Thrive exists to support and encourage families with kids birth through high school, with special needs to recognize they are known, valued and loved by God and by us.

By simply offering a safe, inviting, and encouraging place to build relationships with others and Jesus. This is LIFE CHANGING for these individuals and families. 

Through God's grace and strength, you can help ALL individuals see that they are one of God's beloved people. Your help is essential to teach individuals with special needs the following truths:

  • I am known by God. I am a treasured child of God. (Ephesians 1:5)

  • I am valued by God. I am here for a reason. (Jeremiah 29: 1l)

  • I am loved by God. (John 3:16)

  • I am special. God made each one of us wonderfully different. (Psalm 139: 14)

Parents of individuals with special needs are also served by our ministry. We will give them the opportunity to worship together — something many of them may not have been able to do before. We provide opportunities for the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of individuals with special needs, while partnering with parents and caregivers to be the spiritual leaders in their homes.

This ministry is offered at the 10:45 am service every Sunday and at our youth Sunday night services. If you child requires a buddy to attend age appropriate services, please contact Lexi McMahan before your visit if possible. We also offer a resource/ sensory classroom if your child requires that as well.
