Do you have someone in your family with a disability or special need who is not attending church or their needs are not being met by our programs?
Under the direction of Crista Leamons, Bethel's Children's Ministries Department offers a "shadowing" program to families with special needs by partnering a Jackaroo or Jillaroo (volunteer buddy) with a Joey (child with special needs). Teaming in this manner allows one-on-one assistance and supervision so that kids can thrive through age-appropriate classroom inclusion.
We also offer a self-contained classroom where a quieter environment is beneficial to the child. Families check-in at (Room 115 - San Jose Campus) (Children's Registration area - Santa Clara campus) on Sunday mornings to register and connect with their buddy before going to class.
