REACH: Special Needs Ministry

REACH (REaching All CHildren) is Highrock’s inclusive program for families (all ages) that have special needs.

The purpose of the ministry is to provide support, encouragement, and adaptations as needed for all to experience the love of God and to grow a personal relationship with Jesus. We strive to work with families to provide programs and support that work for each individual as well as to create a community of support and friendship. 

REACH Programs and Events

REACH Buddies: Specifically trained volunteers to work one-to-one or in a group with each child in the program. We want all children of all ages to be able to participate in the most meaningful way during Sunday services, Kidsrock programs, youth programs, and additional church programs or events.

Respite Nights: We understand how difficult finding suitable childcare for a night out can be for children with special needs.  Regularly scheduled respite nights will provide a needed night out for parents with childcare for children and siblings in the ministry.  

Family Social Events: Fun events to get to know other families in the ministry.  

Get Involved

Interested in the ministry? Families interested in joining the program should email the REACH program director at specialneeds@highrockacton.org or call the church for more information. There will be a short needs assessment completed to determine the most appropriate accommodations and to select buddies that would be a good match. Training will be completed with each buddy that works directly with a child in the ministry. There will also be the option to join an email group for information about REACH events through Highrock. 

Interested in becoming a volunteer? Sensitivity training will be provided to all volunteers to provide a safe and welcoming environment. If you would like to volunteer as a buddy and/or directly with the REACH program please email specialneeds@highrockacton.org. You will need to fill out an application and sign a confidentiality waiver. Training and support will always be available! We think you will love joining us!
