At the Grove Kids we want to include your child in every aspect as possible. This unique and amazing ministry matches trained leaders with children who have special needs so they can attend the Grove Kids service for their age group.

Special needs children are intentionally placed with a “buddy”–the same leader every week–so that they are given the opportunity to build a strong, lasting relationship. Our buddies work closely our Children’s Director, and alongside the family to provide a safe, fun time with the other children in their classroom. This ministry provides every child, no matter who they are, the opportunity to learn how amazing our God is.

If you have additional questions or to enroll your child in the Special Needs program, please email

If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this program, there are several roles available:

Buddy: commitment to one individual child every weekend or every other weekend.

Sub-Buddy: fill-in for a buddy when needed; this role is for those who cannot commit to a regular schedule but would still like to be involved.

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:12

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27
