Special Needs Adult Group
Special Needs Group Meets 11 a.m. Sundays, room 212
Special, Transformed, Abilities, Revealed through the Spirit (STARS) — a ministry for adults with special needs.
For adults with special needs to come to the knowledge of Christ and to grow in Him.
At Pleasant Valley Baptist Church, it is our vision to see everyone in the community have the opportunity to connect with God and others. The STARS Ministry is an opportunity for the special needs adults and their families in our community to have the chance to come to the knowledge of Christ and grow with Him.
The STARS Sunday service includes music, fun, fellowship and prayer. Everyone is given the opportunity to express themselves and is always treated with dignity and respect. All of the STARS adults are led by a loving, caring team of volunteers that takes joy in respecting, supporting and honoring each of the adults.
The fellowship time is very interactive. The adults are encouraged to interact and assume leadership roles within the class and to contribute as much as each person may be comfortable with.
The STARS ministry is designed to provide adults 18 years of age and older, with moderate to severe disabilities, a time to worship and have fellowship together. The developmental disability could be physical, mental or both.
The STARS class meets on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. in room 212.
Our divine moment
A group of volunteers came together in the spring of 2006 to establish the only special needs ministry in the Kansas City – North area. The group realized the impact the ministry would have for these adults and their families. The entire family would have the opportunity to worship together.
The volunteers that serve in the STARS ministry at Pleasant Valley have the opportunity to serve in many capacities. Individuals can serve weekly, monthly or for specific functions. Opportunities to serve include assistance with Sunday lesson leadership, refreshment and snacks, worship music, artwork and costumes, administrative assistance and prayer.
