Special Needs Ministry
Through The Roof was started after God had shown a vision that we needed a class where we could take care of children and adults with special needs. Parents would then be able to go to church and get to know Jesus who gives them everything they need to take care of their child or adult with special needs.
Sunday Class is at 10 a.m. at the San Jose during the summer & 10 & 11:45 a.m. starting again on Sunday, Sept. 13 in the Sanctuary Building Near Volunteer Central
We also have a Special Needs ministry at the Morgan Hill Campus at 10 am
We offer a “Sunday School” class for children or adults with special needs.
We have a structured class environment with a consistent routine. Our class starts with opening prayer followed by amazing worship, and because not everyone is vocal, we have musical instruments for them to make joyful noise to Jesus with. A simple bible story teaching follows including our memory verse with words & gestures. It’s then the kids turn to pray and make their requests to God. Snacks & playtime finishes off our class as we wait for parents to arrive.
Friday Night Respite Care
We offer a monthly respite care night for children/adults with special needs and their siblings. The second Friday of every month is set aside for us in The Horton Youth Center from 6:30- 9:30p.m.. We have games to play, puzzles to put together, crafts to make, movies to watch, snacks to eat and friends to have a fun with.
Reservations are required, we need to make sure we have the correct child to volunteer ratio, so please contact us the week prior to our Respite Care Night. Just give us your email, and we will be happy to add you to our notification list, so you can enjoy the evening off!
