In our church, we believe that every child is special to the Lord, from the littlest one to the older one. In NYC, we have not found many churches that address the issues that children with special needs have. Therefore, many families simply don't go to church or stop going because these issues are not being addressed by the church.
We have created a special education classroom, applying Son-Rise techniques, where children with special needs could attend. In Jesus' own words, He said: "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14.
We believe in creating an environment in which children, not matter what their needs are, could learn, grow and be nurture in the word of God.
Our children attend Sunday school in our classroom located in the second floor of the building and we have a staff of 1:1 or 1:2.
