SPEC is a religious program for cognitively impaired adults and children.

We meet Wednesdays, September through May; 

from 6:30 to 8:00pm in the Believers Together Community Center.

We welcome all volunteers!  You are most welcome

to help teach, assist with students, share your talents and pray for us. 


Due to the COVID19 Pandemic, Special Persons Encounter Christ will be held in an online format until it is safe to return to our normal face-to-face environment.   If you are inquiring about SPEC for an individual with a diagnosed intellectual disability or if you would like more information, please contact:
