Our child has a place where he can be himself and where he can feel loved. He is learning about God and creating his faith journey through that. It's such a relief to have Matthew's Ministry here.Montera Jurascheks
Matthew’s Ministry supports, empowers and encourages individuals of all abilities to become deeply committed Christians by knowing, loving and serving God.
At Resurrection Leawood, we have just moved into a new space in Building B that will allow us to better meet the needs of our Matthew's Ministry participants.
Family Night Out offers an evening of respite for parents and caregivers while also offering an evening of fun for those with special needs. Participants are paired with volunteers to enjoy dinner, games, crafts and a movie. All ages are welcome to register as well as siblings of children with special needs.
Family Night Out is offered one Saturday evening each month, 5-8 pm.

We also provide one-on-one, individual care for participants, allowing them to join classroom activities or interact solely with Angel Care Providers.
