Special Abilities

welcome to Calvary Special Abilities!


Our Special Abilities Wing is open every Sunday at the 9AM and 11AM services. Each week, we do our best to provide one-to-one buddies for each child, our VIPs. All of our buddies are trained, and those over 18 are fingerprinted and background checked. During each service, we do a Bible lesson, watch a video, have integrated worship with other classes, and enjoy outside time on our adapted playground. 

If you are interested in our 9AM or 11AM services, simply show up and we will accommodate your needs to the best of our ability – it is our joy to spend time with your children each week!

Buddy Integration is also an option for your child. If you desire, we will send a buddy with your child to any of the typical Sunday morning classrooms in children’s ministry, middle school ministry, or high school ministry. To connect your child with a buddy, please stop by Room 1300 before the start of the service. 

For more information or questions about Sunday programs, please email stephen.millage@calvarywestlake.org.

*Special Abilities Wing (Room 1300) and buddies are NOT available for Saturday evening service.


Buddy Break is our once-a-month free respite event. We have volunteers sign up and they are paired 1:1 with VIPs. During this event there are games, crafts, toys, and activities to enjoy!


Adventure Weeks (AW) is a Christ-centered summer day camp at Calvary that offers a safe and fun environment for incoming Kindergarteners through incoming 6th graders, including children with special abilities. AW hours are 9AM-4PM.
