Our Special Needs Ministry welcomes children, teens, and adults with special needs into the community of our church. We are dedicated to supporting people with special needs and their families through worship, discipleship and social and recreational opprotunities.

Our Goals:

  • Provide a safe and loving environment.
  • Nurture each person’s individual needs, skills and abilities.
  • Serve our special needs community and their families through programs that disciple and  build long lasting friendships and community.
  • Provide families the opportunity to participate in the life of the church.


Our Mission is to achieve inclusion enabling people of all abilities and gifts to participate in Chapelwood's community of grace.


We look forward to meeting you! Contact with our Special Needs Ministry Director before attending is encouraged. Prior to your visit, we ask all parents, guardians and caregivers to complete the registration form. Once we have received your completed forms, our Ministry Director will be in contact with you.
