PurposeTo provide a safe and accepting environment where we teach the love of Jesus to our students while freeing caregivers to find and follow Jesus.
ServiceThe HUGS Ministry (Help for Uniquely Gifted Souls), meets at 9 and 10:45am Sunday morning. Our classes are designed to teach the Word of God in a way that is exciting, easy to understand and relevant to the lives of our students. Hug Kids provides one-on-one assistance for children included in Children and Student Ministry activities, in preschool through 8th grade. Special Huggers is a class for children who require more individualized attention, and our Hug Givers class is designed to meet the needs of our teens and adults. Activities during the year include respite events, outreach events to the disability community including movie nights for our teens and adults, an Easter Egg Hunt, and a summer carnival.
