INFANT-PRE-K

Our Early Childhood classes are designed to help our children (newborn to pre-k) find and follow Jesus! Our desire is that we partner with families in this journey.

For our infant and toddler classes, please bring along: 2-3 disposable diapers or pull-ups, change of clothing, bottle or pacifier, if needed. Please be sure to label all the items you bring and let the teacher know any helpful information about your child, especially if your child has any allergies.

CURRICULUM

In our Sunday morning classrooms, our toddlers and preschoolers will learn a new story of the Bible each week. We read the Bible story, sing, do crafts, learn sign language, and play games that relate to our story for the week. Four-year-olds to Pre-K also have a large group worship experience.

PARENT/CHILD DEDICATION

Three times a year (February, May, and October) Parent/Child Dedications are held in the Sunday morning services. This is a special time at Fellowship. The dedication is a public expression that parents will raise their child in a godly home with the support of the church. Prior to the dedication there is a mandatory class for parents who will be participating.

ONE-2-ONE MINISTRY

The Special Needs Ministry (One-2-One) exists to provide a Gospel-centered, inclusive environment for individuals with specific needs. We not only want to serve these individuals but also partner with their families as they participate in the life of the church.

We want to help any child or student who faces unique challenges related to physical, mental, behavioral, medical, or emotional needs that would benefit from additional support, helping enable them to hear the Gospel and fully participate in the mission of Fellowship.

In most situations, we use the buddy system where the individual is matched with a high school or adult buddy who will provide individual care in a classroom of peers or in our One-2-One area.

ONE-2-ONE FAQS

Yes. We work to best understand each individual’s special needs and how we can best support your family. After talking with our coordinator, we can work to develop a plan that fits your family best. We will send you a form that helps us better understand your individual family’s needs.

Buddies simply act as a helper. They are an extra volunteer who helps when necessary and to the degree necessary. The primary goal of our buddies is to provide an environment where people of all needs can hear the Gospel in a way that is clear to them.

Adria Trombley is our One-2-One Coordinator. He would love to connect with you to help put together a plan to provide support for your child. Please email [email protected] to find out more information and get the needed forms.

Yes! Our Rogers Campus is a rEcess and bEfriend site, organized by 99Balloons. Visit our Special Needs webpage to learn more!
