FUSION is the special needs ministry at Good Shepherd. Our mission is to reach and serve families impacted by special needs and create an environment for them to discover and embrace a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Special Needs Assistance One-on-One Buddies
We currently provide One-on-One Buddies during SPARKS (Sunday School) so children with special needs can participate in activities while their parents are in worship services.
We also provide One-on-One Buddies during Club 45 (4th and 5th graders), FUEL (Middle School), and IGNITE (High School) so students can fully participate with their peers in all activities.
FREE Respite Care Buddy Break
Buddy Break is a FREE, monthly childcare opportunity for children with special needs and their siblings. At Buddy Break, all children are paired up one-on-one with a buddy and we play games, do projects, play in the gym, and have a lot of fun—all while parents and caregivers have a well-deserved break.
Special Needs Volunteers
We are always looking for people to serve in FUSION. Lead activities such as crafts, music, and reading books. But most importantly, just be present with the kids and share the love of Jesus. All materials and training provided. You may also serve in planning and service teams (check-in, setup, etc.). If you are interested in partnering with us to serve children with special needs as they come to know and love God, please send us an email.
