Special Needs Children Sunday School Sunday Morning 9:30 am
Parents attend the main service. We take care of your kids.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place…. Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
All of God’s creations are brought to being with its own unique purpose. We are all made fearfully and wonderfully. Our days are already written in his book before we took birth. In other words, God knows all our weaknesses, trials, and disabilities, yet he chose to love us unconditionally. Most importantly, this is applicable to all the living beings he has created.
Jesus Welcomed Children
The Lord Jesus Christ has always welcomed human beings of all kinds. This includes children, adults, people with special needs and various disabilities among others.
The gospel of John describes two significant examples, wherein, Jesus himself says the purpose behind people with special needs. Firstly, Jesus with the man who was blind since birth. The disciples asked him the reason behind his disability. Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned…. This happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.” John 9:3.
Secondly, Jesus heard of Lazarus’ sickness he said:
“This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” – John 11:4
City Harvest Special Needs Children Sunday School
God has blessed City Harvest AG Church to lead our path to care for children with special needs . One such impulsive drive was the beginning of our Autism Sunday School for children with learning disabilities.
Children are truly God’s gift to mankind; they are blessed with magnificent characteristics of innocence, sense of wonder, faith, obedience, submission and numerous other. As parents it’s our duty to sacrifice ourselves to bring them up according to God’s will. However, this can be quite challenging if you are a special needs parent.
Kids with Autism, ADHD, and other anxiety issues undergo many struggles which they cannot explain. Many a times, loud sounds, bright lights, large gatherings etc can be overwhelming for them. Studies prove that the plausibility of children with autism and other special needs attending religious services are extremely low. Subsequently, this prevents the families as well from attending church services. Regular Sunday School sessions does not help children with special needs. These situations can certainly exhaust the parents emotionally and mentally while hoping for a brighter future for their child.
We at City Harvest AG Church, Bangalore truly abide to the stewardship the Lord has appointed us for. Hence, we believe that all of us need gospel for an eternal life irrespective of our special needs and disabilities. As a result of which in the year 2016 we started this ministry called Autism or Special Sunday School with a vision of being caretakers of children with special needs.
Our main goal is to help parents with autistic children irrespective of their religious background and faith. At the same time, help these kids realize that God loves and and God can transform them.
Special Needs Teachers
Our Autism Sunday School consists of a group of teachers who are well trained in special needs children. Teachers and shadow teachers are equipped with biblical knowledge to take care of kids with autism and learning disabilities. God has been working tremendously in this ministry since we started. Our kids have shown a lot of improvement over the years.
Special Sunday School is conducted every Sunday from 9:30 am to 11 am at City Harvest AG Church Bangalore. We utilize this time completely to submit our kids with special needs to the Lord. God’s word has the power to transform every person.
