Then He also said to him who invited Him, “When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.
Luke 14:12-13

The Reception

The Reception is a ministry dedicated to reaching the hearts of those with special needs with the heart of Christ. We desire to provide support and encouragement to families and caregivers of those with special needs in an atmosphere of love and safety.

The Reception strives to recognize and encourage individual strengths and abilities while presenting and modeling biblical truths. Using communicative devices such as Big Macks, Picture Boards and Talkers, we follow a routine of fellowship, worship, modified Bible studies, scripture memorization, prayer and praise.

All ages are WELCOME at The Reception, if you or someone you know lives with special needs, please feel free to visit our class, and be blessed.

It is our prayer that we will have a Reception class at each service on both campuses. It is also our prayer to equip and train Sunday School teachers in receiving children with special needs into their own classrooms.


Before attending our classes, please contact Ray Palosaari to meet and discuss your needs.
