Access Ministry longs to encourage an environment of inclusion that brings Christ's love and value to each unique individual. We have a heart to reach those who have been affected by any form of disability in our church and community. We desire to support and encourage the parents and families of children with specialized needs.
WACC has incredible volunteers dedicated to serving the next generation who have specialized needs. Through this ministry, your preschooler through 12th grader will be able to engage in worship with peers while being assisted by their own buddy!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139:14

The books suggested here are good jumping off points. We realize that there will never be a book printed on parenting that each of us agrees with 100%, however each one gives us cause for evaluation and discussion. We ask you to bear this fact in mind as you read any of these suggestions.
Child safety is so important to us at WACC, which is why we use an electronic check-in system that allows us to look out for your child in the best way possible. Once you've registered your child with our WACC Kids Check-in Staff, you can type your phone number into one of our computers to check your child in. Printed name tags allow the teachers to know your child’s name, any medical/allergy information that you provide, along with the guardian who checked them in. Guardian receipts are printed with corresponding pager numbers that connect you to your child, to ensure that your child is returned safely with the guardian who checked them in.×
