For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
— Psalm 139:13-14

The special needs ministry at WECC is designed to support children from babies to 6th grade with special needs. 

  • To fully include children with special needs and their family in the life of the church.
  • To ensure a safe and loving environment to learn about God and the Bible.
  • To support each child with consistent Buddy Helpers to promote his or her participation in Children's Ministry.

We believe: 

  • God created each child according to His perfect design.
  • Each child brings value to the church body.
  • We actively seek to include all children.

What is a buddy helper?

  • Remind the child of upcoming transitions and be a familiar face.
  • Provide updates & recommendations on child's success in the classroom to parents and supervisor. 
  • Assist child with physical needs when required.
