SPECIAL NEEDS

At Mission Hill Church, we believe that people are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character regardless of their earthly abilities. Our goal in the Special Needs Ministry is to provide a place for individuals of all ages with various disabilities, alongside their families, to develop a personal relationship with Jesus so that they can mirror His character here on earth and live with Him in eternity. We provide a variety of classes on Sunday mornings to allow individuals to be active in accomplishing our mission: Love God Passionately and Love Others Intentionally.

Mainstream classes, buddy systems, and a custom-designed classroom are just some ways Mission Hill Church becomes a place of security and growth to those with special needs. Our main goal is to connect you with Jesus while discovering your God-given gifts!

FOR CHILDREN

Children from newborns through 5th grade with disabilities are supported in a variety of ways so that they may attend Sunday School class with their peers. An adaptive classroom is available for children who enjoy a smaller classroom setting with a small child-teacher ratio.

To attend this class or receive additional support contact Brianna@missionhillchurch.com at (813) 988-1138 before attending so that proper arrangements can be made for your child. It is also advised that you spend the first class with your child along with the buddy so all needs can be discussed and proper instructions can be given. Our desire is to make this transition as seamless as possible and continue with the child’s routines as best we can.

FOR STUDENTS

For students between 6th grade and 12th grade, we arrange for Buddies to attend the Youth program on Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM.

We also have a smaller, custom-designed classroom to meet each individual’s unique needs so that they can begin, or further, their relationship with Jesus Christ.
