God made each person in His image, and everyone has a purpose and inherent value. But many individuals with special needs and their families don’t experience this hope. So Arise offers a wide range of opportunities meant to encourage and empower the whole family.

We want to see each person rise to their unique purpose and shine their light for everyone to see!

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1


WHAT WE OFFER

(All are open to anyone - not just those who attend IBC)

ARISE ROOMS AND PALS

sunday services & certain special events

We have 3 classrooms specifically designed for individuals with special learning and sensory needs. We provide a safe, interactive, and loving environment to learn about God and build friendships with others. Our rooms are staffed with caring, trained volunteers, and ratios are kept low to guarantee individualized attention.

Pals are one-on-one volunteers who help children participate in activities and interact appropriately with their same-age peers.
