Special Needs Ministry

Special Needs Ministry

Our mission is to empower and provide support to individuals with special needs and their families by facilitating an accepting community in which to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Our program provides individualized support during weekend services to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in their specific ministry environment. Additionally, we encourage individuals with special needs to serve their church community at a level that is appropriate for them. Everyone is welcome!

Young Adult Experience​

Participants with special needs (high school and older) will be able to connect intentionally with peers, attend worship together and experience a lesson that will help them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Join us in person at 11:15 a.m. at our Raleigh or Apex campus.

Parents' Night Out

Parents’ Night Out is a respite event for families impacted by special needs. Families can drop off their children for an evening of fun and games while they have some time to themselves. This event is for children of all ages and includes siblings who are neurotypical. Children will be divided by age for developmentally appropriate games and activities. Pizza will be served for dinner.

Parents’ Night Out is 6:00-8:00 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21 (Apex) and Friday, Dec. 2 (Raleigh).

Coffee House Nights

Coffee House Nights provide an opportunity for individuals, 14 and older, who are impacted by special needs to connect with peers for fun, games and spiritual development. This event is designed for individuals who attend Hope on the weekends, but also for those who are not connected to Hope.

Join us Friday evening from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Sept. 9, Nov. 4, or Mar. 24 at the Apex campus.
