What is Miracle 139
Our name, Miracle 139, comes from Psalm 139:14 which says, "Body and soul, I am marvelously made!" We know each person - each child - is a miraculous gift from God without blemish or mistake. Our ministry embraces the specific gifts and challenges that children with disabilities have. We know God had a special love for children (Matthew 19:14) and for persons with special needs (Luke 14:13-14) so we desire to love these children as Christ loves them!
We also believe every child has the ability to learn about the hope and love we have in Jesus Christ! Our specialized classrooms on Sunday mornings strive to teach each child in a way that accesses their unique learning strengths. Some children are auditory learnings, some are visual learners and some are kinesthetic learners, so we incorporate each of these modalities into our Bible teaching and corresponding activities. With advance notice, we can also provide buddy support for children who prefer to be included with their peers in the 'regular' Rock Kids classrooms. Email zvenpyr139+fqebpx+pbz for more information!
We desire that every family have the opportunity to attend service uninterrupted. With our team of trained volunteers in combination with a structured environment, behavioral supports and sensory opportunities, we strive to provide our children with the strategies they need to be successful in the classroom. Not to mention, for them to have some fun and learn about Jesus! (Of course, safety is our primary concern, so parents may be paged if necessary.)
Our incredible team of volunteers includes special education teachers, psychologists, behavioral specialists, physcial therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, a music therapist, nurses and even a physician. Some of our most amazing volunteers are those who have some in with no prior experience but have a heart to love our children and their families. All volunteers within Rock Kids classrooms are screened, interviewed and background checked. So, needless to say, your child is in excellent hands!
Beyond Sunday Mornings
Our ministry for children with special needs and their families goes beyond our Sunday morning teaching. In addition, we have:
- Parent Bible Study - every other Thursday evening with childcare provided
- Community outreach events (i.e. Day at the Beach, Family Fun Day, etc.)
- Consultation and training for other churches starting special needs ministries
- Volunteer training events
We pray that you include our ministry in your prayers and if God puts it on your heart, contact us about getting involved!!
This ministry operates out of Point Loma and is open to all of San Diego
