South Orlando Baptist Church is joined with the Nathaniels Hope Organization.to provide Buddy Break, a community program supporting Families of Children with Special Needs. The parents bring the children to our church one Saturday a month and we entertain the children while the parents get three hours of free respite time. Each Buddy is paired with one VIP child, a child with a special need. This can include physical, cognitive, medically fragile, or chronic and life-threatening illness. This Buddy gives the child one-on-one time and assists them with participating in various activities. We provide music time, bible story time, dog therapy, game room, craft time, and a large gym and playground for the children to play. Buddies are required to attend a training session and must complete a background check which costs $12.50. We welcome anyone to be a Buddy, high school age to seniors. You do not need any experience. These children enjoy doing all things other children do. They just need a little extra attention. Come serve as a Buddy and share God's love with these special families. For more information on the Buddy Break program visit: nathanielshope.org 1 Peter 4:10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God?s grace in its various forms.
