Night to Shine

Loving those in our community with special needs.

Stories

From a Volunteer

“Karaoke was an amazing time. Watching the joy on their faces as they came up one by one to show off different personalities, gifts, and just excitement for life was a beautiful sight. I was sorta thrown on the spot into singing “Let it Go” with one gorgeous girl who seemed a bit anxious, (fair enough, girl, that’s a hard song!) but it was so much fun. Later a lady approached me and said she’d never seen that girl open up like that before and that it was amazing to see her standing up there mouthing the words with me. I feel so honored to have been able to be there, loving on our community last night.”

From a Parent

“As the father of a very special young man, I would like to offer a huge thank you to Journey Community Church. This amazing group of God loving volunteers hosted this community's Night to Shine for special needs Kings and Queens. I cannot put into words what this night meant to our family and the other families for which you stepped up and served in the name of our Great Lord. For one night you made our special children feel as special as they really are. I also would like to thank you for caring for and spoiling us parents as well. It was an awesome night and I am sure Tim Tebow thanks you for your service and support. Thanks again and God bless you all.”

From a Caregiver

“My brother attended the Night to Shine last night, and I just wanted you all to know how much we appreciate everything you did. Wanted you to definitely let the congregation know how meaningful that was for everybody there and how much God’s love was shown through your actions. Thank you so very much, it was a night that we all will totally remember for a lifetime. You just really have no idea. Thank you.”
