Embraced

Marianne and Sam Alhadeff have been an amazing couple to work with on this project. Their son Mike is an adult who has special needs. Marianne and Sam had a vision for a church service that fit Mike, others like him and their families. 

 

The first Sunday of every month we offer a unique worship service that is smaller and less overwhelming to the senses than most. Attendants are encouraged to come as they are, bring comfort items, wear comfortable clothes and move about the space if they would like.

 

For more information or to volunteer for this ministry, please email mackenzie@thesumnercenter.com.

GiGi's Playhouse

We love this partnership! We are excited to continue being a home for GiGi's Playhouse in our area. There are two parts to this program.

 

The first is a program that meets on Tuesday nights and creates an inclusive space for children and adults with special needs to come and have fun.

 

The second part is personalized tutoring, which is done throughout the week. GiGi's works with families and tutors to find a time that works best.

 

We would love to have you sign up to attend, and are also looking for more volunteers.
