We know that for families with a special needs child, one of the biggest challenges is finding time to nurture your own faith. At FCC, we want to come alongside families and all of their children, recognizing that every child is created in God’s image with a special purpose and plan for his or her life.

sunday worship services
(coming soon)
We would like to invite your child to attend service in our special needs classroom. Our special needs department is staffed by trained childcare workers who are committed to creating an environment of safety, love and learning for your child. Weekly lessons include fun activities as well as teaching from the Bible. Each student is able to participate in our program and lessons to the extent of their abilities. We practice inclusion whenever possible and want our students to be accepted and celebrated for their achievements. We look forward to serving your child!
respite for special needs families
We believe that special needs parents are heroes and need a break every once in a while. FCC offers “respite” events where you can drop off your special needs child for a few hours. Our trained special needs volunteers will provide your child with a fun-filled program that will include games, Bible stories, and refreshments. You will be free to go on a date, run some errands, or just take a nap! Please contact Jeff and Jacqui Banta for the next Respite date!

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
