Recognizing the unmet need of families in Lake and surrounding communities, FBC Lake initiated plans to develop a ministry to serve special needs individuals and their families through a Special Needs Ministry. Our desire is:
- to provide accommodation to individuals with special needs desiring to participate in the worship and discipleship opportunities at FBC Lake,
- offer support to parents and families with special needs individuals, and
- supply resources specific to Christian discipleship of special needs individuals.
Currently the Special Needs Ministry is in the planning stage and is actively developing through conversations with special needs individuals and their families and specialists who regularly work with these individuals. The variety of characteristics and individual needs require extensive preparation, but our aim is to welcome all special needs individuals and their families desiring to grow in their walk with God.
Update: In November 2017 the Special Needs Ministry hosted their first event, a Fall Festival. A number of special needs individuals and families with special needs individuals attended. The event focused on connecting with such families to learn about ways FBC Lake can develop appropriate accommodations in order to best serve the individuals or families.
If you or a family member has special needs and want to plan a visit with FBC Lake during one of our regular services please email email@example.com and let us know what accommodations are needed. We want to do all that we can to provide a meaningful worship experience.
