River City Kids Special Needs is geared to providing children with special needs an environment in which they can thrive and learn about God’s wonderful love for them. We offer a Sunday morning program each week as well as free respite events once a month.
Our Special Needs ministry allows parents to worship while their child receives loving care according to their needs. The room is equipped with skill-appropriate toys and staffed by trained adults who comfort and direct children who need a different approach than the traditional classroom. Parents are welcome to come visit the program anytime.
Sundays | 10:00 a.m. in Room 111
FREE RESPITE EVENTS
We provide free respite events for children with special needs and their siblings, providing parents a time to go out to eat, run errands or just relax. Each child is connected with a buddy. The one-on-one connection assures that each child can participate in activities that best suit their needs and preferences. Respite events generally feature gym and playground time, violence-free video games, arts and crafts, approved movies and a gluten-free snack.
Our free respite events are held once a month for children ages 4 through grade 5. Reservations are required to participate so that we may secure the appropriate number of volunteers to work with your children. Contact us to make a reservation or to find out more.
UPCOMING RESPITE EVENT: Fall 2018 | Saturday, September 15, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
