Special Needs Ministry

Reaching out to individuals within our church, as well as to friends in the community who have special needs, is a commitment at TLC. Partnering with fantastic ministries such as Bridge of Hope, Joni and Friends, Joyful Noise, and Wheels for the World, our goal is to touch the lives and hearts of individuals with physical and developmental disabilities.

  • Bridge of Hope: Providing nursing home worship services, outings and activities in several local nursing homes. For more information, visit www.bridgeofhopefoundation.org. or contact Mary Masters mary@cruzio.com or 831-464-2362

  • Joni & Friends Camp: Be a camp counselor (in Scotts Valley) for those with special needs and extra large hearts! Pastor René calls this camp his “all-time favorite”! Held each year in late June and early July. To learn how to participate, call Bay Area Joni and Friends Ministries at cbirmingham@joniandfriends.org or 408-517-0931 or 510-727-8845.
