Family Church at White Hall will host the Night to Shine Prom for People with Special Needs from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7. The event is for participants ages 14 and older.


Family Church recently announced that it would serve as one of nearly 800 churches around the world already registered to host Night to Shine 2020, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.


This event will be hosted through local churches across the globe simultaneously Feb. 7, according to a news release.


“Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older,” according to a spokesman. “Family Church is excited to be a part of this worldwide movement that is uniting churches of different denominations all over the world with the common goal of celebrating people with special needs.”


Each participant will enter the complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a welcome from the crowd and paparazzi, the spokesman said.


“Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, shoe shining areas, limousine rides, corsages and boutonnieres, a catered dinner, karaoke, prom favors, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned king or queen of the prom.”


Tim Tebow is founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation.


“It is awe inspiring to see how God is using the Church globally to stand up and advocate for people with special needs,” Tebow said in the news release. “I truly believe that the world is coming together through Night to Shine to celebrate the love that God has for us! Every town, every village, every state, every country needs a Night to Shine for their special needs community – a chance to be a part of something significant and life-changing…and to be blessed in the process.”


As sponsor of the prom, the foundation will provide each host church with the official planning manual, personalized guidance and support from a foundation staff member and access to free and discounted resources that will assist them in creating the prom for their guests.


“The foundation also has committed nearly $3.5 million in financial support to hundreds of churches needing assistance in hosting the event,” according to the release.
