Encompass is a ministry for individuals with special needs and for their families.

Anchor Watch is the name of our respite care. We hope that Lighthouse Church will become a beacon of hope for these families in our church and community. The parents and/or caregivers of loved ones with special needs (Buddies) have an opportunity to bring both their loved one and his/her siblings to our church for an evening. We team up a volunteer with each Buddy, feed all of them pizza for dinner (yes, siblings too), have a brief devotion/prayer, and then encourage them to explore several types of rooms in the building (including a Quiet Room for people who are sensitive to sight and sound). There is no cost for respite care; nursery is provided for children up to three years old, ages four and up will join in the activities. For more call 913-294-2400.
