UR Special is a team of individuals who serve in our children’s ministry area each week by teaming up with a child who needs some extra special attention. The UR Special team wants to ensure that his/her parents are free from anxiety and worry about the “what ifs” while the child is in children’s ministry and be able to be fully present during the worship time as a result of a team member specializing in the care for their child. The UR Special Team members help each child participate in worship, listen to the skit and participate in the lesson with his/her peers. They make any necessary accommodations throughout the worship time to help each child learn more about Christ and interact in a positive way with his/her peers. The UR Special Team helps the students find similarities while building acceptance and love among the children in the group despite the differences the children may have. No diagnosis or disability is too big or unwanted; all children are a joy!
