Evening Stars

NAME:  Evening Stars
DESCRIPTION:  Special Needs Ministry to Children
The Evening Stars Respite Program is designed to give a period of break/or relief for caregivers of special needs children. First Baptist Church of Colleyville established Evening Stars to provide free monthly respite for families who have special needs children in our community.
To Participate In Evening Stars: Applications can be obtained by calling FBCC Children's Department at 817.281.4158. Upon receipt of completed forms, Evening Stars will contact you to further discuss the needs of your child(ren). If Evening Stars is able to meet your child's needs, reservations will be required 2 weeks in advance for each monthly respite night.
Who Can Attend?
Children with special needs, who do not require constant nursing care, and siblings ages 0 until their 12th birthday may attend the Evening Stars Respite Program. The Respite Program is the 4th Friday of the month from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. (some months may vary)
To Volunteer At EVENING STARS:
Individuals with and without medical backgrounds can help with this ministry. There are many areas in which to volunteer such as special needs children childcare, sibling childcare, registration, photography, crafts, music, and much more. Volunteer as often as you wish --adult groups & Bible Study classes are encouraged to sponsor one night twice a year.
