Creating A respite environment
Every Sunday | 10:15 - 11:30 AM
NCPC Fellowship Building
Special Needs Children of all ages are invited to join us in the North Creek Fellowship Building on Sundays during the 10:30 hour of worship every week.
We want to give parents and caregivers the opportunity to worship while trained staff and volunteers look after their children with disabilities. After the worship hour, our caregivers will provide additional hours of respite depending on a parent’s need, and those arrangements can be made on a weekly basis with the staff.
Note, there is no cost to attend C.A.R.E. However, we kindly ask you to register your child. For more information email us or call 954-428-8772.
