First time here?

Christ Journey offers a program for children with special needs. Here, they are cared for by trained volunteers in a safe and fun learning environment. Our mission in Special Discoveries is to help every child discover God’s love.

There are two easy ways to register your wonderful child:
• Download the form and bring it back to the Check-In Kiosk on your next visit
• Stop by the Check-In Kiosk and ask for assistance with registering your child for Special Discoveries

Once we receive your form, our Special Discoveries Coordinator will schedule a meeting with you. This is a time for us to get to know your family, for you to get to know the Special Discoveries ministry, and to partner together to determine the best class option for your child.


Perhaps no other act reflects the character of Jesus Christ more than serving people. Serving and giving provides us with opportunities to leverage our talents, giftedness and resources to meet the needs of others.

We’d love to tell you about the opportunities available in our special needs ministry. Email us to learn more.

Check In / Safety

Your child’s safety is very important to us. In order to ensure the best experience for you and them, please make sure to fill out a Child Intake Form. Instructions can be found above in the section titled “First Time Here?”

Trained professionals and volunteers serve as teachers in our classes. With a servant’s heart for special needs kids, they look forward to spending time with your child every Sunday. (Age requirement: 18 and up)

Room Integration: Children with special needs can also be paired with a Buddy Leader who gives the child individual attention as they are mainstreamed into a typical preschool or elementary class.
