4FRIENDS ministry

children & adults are welcome

4Friends is TBC’s ministry to children and adults with additional needs. Our 4Friends Ministry currently meets on Sundays during the 9:00am and 10:30am Worship hour. 4Friends participants will enjoy a time of fellowship, worship in Children’s large group, and interaction with others! Our volunteer team is led by several captains who have extensive knowledge and experience with people with additional needs and they are accompanied by some amazing buddies each week! Our 4Friends space is located upstairs directly next to the Children’s Check-In desk and contains numerous sensory items, games, and activities to allow participants to feel as comfortable as possible!

4Friends Parents, please join us in Worship and Bible Fellowship while knowing that your child will be cared for in a safe and secure environment! No reservation required!
