Welcome to HUGS!

We influence individuals with special needs to find and follow Jesus

Our HUGS (Special Needs) Ministry at LifePoint welcomes kids, students, and adults with special needs into all areas of ministry.

Parents know their child’s strengths and needs better than anyone,
so we’re excited to partner with you to help influence your child to find and follow Jesus.

We are (re)gathering!

 HUGS is now meeting in person at 9:30. 

Join us in person !

  • Capacity will be limited in order to help keep our students safe.
  • Pre-registration required each week and will open the Thursday before.
  • Masks are required for all volunteers and for all students who can tolerate wearing them.
  • Temperature checks will be given upon arrival.
  • Parents/caregivers will be required to handle any bathroom needs.

Virtual/alternative options still available

If your student is not ready to join us in person, we will still be
offering alternative ways to connect, including:
  • Sunday morning small groups for elementary and teens/adults
  • Wednesday afternoon Bible study
  • Occasional events that allow us to connect in safe ways

VIRTUAL BIBLE STUDY GROUP 

Each Wednesday at 4:00 pm, we facilitate a virtual small group designed for adults with special needs. The group studies a section of the Bible through creative and engaging activities, discusses real life application, and shares in a time of prayer. 

WE’RE HERE FOR YOU!

Being a caregiver to a child or adult with special needs can be a tough job. We want you to know you are not alone!

OUR HUGS VOLUNTEERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

They create a safe place for all people to be cared for and BELONG. You have what it takes to be a HUGS volunteer if you identify with the following:

I can empathize with an individual who demonstrates behaviors I might not understand.

I can be flexible and think on my feet.

I can be a friend and share the love of Jesus with others.

We provide curriculum for our groups to study together in small groups and in Bible studies. We also offer access to prior sermons along with discussion questions designed for individuals or groups.

We find freedom when we daily engage with God and His word.
