Special Needs

The Beyond Club Ministry

Every Other Wednesday:   April 4 & 18, May 2, 16 & 30, and June 13
6:30-8:00 pm, Room 142
The group gathers for dinner in Stephenson Hall at 6:00 pm

Our group of about 25 adults with special needs meets every other Wednesday from September through June. Our members are quite active! Many of them went to school together in Arlington or Fairfax County, and many participate in Special Olympics sports together. Most live at home with their parents or have been integrated into group homes.

The group gathers for dinner at 6:00 pm in the church's fellowship hall (Stephenson Hall, Room 228). We then go to the "club room" in room 142 for our meeting. The format includes an "ice breaker," a lesson, sometimes a craft, and often music and singing. We close at 8:00 pm.

In addition to the meetings, we offer several special events for the members:  Valentine's dinner dance, "boys night out" (laser tag/pizza, etc), "girl's night out", "Night at the Movies" and other events.

We welcome new volunteers! Beyond Club continues to grow in size, so there is a very real need for new volunteers to help. Love and listening are the qualifications needed. You will be blessed!
