New Life provides a safe and loving environment for adults and children of all ages and developmental spectrums. We seek to create an inclusive atmosphere that encourages connection, conversation, and understanding. Our team of trained volunteers enjoys working with both adults and children regardless of their unique abilities and challenges. On a case by case basis, we utilize a one-to-one buddy system, and also have a sensory room should a child need to regroup in a separate, less stimulating environment. Our motor room allows our children to explore and play in a safe environment where they can express their needs in a room filled with care and support. The adults at our “Kings Table” group meet every Sunday morning at 11:00 to worship, pray, and enjoy each other’s company while listening to an encouraging word from a leader or a member of the group.
The Kings Table: II Samuel Chapter 9 tells the story of King David and Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan. In spite of his disability, Mephibosheth ate at the King's table, as all the sons of the King.
The King's Table is a weekly group for adults with special needs (anyone who faces physical, learning or cognitive disabilities) to learn of this wonderful life in Jesus through worship, prayer and biblical teaching. We love to pray and share our lives as we give to others. This group meets on Sundays from 11:00AM-12:30PM in the World Prayer Center at New Life Church.
For more information, please click HERE and search “The King’s Table”.
Specialized Needs Classrooms: New Life Kids provides a safe and loving environment for children up to 12 years old and developmental spectrums. For children 12 years+ we may be able to provide a "buddy system" upon request. We seek to create an atmosphere that encourages regulation, connection, conversation and understanding. Our team of trained volunteers enjoys working with ALL children regardless of their unique abilities and challenges. When possible, we utilize a one-to-one buddy system and, we also have two sensory rooms: one room provides a calming, less stimulating environment and one room provides additional space to get the “wiggles” out. In order to best serve your child or for more information about ministry opportunities for adults with specialized needs, please email Jeni Mason.

Sharing your story might help another person or family realize they aren’t alone. Parent Mentors, Marriage Mentors, Meals Ministry, Hospital/Shut-In Ministry, Prayer Teams and Support groups are just a few of the many ways that you can participate.
If you have a desire to walk alongside someone during their challenging season, we would love to connect with you!
