our Sunday 11am service in the Kid’s Korral classroom in the West Building. Once Colorado Community Church moves to its new location in November 2019, the Multi-Sensory Room will be located in a room with the same name in the Children’s Ministry area.

In the meantime, parents are welcome to attend Children’s Ministry classes with their child to provide support.
