Glo Party

Well the Glo Party was a BIG SUCCESS based upon the special needs kids having a blast playing games, creating a black light art piece, and showing off their moves at the Glo Party Dance. It was also a success if you consider that we had a fantastic presentation by Darla Farmer, CEO, and founder of Hope for Three. Hope for Three is an organization that was set up to provide support to parents of children on the autism spectrum. Those that attended received a wealth of information and recommendations during the Q&A. For more information on Hope for Three go their website:
Special Need Event - Family night

Special Needs Family Event

Saturday, May 4th 6:30 - 8:30pm

Celebrating Progresses, Social Time, Dinner, and Game Night

Many past attendees to our events have suggested that we have more time to meet each other and have social time to tell our stories and share information. That is exactly what we have planned for this next event!

Game night was a huge success last time for the children and young adults, so we are doing it again! Our youth pastor Rory and the youth group will be guiding the fun.

We will share good news on how our NEW WEBSITE is progressing and will include features that you have requested, such as links to resources and organizations, a Forum for questions and answers, a place to post your story, resources, book reviews, and more!

We also want to share how Spectrum Fusion is helping young adults on the Autism Spectrum find meaningful employment. We will have some video clips of presentations from the Reactor Room which brings community and business leaders together to mentor and network to find employment opportunities.

This will be an informative and social time with emphasis on Social and Fun.

Dr. Ham earned a Ph.D. in Psychology, specializing in autism, from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She has worked with individuals with autism and their families in the United States, United Kingdom, Nigeria, and Australia.

Spectrum Fusion works to improve the possibilities for individuals with autism.

Through innovative opportunities, they seek to help individuals with autism use their skills, interests, and strengths to reach their full potential. For more information, visit Spectrum Fusion’s website at As Dr. Ham discusses Spectrum Fusion and answers your questions, in another room of the church building we will have a Game Night for your loved ones. We will play Bingo and other games. It will be a fun time. Brandie Nickerson, our Special Needs coordinator, will oversee Game Night.
