Special Needs Ministry

Ages Birth - 17 and Adults ages 18+

Here at First Baptist Forney we offer a Christ-centered environment with a person-centered emphasis that enables us to focus on the entire family's spiritual growth. We view special needs as a different ability rather than a disability. We believe it is all part of God’s plan to care, love and welcome children with special needs into our church fellowship and community.

Therefore, we consider it a privilege to offer this ministry and would love to speak with you regarding the needs of your child.  

At FB Forney we currently offer an inclusion-buddy system and self-contained learning environment.

Sunday Bible Study

Special Needs Children's Bible Study Class, First Friends, is held on Sunday's at 9:30a & 11:00a in Room D024.

Special Needs Parents Day/Night Out

Our Special Needs Ministry is dedicated to meeting the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of special needs children / teens and their families.  We offer several community-wide, free Parents Night Out (PNO) dates throughout the year where your children are cared for in a loving and fun environment while parents enjoy a night out! This is for ages 1 to 17. Child care and food will also be provided for siblings who are 12 years old and younger.

Friday, May 19 from 6-9:00 p.m. Register by end of day on Wednesday, May 17
