WELCOME TO EMBRACE
Holy Covenant UMC’s Special Needs Ministry! Embrace Ministries began in 2015 when faithful members wanted to provide a meaningful way to include all people in the life of our church. We lovingly refer to our special needs participants as VIPs (Very Important People.)
Our Embrace Ministry provides an interactive worship experience for participants during the 11 am worship hour. All VIPs will be supported by our trained Partners in Ministry to help them actively participate in worship activities. Parents of VIPs may attend the worship service in the sanctuary or stay and worship with us in Embrace.
Embrace Ministry is comprised of other components aside from our worship class.
Our Embrace Soccer program is an indoor soccer league for players 5 years old and up who use manual wheelchairs. This league is offered during the Spring and is played 3 on 3 with no goalie.
You’ve Got a Friend in Me Embrace Summer Camp is a day camp for campers who have completed Kindergarten to Adults with special needs. Camp activities include stories, music, science, crafts and games. Campers have a peer partner to assist them in actively participating in all the camp activities and most importantly to be a FRIEND!
Our ministry is growing and we are eager to share this exciting time with you. Come grow with us!!!
