Matthew’s Ministry is a program offered at Providence Church that:
- Welcomes children with special needs and their families into our church
- Provides trained shepherds who are paired with children with special needs so that they may participate in Providence KIDS activities
- Uses the inclusion model: placing children in worship, classes, and activities with their peers enabling them to participate using their own abilities
All of our Matthew’s Ministry volunteers have gone through special training lead by Sharon Lyttle (a pediatric occupational therapist and co-owner of Lyttle Fox Therapy in Mt. Juliet) and Claire Campbell (a pediatric speech-language pathologist).
Matthew’s Ministry services are provided during all three services. If you have questions about the program or would like to register your child, please contact Angela Reiss.
