Loved Ones

Loved Ones is a disability ministry reaching people of all ages; from babies all the way up to adults. We recognize that this can be a very broad spectrum, it is our desire to come alongside everyone. It is our goal to have buddies/friends for all who need one-on-one, to have Respite Saturdays once a month, parent support groups and a weekly adult class on Saturday nights during church.

Check out the video to learn about and see the heart behind this ministry.

If you want to serve with our ministry or sign up your loved ones, you’ve come to the right place!

Looking forward to having you join a ministry that you can’t help but be blessed.

..Loved Ones offers a weekly weekend class for adults with disabilities (18 and up) during the Saturday night service. We start in the South auditorium for worship and then transition to S107 for fellowship and teaching. Please look for the rows in the back of the South Auditorium that say “Reserved for Loved Ones Ministry,” that way we can sit together as a group while we worship along side our church family. We meet all year long (even through the Summer).

No registration required but we do ask that you fill out our participant application (if you have not so already) so that we can know how to best come along side you.

We hope you can join us!


We are offering Respite Saturdays once a month for families of those with disabilities. This is designed to give parents time for themselves, and is open to all ages. Those with young kids in Loved Ones and their siblings are welcome to join us. We will have a time of worship, fun and fellowship.

The next Respite Saturday will be:

August 10 from 11 a.m to 2 p.m.
