    Information

    Are you looking for a way to help your community? Sunnybrook Community Church is looking for volunteers to join their Unlimited program!

    Unlimited volunteers will be paired with a special needs buddy during small group time and worship/story time at Sunnybrook Community Church and provide any help or additional assistance the buddy may need. Sometimes this looks like helping them as they transition from room to room, perhaps providing a set of headphones if the music is too loud or providing companionship while the buddy utilizes one of our sensory rooms.

    Unlimited is great for students, considering education for their major, who would like to get some hands-on experience.

    For more information or to become a volunteer, contact Sarah Mitchell- Unlimited Ministry Coordinator at (712) 509-4411
