Brook Hills welcomes all children and students — including those who need unique care and attention — to learn about Jesus and enjoy being a part of our faith family.
If your child (birth – high school) has a special need that requires extra care, please tell us more. We want to customize a care plan for them that ensures they are safe and able to learn about Jesus, whatever their need. We put together a Parent Helps Resource to answer a few frequently asked questions. Please complete the form below, and our Special Needs Coordinator will be in touch with you to discuss next steps for your child.
Serve as a Buddy
If you would like to consider serving children and students with special needs, we would love to talk with you about being a Buddy. Buddies are adults who give dedicated care and attention to children and students needing a special friend while at church. There are a couple of specific ways you can serve as a buddy.
Serve Regularly – Most often, this opportunity is for those who are able to serve on a weekly basis. Buddies may begin serving at any point during the year and serve during one of the Sunday morning gatherings or Wednesday evening activities.
Serve Periodically – We also have opportunities to serve special needs children, students, families, and buddies on a periodic or occasional basis during special events and activities. These could include, for example: Faith Family Gatherings, Prayer Gatherings, student camps or conferences, short-term Life Courses (i.e. Griefshare or DivorceCare), Membership Classes, or other family events.
If you have any additional questions or would like to set up a meeting with our Special Needs Coordinator, Dawn Stephens, to learn more about being a Buddy, please let us know — we’d love to meet you!
