Special Needs Ministry
At Heritage, our goal is to integrate children with various needs into the classroom while their families attend service. Our buddies are trained teens and adult volunteers who stay by your child's side and assist them with activities. They spend time getting to know them on a personal level to predict and prevent difficulties
To set up a buddy for Sunday mornings please contact ChildrensMinistry@HeritageChristian.org

rEcess is a monthly respite program provided for children with special-needs.
We offer rEcess the 3rd Friday of each month January “ October from 6:00 “ 9:00PM.
At rEcess, volunteers provide one-to-one attention for children with special needs. We welcome siblings join us for the "sibling track" which provides them with their own exciting activities.
rEcess allows parents to enjoy a "date night without worry or concern for the children. Our volunteer team is heavily trained and is comprised of several professional special education teachers, medical professionals and experienced people in the field of special needs.
Our desire is to build relationships with our volunteers and the families they serve. We want our families to feel they have a deep relationship with us and they know we care and love their family members.
Each month has a different theme, but the same structure¦..to provide a safe, exciting and fun-filled environment for those attending, allowing the families to enjoy a night out.
rEcess provides a starting point for building communities of support around these families, allows volunteers an opportunity to learn and love and, honestly, it's just a lot of fun.
