*With God's blessing and investment by many, worship buddies has grown to over 30 families!
What Is It?
Worship Buddies is a Sunday morning ministry that breaks down barriers for children with special needs, allowing them to participate in Children’s Ministry alongside their peers. We do so by pairing each child with their own “buddy”. Our buddies are trained to know and meet each child’s needs to make worship accessible for children of all abilities. This ministry allows families freedom to attend adult worship and build community while confident that their child’s needs are being met. If you are interested in serving, please email us at .

How do I connect to Worship Buddies?
Worship Buddies always wants to welcome new families with special needs to the Chapel! In order for us to get to know your family, we like you to:
Step 1: Click the Family Profile button below and download the form, complete and save the fillable PDF to your computer, and then upload the document below and click the "Send" button. Only a staff member and our Worship Buddy Coordinator will view this information initially.
Step 2: Following the submission of your form, either church staff or our Worship Buddy Coordinator will contact you and your family to have a face to face conversation so that we can learn more about your family and your child's strengths and abilities, explain our programming, and answer any questions you may have. This meeting will help us be able to best pair your child with a Worship Buddy.
***If you are unable to complete these steps prior to your first visit, please visit the Children's Ministry Welcome Desk when you arrive. After your child is checked-in, we will need a parent/guardian to serve as your child's buddy until we can complete the above steps.
