Adult Special Needs

We believe every individual is valued and loved by Jesus and is a beloved child of God.
North Heights offers a vibrant ministry of inclusion for teenagers and adults with special needs, their caregivers, and family members.
  • Learn about the love of Jesus
  • Grow in Christian faith
  • Find your place in the family of God
  • Be accepted in the body of Christ
  • Find connection with others in a loving and caring environment

Check classes or the event calendar for current offerings.


Our mission is to build relationships while modeling the love of Jesus and life in the Holy Spirit. Our desire is for all participants to know Jesus as their Savior and friend, grow in their faith, and find a place within our church family.

Programs are available to all families and disabilities.

If a participant has a health, behavior, mobility, sensory, or other condition that requires prompt attention, it is expected that a PCA, caregiver, staff person or family member representing that individual be present with the participant for the duration of the program.

If supervision is needed for mobility in hallways, using bathroom, feeding issues, etc, it is expected that a PCA, caregiver, staff person or family member representing that individual assist with these cares.

We are open to talking with families and caregivers on an individual basis to determine level of care needed during programs offered if a participant is in an independent living situation or takes medical transportation to/from community events independently.
