Here at Crossroads Church we value the whole family. We understand that having a child with special needs is often challenging. Our goal with The Ark is to provide opportunities for all special needs families to express their gifts in service.

Check in

We have 2 simple steps to check-in to The Ark. First, click here to set up your KidCheck account. This helps us to gather all the information we need for each child in your family. 


Second, we want to know how to best care for your child in The Ark. We know that each child has individual needs based on their diagnosis. Please be as detailed as possible when filling out this form. Special_Needs_Buddy_Form.pdf


buddy system

Individuals who can attend classes and events with their peers but may need extra assistance are paired with a buddy. Buddies come alongside and provide friendship and whatever assistance is needed. Kids who are using buddies will have access to manipulatives, headphones, etc. to aid in their learning and focus. 

special needs room

The Ark is equipped with trained volunteers who are ready to care for your kids. We want to help any child or student who faces unique challenges related to physical, mental, behavioral, medical or emotional needs that would benefit from additional support, helping enable them to hear the gospel and fully participate in the mission of Crossroads Church.


For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
— Ephesians 2:10
