Special Needs

The Shine Ministry strives to effectively communicate the gospel to individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities, and to eliminate barriers that prevent them and their families from living in community with the body of Christ.

RESPITE Nights

We are excited to offer respite nights for families who are part of the Shine Ministry. Respite care is a short-term period of rest for primary caregivers provided by a third party. Learn more about why we offer respite care.

Next Respite Night: Monday, May 13, 5:30-8:00pm
Pizza will be served for dinner to all those that register in advance! All must register to attend.
 
Stay tuned for the registration link!
