According to a recent study 1 in 9 young Americans are neither enrolled in school nor employed. This is concerning when taking into account that high school dropouts are more than 8x as likely to commit crimes and serve prison time. This is why we are committed to reaching at-risk youth.
Another disturbing study indicates that 7 in 10 teens say anxiety and depression are major problems among their peers. Today’s youth face unprecedented challenges. 1 out of 4 people will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. Unfortunately, less than half of those with a mental illness seek help. As a church, we can break the stigma and be the Christ-centered wellness support for those struggling with mental health issues.
Since the infamous ruling of Roe v. Wade in 1973, over 63 million lives have been lost. Some were conceived at less than ideal times while others were aborted for being created differently, having special needs or disabilities. Knowing this, limiting abortion to being a “women’s issue” drastically misrepresents the problem. Moreover, it oppresses the voice of a weaker and silent minority: preborn children. Abortion isn't a women's issue, it''s a human rights issue and for this reason, on this issue, we will not be silent.
Nearly one-billion people around the world live with a disability. Often, not only do the disabled live in despair, but the families of those who have a special need lose hope. Canyon Hills is committed to come alongside families who have special needs to love and support them.
How can you make a difference?
Champions Club is a specially designed developmental area for kids, youth, and adults with special needs. This program meets the developmental needs of those with special needs in four important ways: spiritually, intellectually, mentally and physically. Our focus is on spiritual growth through God’s Word, developing the intellect of each participant through the five senses, educationally through various learning tools, as well as engaging the participant physically during active gross motor fun.
By providing care for children, teens and adults with special needs, we are able to minister to the entire family.
We offer care for children with special needs during our Sunday morning services at Champion’s Club and have developed a program for adults with special needs called Big Champs that also meets every Sunday.
