Shine Ministry

We believe God has given each of us unique abilities and talents. Shine Ministry provides a variety of programs, classes, and support services to allow every person a chance to fully integrate into Southeast Christian Church.

Disabilities Ministry

Children

Each Campus provides buddies for those needing extra support to attend SE!Kids programming. The Blankenbaker Campus also offers a classroom for children who benefit from a smaller class with additional space for movement.

Teens and Adults

Teens in Middle or High School are encouraged to attend programming at the campuses. We are here to provide additional support as needed. For those preferring smaller classes at the Blankenbaker Campus, we offer the following:

Heart to Heart—This class is for adults with developmental disabilities who want to study the Bible and fellowship in a small group before weekend worship. Sundays at 8:00 a.m., WC246

Miracles—Teens and adults with developmental disabilities are invited to join our team of teachers as we share in worship, crafts, and a Bible lesson. Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. or Sundays at 10:45 a.m., WC246

HOPE (Helping Other People Excel)—An integrated adult Weekend Group that focuses on Bible study and serving others. This class is a traditional Sunday school setting where independent adults share life together. Sundays at 10:45 a.m., ATLR 201

Parents of Children with Special Needs

Join us for our weekly Weekend Group, Parents Ability Group, as well as occasional special classes focused on enrichment or the practical needs of our families. The Parents Ability Group meets on Sundays at 10:45 a.m. in Room WC239.

Events

Camp Freedom—A weekend camp for anyone with developmental disabilities age 10 and older. This camp includes all typical camp experiences modified as needed for the individual camper. Held each July at Country Lake, this is a favorite event of the year for many.

Shine Gala—Each year in October, we celebrate the unique way God made each of us. This formal dance party hosts over 1,000 guests with developmental disabilities for dancing, dinner, games, and a whole lot of fun.

Special Olympics/Special Olympics Young Athletes—We offer a variety of Special Olympics seasonal sports, including basketball, softball, soccer, bowling and cheerleading. We also offer Special Olympics Young Athletes, which is a family program for children ages 2-7 who have developmental disabilities to practice a variety of pre-sport skills. Contact disabilities@secc.org for more information.
