Collective Kids Support and Inclusion Ministry/Buddy Program
We celebrate our differences and are compelled by the truth that everyone is fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator. Collective Kids also provides support for children who have special needs through our Collective Kids Support and Inclusion Ministry by our trained volunteers in our Buddy program.
Vision: Collective Kids Support and Inclusion Ministry (CK Buddy Program) exists to:
::Support families who have children with special needs who require extra support by fostering inclusion, safety and independence for the child within the children’s ministry.
::Come alongside a child who needs extra support during any given Sunday Service and help meet their individual needs so that all children can learn in community about the Father’s love.
::Support the entire family in a way that parents will find a place to belong, worship, rest in the peace of God and encounter Holy Spirit within Community where they are able to connect into vital relationships knowing that their child is safe and ministered to in a Christ-like, nurturing environment.
::Celebrate each child as fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator
The Collective Kids Support and Inclusion Ministry’s mission is to provide support for families who have children with special needs. We will seek to create a safe, nurturing, Christ-like environment so that all children can experience the gift of living in Christian Community where they can experience the love of God for them alongside of their peers.
Inclusion: “God combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.” (1 Corinthians 12:22-25)
