WEPC Friends: a ministry to love and include children with special needs and their families

We believe that the Gospel changes everything.  Jesus’ love and mercy reaches into the lives and hearts of all believers through the covenant community of our church body.  WEPC Friends hopes to better provide opportunities for all children in the body to hear and experience the gospel in a safe, appropriate way.  We have found that there are children who need extra help, assistance, or understanding to participate in our ministries.  Every one of our children is unique, and has been lovingly created by God in His own image. It is important for the church to understand how physical disabilities, emotional or mental health struggles, illness or health concerns, food allergies or any other special circumstances may play a part in a child’s ability to fully participate in our ministries, and consider how we can love & support parents and families.

Please use this WEPC Friends Communication Form to tell us how we can understand, include and  better serve your family. 

A Sensory Room is available in Room 119 for a quiet place to relax, and decompress with sensory friendly toys, bean bags, and live audio feed from the sanctuary. Requires adult supervision from a parent or Children's Ministry volunteer.


The mission of West End Friends for Life is to make the Gospel accessible to adults with disabilities and their families.
