SPECIAL needs ministry at eastside christian church PROVIDES A SAFE AND LOVING ENVIRONMENT FOR PERSONS WITH SOCIAL, PHYSICAL, MENTAL OR DEVELOPMENTAL DIFFERENCES WHERE WE ENCOURAGE THEM IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS!

To provide the best experience please click on “help us plan your visit” to fill out an intake form prior to your first visit. Depending on your child’s age we have two options:

Preschool - 8th Grade

For ages 3 - 13 we provide a self-contained room that mirrors our Kidside program. We provide curriculum and environment accommodations so each child can participate at their ability or comfort level. Alternatively, a Special Forces Buddy is paired with your child as they mainstream into one of our Kidside classrooms.

high school + up

For ages 14 & up we provide a self-contained room where the main service is streamed at a lower volume level. Basic activities are provided and monitored by two fully screened Change Makers.
