Parables Respite Program


Calling all special needs families!  Wayzata  Community Church offers a Respite Program for Kids with Special Needs. We offer a monthly, four hour window on either a Friday night or Saturday morning/afternoon so that families can have a safe place to drop their children with special needs where they will be cared for by a loving, understanding staff.  Parents can use this time to check some things off the list, enjoy time with others, or just relax!  

This program has been developed and is staffed by Kelly Pederson, Minnetonka special ed teacher/Parables consultant and a variety of other volunteers to meet the needs of those who register.
