Sunday School - Special Needs Parenting- From Coping to Thriving


Starting Sunday, January 6th at 9 am, and led by Connie Warner.

Special Needs is a broad term that covers a wide variety of unique and individual challenges. Caring for someone with special needs can lead to feeling isolated and alone. Sometimes it feels like no one know what you’re going through.  The good news is, of course, God knows!  Not only does he know, but he’s placed us together so we can come alongside each other! 

This group for anyone who cares about a family or individual in this journey.  This 7 week session will provide opportunities to share stories, experiences, and prayer needs.  It will also provide guidance and biblically sound ways caregivers can care for themselves, by following Jesus’ example!

Special Needs Parenting: From Coping to Thriving offers emotional and spiritual resources for the journey of special needs parenting. Sharing personal insights as a theologian and the parent of an adult son with special needs, Rev. Dr. Lorna Bradley offers seven encouraging and practical tools to help the reader:

  • gain a deeper, grace-filled understanding of God’s presence

  • process deeply held feelings of grief and guilt

  • discover strategies for patience, self-care, and healthy relationships

  • find hope and healing

Please contact Connie Warner at with any questions.

“Special Needs Parenting is a must read for family members, pastors, and any person who works with special needs families. Dr. Bradley explores their challenges, grief, and joy with deep sensitivity, theological depth, and practical advice. A blessing to all who read it and allow their lives to be touched by wisdom born of personal experience and biblical scholarship.”
