WELCOME to Shine Special Needs Ministry!

At First Baptist, we are committed to loving and caring for children and adults with special needs. We believe each of them are special to God because they are created in his own image and likeness. At Shine and Shine Jr., we provide a safe and fun environment where these individuals receive special care, participate in activities that reflect their unique needs, and hear the good news about Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

Shine is for adults with special needs and takes place during both Sunday School and the worship service. Shine Jr. is for minors and happens during the 9:00 Sunday School hour.

We would love to hear about how our church can serve you. If you are interested in a family member attending the Shine or Shine Jr. classes, please reach out!

What does the Bible say about disabilities?

Understanding what Scripture says about disabilities and how God regards individuals affected by disability is an important piece of any disability ministry (Psalm 139:13-16; 1 Corinthians 12:21-25; John 9:1-3; Luke 14:12-14; 2 Samuel 9).
