SPECIAL NEEDS

Embracing the Special Needs Community

INFO FOR PARTICIPANTS

The PEACE Program of GPC strives to serve the needs of exceptional individuals of any age. We offer a variety of programming to help meet the special needs of each person and family we are blessed to serve. At GPC, we seek to include and engage all individuals with exceptional needs in their most comfortable setting. We are blessed to have the opportunity to provide small groupings, with awareness of individuals’ needs, in sensory-sensitive environments, via hybrid in-person and Zoom engagement opportunities in some programs. Our prominent programs – AMPlify and Friendship Circle – follow the Germantown School District’s calendar, observing the same holidays and breaks. Additionally, we offer Wacky Wednesdays in the Word, a summer Vacation Bible School experience.

 

Our focus stems from our desire for all students to learn:

  • They are made in the image of God
  • God loves them and wants a relationship with them
  • They are a valued part of the GPC family

the Place where Exceptional Adults and Children are Embraced

INFO FOR VOLUNTEERS

As GPC’s PEACE Program grows, so grows our need for trained volunteers.

Having a background in working with individuals with special needs is NOT required, because the PEACE Program Director and staff will equip you with the tools you need to serve. Several volunteer opportunities await and are likely perfectly aligned with your God-given gifts and talents!

The SNMT (Special Needs Ministry Team) is accepting applications for Buddy Volunteers. Buddies serve in 2 ways:

  1. Extra hands in the self-contained classroom
  2. Assistant in the typical classroom environment
