We are casting a vision...
Light Ministry will serve persons of all ages all disabilities and their family members and caregivers. 'LIGHT is an acronym for Leaders Illuminating the Gospel of Hope and Truth as we seek to disciple those we serve into a personal relationship with God.
We believe that children are a gift from God, loved by Him and cherished by their families! We also believe that every child should have an opportunity to know the great love of God and experience the compassion and care of the community of believers. Some children have a variety of special needs and require a more individualized teaching approach with a more active, hands-on learning environment. We endeavor to meet these needs with trained volunteers who will work directly with their families to develop a plan that provides a climate of safety and fun in a relaxed atmosphere.
