The Special Needs Ministry at Henderson Hills nurtures and supports people of all ages with special needs by encouraging them in the gospel, teaching them to worship God, and loving them unconditionally. 


Joyful Sound Choir

The Joyful Sound Choir meets on Wednesdays in the Green Room, 4:45-6 pm, for a wonderful time of singing and percussion for teens and adults with special needs. Not only do they have a wonderful time in worship and community each week, but also lead worship at HHBC twice a year and have a talent show at the end of the choir season.

Lead by Terri Johnson and Randy Lackey
For more information, contact Carrie Brooke.


Adult Community Groups

Each Sunday, Bible study and a time of praise are offered for 16 years and older. The Word of God is taught to individuals at an appropriate level of understanding. 

Sunday Morning Adult Community Groups - 9 am

Adults - John & Jennifer Johnson, Room W-102
Young Adults (16-25) - Sue Gill, Room W-100


Hillside Big Kids K-5th Grade

We have volunteer "buddies" to assist children with special needs in their age appropriate Sunday morning classrooms with their peers at 9 and 10:30 am. Upon arriving at the classroom, let the teacher know you would like your child to be paired with a "buddy."



In addition to Community Groups and Choir, our Special Needs Ministry holds a variety of events. Exclusive to our ministry are the Fall Party, Christmas Party, and Camp Perfect Wings. We also collaborate with other ministries for our special needs children and students to be able to participate in events such as VBS. If you are interested in volunteering for any of these events, contact Carrie Brooke.


Safety and Security

Our goal is to ensure, to the best of our ability, the safety, and security of our church members. We take every precaution possible and adhere to a three-fold approach to safety:(1) worker training and screening, (2) on-site security personnel, and (3) secure child check-in system.  Furthermore, classroom doors have windows so that activities are visible from the hallways and video monitors observe activities around entrances and hallways.

Recognizing and Reporting (RR) training is a mandatory qualification for every person working in our Special Needs Ministry at Henderson Hills.

Early childhood classrooms are staffed with two people at all times and are regularly monitored by supervisory staff. Before working in our Special Needs Ministry, each volunteer leader and paid staff member must undergo a background check, interview, and reference check and complete a Recognizing and Reporting training session.
