At FBC JAX, it is our goal to provide loving assistance and biblical knowledge to those in Jacksonville with special needs. We believe in the sanctity of life and God’s sovereign plan for everyone He has created! We understand that everyone is special in God’s eyes, and they are to us as well. Both children and adults who need special care, or whose mental capacities are limited, need to know God’s love and purpose for their lives. Understanding what Scripture says about disabilities and how God regards individuals affected by disability is an important piece of any disability ministry (Psalm 139:13-16; 1 Corinthians 12:21-25; John 9:1-3; Luke 14:12-14; 2 Samuel 9).
Our desire is to accommodate and embrace these individuals and their families by providing opportunities to grow and learn spiritually. Understanding that these people have various levels of abilities, both mentally and physically, we strive to share the Gospel through Bible stories, Bible Learning Activities and music. Our teachers show the love of Jesus and unite with our church to provide for the whole body of Christ at FBC JAX.
Each Sunday morning we meet on the bottom floor of the Middle School Building on the corner of Laura and Ashley Streets. Handicap parking is available right outside the building for those who attend our Special Needs Ministry. Our program begins at 9:00 AM and ends after the morning worship service. We would love to welcome you!
