SHINE Ministry

We are thrilled to announce that Black Rock has begun a ministry for special needs children on Sunday mornings, known as our SHINE ministry.  We want children with special needs to be able to participate in all of our Black Rock Kids environments here each week, and our goal is for every child to be supported and to engage with his or her peers through the support of a buddy (aide).  We are currently offering this one-on-one buddy system to children who are in nursery school through the fourth grade.  We would love to meet you and see how we can best assist your child here at Black Rock!

In order to accommodate a child with special needs, please submit an intake form to be completed either prior to or during your first visit to Black Rock.  If you prefer to complete this form online, click the button below.  Once we’ve looked at your form, we’ll reach out to you!

Throughout the four gospels, Jesus intentionally comforts, supports, and shares the Good News with people with disabilities.  God is faithful to us from our first breath until our very last; we believe he has called us to exhibit that same faithfulness to both children with special needs and their families.  If you are interested in volunteering your time to serve as a child’s buddy, please prayer about it and contact us!  We’d love to have you serve on our team.

If you would like to learn more about our special needs ministry, have any questions, or would like to volunteer, please contact Kent Currie at .
