Special Needs Ministry – Adult Volunteer Buddies Needed
FBCO has a ministry for families with children having special needs (preschool – 6th grade). The purpose is to give these parents and their children the opportunity to attend church like all other families. The majority of our volunteers are college students. They are very faithful, but most go home during Christmas, spring break and for the summer.
Our challenge is to develop a group of adults or local students we can call on when the college volunteers are not available. The primary focus is the 9:45 SS hour, however we would also like to help SN parents wanting to attend an 11:00 class or service. A buddy’s role is to stay with the child in the classroom to offer companionship and guidance.
Would you consider giving a Sunday or two each month to help these families when our college students are not available?
