Special Needs Ministry
Birth - Age 17
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 led by Kristen Morgan. Well trained, certified, and caring, Kristen 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.
