Do you have a program for children affected by autism?
Yes. We have a program through Autism Family Care for families with children affected with autism. Many families with children affected by autism are uncomfortable with going to church in fear of having to deal with stares and unsolicited comments. Every Sunday we invite parents to come hear the word of God in an inviting atmosphere as their children affected with autism are cared for in our Sunday program called Friends of Angels.

Our Friends of Angels Sunday Program starts at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday mornings. The class is designed to provide loving care, activities and Bible teaching for children with autism. The class is staffed with one autism specialist and several trained volunteers. Activities and teaching are tailored to meet the needs of individual children.

In addition to our Friends of Angels Sunday Program, we also conduct an outstanding weekend camp each Summer for families affected by autism. Our desire is to give the parents and caregivers a much deserved weekend break as they attend workshops and their children are being cared for by professionals and volunteers.

Yes, please read more about "What We Believe" here.
