Shining Stars began in 2003 as a Sunday School program for children with developmental disabilities. Our desire is to make sure families with children who have special needs feel loved and accepted at church! We now offer 2 programs that take place during weekend service times in affiliation with Freedom Valley Church.

Sunday Morning 

Students of all ages can share in a Bible lesson, craft, games & social interaction while caregivers may attend the 9:15 worship service at Freedom Valley. No pre-registration needed, just come to the desk in the lobby.
Saturday Respite Night
Special needs class held in the therapeutic riding arena offering activities to allow parents & caregivers some free time from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Saturday. Snacks, crafts, games, Bible lesson, and social interaction. Geared toward those 16 and older. Please call ahead so we know how many to plan for. 717-398-8327
