Exceptional Families

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:14 NIV

Exceptional Families promotes meaningful connection between Mariners and individuals with disabilities, their families and caregivers for the purpose of connecting people in relationship. We encourage you to take the first step by expressing your interest in serving with Exceptional Families.

Here our some current opportunities that will get you plugged into EXCEPTIONAL FAMILIES:

Exceptional Days

Each week we would love to provide opportunities for adults with disabilities. These socialization programs will encourage participants to meet new friends, learn new skills and explore the community they live in. Programs include, but are not limited to: Art, Drama, Music, Life Skills, Career Readiness, Yoga, Sports & Recreation, Academic Success, and much more. Exceptional days are currently slated to be every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-12:30p. If you would like to assist in these programs or if you have a skill set or gift you would like to bring to Exceptional Days, we would love to hear from you.

Special Events/Weekend Activities

We will be hosting dances, sports outings, clinics, camps, karaoke nights, bible studies and rooted groups throughout the year. If you would like to be a part of these Special Events, please sign-up today!

Exceptional Monday Nights with Special Olympics

Starting this fall, we are partnering with Special Olympics in our Community Center as they practice for their Team Competitions. (Nov 19-Mar 4 – Floor Hockey. | Mar-June – Basketball). As volunteers, we will be “Fans In The Stands”, cheering for the athletes as they practice with their coaches. There will also be opportunities to assist the Special Olympics coaches during some of the skills instruction. Volunteers are needed to assist the team with set-up and tear down of the equipment.

Mariners Church Saturday/Sunday Services Special Friends Volunteer:

It is such a wonderful blessing to invest in the life of a child, and by extension, we serve the entire family. If you would like to volunteer with Mariners Kids, JHM, or HSM as a Special Friend, we would love to help you get connected with our Family Ministry
