All are precious in His sight
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL PEOPLE are a gift from God, that they are His image-bearers, loved by Him and cherished by their families! Each person should have the opportunity to know the great love of God and experience the love and care of the community of believers. We also know that each person is unique! Some of our children, students and adults have a variety of special needs and need a more individualized approach either with one-on-one aides or in a smaller, more hands-on learning environment.
During our 9:30AM and 11:00AM Sunday services, we provide a comfortable ‘home-base’ classroom for those of all ages with special needs, who need a smaller, more individualized environment. This classroom provides some alternative learning activities in a much more relaxed atmosphere while adapting the Gospel Project Bible Curriculum to meet the individual needs of those in attendance. For those children or students who wish to join in the Sunday School classroom environment with their peers, but need some additional support, we provide one-on-one volunteer aides where appropriate.
OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE:
- a loving environment where everyone can learn about Jesus in way they can understand and value
- an increased student to teacher ratio (usually 1 teacher for every 1-2 students)
- a more individualized and interactive learning environment
- open communication between those in attendance, teachers and parents
- a successful transition into Sunday School classrooms and large group activities whenever appropriate
Teachers and aides in this ministry are all volunteers. Some have limited or personal experience and others are professionally trained but they all have a heart to serve our families with special needs. We encourage open communication between the teachers and parents in order to help us understand how we can best serve those in attendance and their family. We look forward to serving you and your family and we’re praying that your experience here at Canyon Hills Community Church will be just what you’ve been looking for!
