Special Needs

Special Needs ministry

We know there is growing concern over the recent developments in the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic. Because our Macky & Friends participants fall into a vulnerable populations category; all Saturday and Sunday classes and activities for our Macky & Friends Ministry are canceled until further notice. In keeping with the CDC guidelines of avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people, we are also canceling our egg hunt, the Bridge, as well as any other events and activities for individuals with special needs. We are all in deep prayer for all of our families and for our country. We know that our participants may have greater difficulties with adjusting to change. For this reason, we are inviting everyone to stay connected with our ministry by visiting our Hope 4 Macky & Friends Facebook page. We will be rolling out some exciting ways to connect while we are doing our part to "flatten the curve." Please visit our Facebook page here and stay up-to-date with any further notices by visting this webpage frequently.

We may not be gathering in-person for a season, but we can still share and experience #HopeTogether! Join us Saturday night at 5:30 pm, Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:30 & 11:15 am and Sunday night at 5:30 pm.

Hope Special Kids and Adults is always looking for volunteers to assist with our Special Needs program.
