One way in which Sunnybrook works to be the hands and feet of Christ is by extending care to others in their time of need.

Sunnybrook Care takes place through a variety of means and forms including one-on-one relationships through counseling, visitations and more.   

crisis care

If you've experienced a death in your family, lost a job, or something has happened that turned your world upside down, we are here to help. 

For immediate assistance, please call 712-276-5814 x 2.  For after hours support, please follow the answering service prompts.

hospital visitations

If you have an unexpected or planned hospitalization and would like someone from Sunnybrook's Care Ministry team to support you, please complete the care request form. 



Sometimes it can be helpful to talk with a pastor about spiritual questions, struggles in life, marriage matters, parenting challenges, grief/loss experiences, relationship issues.  We can provide a pastoral response to your situation and/or referrals to local licensed Christian counselors for ongoing counseling.  

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 712-276-5814 x28 to speak with BJ Van Kalsbeek or email him at

auditorium hosts

We know that coming to a large church for the first time can be intimidating.  At Sunnybrook we have a group of people just to help you feel at home.  Auditorium Hosts wearing a blue lanyard are available especially for you to help answer questions, provide prayer support, and an open heart.  Hosts are found in the seating areas of the sanctuary before, during and after each service.
