FRIEND2FRIEND
FAITH, FAMILY & FRIENDS
BUDDY BREAK

Friend2Friend, our special-needs program for children and adolescents, partners with parents to discover and provide the most suitable experience for their child. We offer both inclusion, where the child is connected with a Friend2Friend Pal in a typical classroom, or a self-contained classroom designed for children with special needs. No matter what area best suits each child, they are surrounded and cared for by a staff that is committed to serving them, and to teaching, equipping and empowering them to become fully devoted followers of Christ and vital members of the church community.

FAITH, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS

A small-group ministry serving high-school-age young adults and older (no limit), Faith, Family and Friends is a place where persons of special needs develop their faith, build nurturing relationships, and serve our community. The group meets every month on the 2nd and 4th Friday evenings before the 7:00 p.m. Legacy Campus worship service.

Small-group time includes: a light meal, social time, prayer time, a Bible lesson and music, followed by worship at 7:00 p.m. The goal of the group is to not only provide a venue where adults with special needs feel valued, but build a support group of loving, caring parents and guardians who can share information. A Parent Support Group is also a part of Faith, Family and Friends.

WHO: For Adults with Special Needs—high-school age and older

WHAT: Social time, Bible lesson, prayer time, and a little music, too!

WHEN: 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.; worship follows

WHERE: Chase Oaks Church, in the Legacy Room behind the Coffee Bar in the main building, 281 Legacy Drive, Plano, TX 75023

Mission Statement: The heart of the Chase Oaks Faith, Family and Friends LifeGroup is modeling Christ’s ministry here on earth by bringing purpose to adults with disabilities and their families, freedom to live victoriously, and an opportunity to use their God-given gifts.

Buddy Break is a FREE kids/respite program where kids with special needs (VIP kids) make new friends, play fun games, enjoy crafts, stories, music, activities and more! Siblings have fun, too! Meanwhile, their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities for three hours.
