Sunday Morning Classes & Volunteer Opportunities

AE (Ages 6-12)

11am  | Rm 360, Millbrook Campus
A Sunday School class for children with special needs, ages 6-12. We embrace each child's special needs and provide a safe environment where they can learn about Jesus in a more sensory-integrated environment. Children worship through music, prayer, crafts, and play. We also provide shadows for children who are able to participate in their main-stream classes as needed.

AE Teens and AE Adults

11am  |  Rm 501, Millbrook Campus
A Sunday School class for teens and preteens with special needs, ages 13+. This class is a more structured environment. We offer worship, prayer time and a Bible lesson with discussion. AE Teens and Adutls can worship, do crafts, pray, and develop a relationship with Jesus. It is a great time of learning and fellowship in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. We also provide shadows for teens who are able to attend youth main-stream programs as needed.
