sunday environments


imagine Kids

8:50 (Pre-registration only) & 10:10AM (Birth-5th Grade)

Located in Compass, our Birth-5th Imagine classroom offers a sensory Bible story, toys and sensory activities that go along with the morning’s lesson, as well as caring classroom leaders who enjoy getting to know and spend time with your children. If your child simply needs a bit of extra support in a typical classroom setting, we have a buddy system and a sensory break room/play room where  a leader attends the classroom as a one on one buddy with your child.


imagine Youth

8:50 (Pre-registration only) & 10:10AM

Our Youth Imagine classroom is located in our True North building along with the Middle and High School environments. In this class, we offer a Bible lesson with discussion in an environment that caters specifically to Middle and High School students with a space created for hanging out and fellowship as well as a room created as a multi-sensory environment. We also provide Peer or Adult Buddies for High Schoolers and Middle Schoolers at the 10:10 service who wish to participate in the typical 678 or HSM environments.


adult Bible Study

10:10AM only (Ages 18 and older)

Located in True North, our Gather ministry is an adult small group for individuals with special needs. In this group, we dive deeper into the Bible and talk about Christian leadership, serving, our spiritual gifts, and more. Our mission is to create community and friendship for adults with special needs in a Spirit-filled environment.
