Special needs ministry

VCC has a burden to provide care for children with varied special needs as well as allow their parents to experience the church while their kids are taken care of by trained and experienced volunteers.  These volunteers work along side the child in their classroom of same age peers.  To this end, we have also created a sensory break room designed by Occupational Therapists that parents and staff may utilize as necessary when a child needs a break from the larger group.   Our ability to resource this ministry is limited but we are continuing to expand and provide care for more and more families.  If you are interested in this ministry, or have questions before visiting, please contact our Special Needs Coordinator Victorie Steed at vccaugustaspecialneeds@gmail.com.

Victorie has been a part of VCC since 2012 and has been serving with the children’s church special needs team since 2014.  She has a bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Services from Auburn University and a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  She is a registered and licensed pediatric occupational therapist with extensive knowledge and experience related to sensory processing needs.  Her professional background combined with her passion for helping others prove useful as the VCC Special Needs Coordinator.  Outside of work and church, Victorie spends her time at home with her husband and two dogs.  Her hobbies include photography, music, and home DIY projects.

Our Community

At VCC, we believe that church is not a function: it is a family. Our religion is only as alive as we are, the people that pursue it. So, rather than acting as an organization, we want to act as an organism. We have no time for casual contacts and meaningless formalities. We are a fellowship on an adventure towards the stuff of God. Church means worshipping God together, studying the Bible together, fixing our cars together, hiking together, eating together, playing together, praying together... enjoying the warmth of the Holy Spirit in all parts of our lives together, not just in appointed meeting times.
