As a church we host a free quarterly event that has made church more meaningful for families with special needs. It's called Respite, and it's a two and a half hour event (three hours for volunteers) that gives parents and caretakers a break from their everyday lives.
For some parents Respite nights are the only date nights they get all year. This means so much to the families that come that we don't want you to miss your opportunity to get involved in giving someone a much needed break.
At Respite, kids spend time doing all sorts of activities and it takes volunteers to keep those activities going. That's where you come in. Whether you're a teenager or a retired adult, there is a long list of roles that you can fill ranging from specialist roles to first-time volunteers with no experience. Anybody can find a place to serve, including you.
Our next event is Friday, August 4, and if you want to plug in and get involved in the life of the church in a new way, click the button to serve.
If you're a parent of a child with special needs and you want your child (and siblings) to attend this Respite event, click the attend button. (Please note: each child attending Respite needs a separate registration.)
