Special Place for Special Kids

Raising a special needs child who struggles in mainstream society can sometimes be a lonely journey for families. In the United States today, less than 5% of churches have any type of ministry for families caring for these special kids. But right here in Bakersfield, the newly opened Champions Club at Canyon Hills Church is the first standalone worship center of its kind in the United States, designed just for children with special needs and intended to encourage these uniquely-abled families to feel welcome at church.

The Champions Club is filled with color and tactile delights, boasting more than 3,200 sq ft with four specially designed rooms, the Sensory Room, Educational/Game Room, Play Room, and Worship Room, staffed with volunteers trained in CPR and various behavioral teachings. “We welcome families in our community to enjoy this unique, fun and specialized environment, where kids with special needs are celebrated!” said Pastor Robin Robinson. The center is on the campus of Canyon Hills Church at 7001 Auburn Street, Bakersfield. For more information, contact Pastor Robinson at 661-871-1150.
