Special needs ministry Tyler TX


to JOY

We exist to walk alongside individuals with special needs and their families. We celebrate the unity and diversity of the Kingdom of God by being and making disciples of Jesus as a part of the body of Christ while meeting the needs of a unique part of it.

Checking in and out at JOY is easy.


Our greeters will show you to our computers where you will check your kids in when you arrive.

Save the label.

The computerized check-in system will print an identification label for your children with a corresponding label for the parent with a matching number.

Pick Up.

Pick up your kids at the JOY room at each campus. For the safety of our families, you will need the label to pick up your child from their class.

JOY Ministries.

Joy Ministries of Grace Community Church is a ministry for individuals with special needs and their families. Our Sunday morning programming includes a time for praise and worship with the congregation, Bible lessons, arts and crafts, and fellowship back in the JOY room.

 We believe everyone is made in the image of God, and our church family is made of many parts. We believe it is a JOY and privilege to celebrate and accommodate those with different abilities as they learn about God and his great love for them.  Special Needs includes any individual with medical, physical, mental, and/or emotional needs. It is not hindered to Care is provided based on the specific needs and cognitive level of each individual. Our heart is to minister to the individual with special needs while their families have an opportunity to grow in their relationship with God.
