Joy Ministry Helps All Kids Participate in Sunday School

Through Joy Ministry, Covenant matches a volunteer “buddy” with a special needs child to make it possible for the child to attend and participate more fully in Sunday school.

The goal of Joy Ministry is help all Covenant families to feel truly welcome on our campus. Many families with special needs children struggle to attend church as a family. Parents often go separate ways on Sunday morning. One may attend a service or class while the other provides adequate care for their child. Without additional assistance in the Sunday school setting, our special needs children are missing out on the chance to learn about God’s love, make lasting friendships and be part of the church community.

We need you! Volunteer “buddies” are needed to work with these children one-on-one to facilitate their inclusion.

  • Volunteers are needed on Sunday morning, for both the 9:30 & 11:00 worship hours.
  • Support and training is provided.
  • All commitment levels are welcome. We will work with your schedule and availability.
  • Help us open our doors to the Covenant community and to all of Austin.

 Do you have a special need in your family that this ministry might touch? Please let us know. Contact: Cindy Young at or (512) 809-9786.
