Special Gathering of
North Brevard, Florida

in Titusville and Cocoa

A ministry dedicated to sharing the good news within the mentally challenged community in Brevard County.



The oldest program in The Special Gathering family, Cocoa is also one of our larger chapels in the growing ministry fellowship. The sister program in Titusville, Florida, has also been effective in drawing many of the mentally challenged population living in the community into its fellowship. Both programs meet on Sunday, allowing a respite time for families to be able to attend the worship services of their choice.

Many local churches from different denomination join to sponsor the program. Through the ministry of The Special Gathering members in these congregations, Brevard County parishioners are learning to appreciate the unique gifts that these adults bring to the Church. The Special Gathering choir is invited to sing in the local churches. Members may even share the testimony of what Christ has done in their lives. Visitors from many places have come to share in the unique worship experience they find at The Special Gathering.

The Cocoa program meets each Sunday at 10 a.m. at 140 Magnolia Ave., in the chapel of Merritt Island 1st Baptist Church.

Titusville meets 3 p.m. at 1355 Highway 50 in the chapel of Indian River City United Methodist Church.
