WHAT YOU'LL FIND

When you arrive please feel free to park in the Special Friends designated parking spaces which are located by the playground and big blue ramp into the building. The Academy signs in the parking lot will direct you to this designated area. After you park, walk up the blue ramp and we’re located inside on the right in Pod D. Ministry volunteers will be available to welcome and care for your child demonstrating patience, maturity and dedication as they share the love of Jesus through their words and actions. Special Friends offers a large group room (we call it a Pod) for worship, music and movies as well as six classrooms which include a therapy swing, a quiet room and a sensory room.


BEYOND SUNDAY

Parents/Caregivers may be interested in the Parents and Caregivers of Special Needs Small Group which meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30–8 pm at Brookwood. Special Friends Childcare is available on Thursday evenings from 6–8:30 pm .
