Special Needs

The Friends Special Needs Ministry at Woodridge seeks to share the love of Christ with children, teens, and dependent adults whose successful participation in worship and Bible study is limited by the traditional classroom setting. We provide a safe, loving, Christ-centered program for the special needs child or adult while parents and siblings attend worship service, Sunday School, or serve in the church.


Sunday School at 9:30am and Worship at 10:50am

Each week they will learn through age-appropriate Bible stories, activities and lots of fun by our trained and dedicated teachers.

Night to Shine

Friday, February 7, 2020 | 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. Last year, on February 8, 2019, 655 churches from around the world came together to host Night to Shine for approximately 100,000 honored guests through the support of 200,000 volunteers!

Night to Shine is a night for the churches to shine, the volunteers to shine, our honored guests to shine, and most importantly, God to shine!
