Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience centered on God’s love for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. This is a worldwide movement that is changing Valentine’s Day from simply a celebration of love to a celebration of God’s love by honoring people with special needs. It’s a night not only for our guests to shine but for our churches to shine, for volunteers to shine, and most importantly, for Christ to shine!
Night to Shine at NewPointe’s Dover Campus will be held Friday, February 9, 2018, from 6-9 p.m., and there are many volunteer opportunities. As a volunteer, you will play a key role in executing this special night and sharing God’s love with each of our guests. Most volunteer teams begin serving as early as 4 p.m. and end at 10 p.m.
So that we can provide our guests with an amazing experience and so that you will know how to best interact and assist them, mandatory volunteer training is required for all volunteers at one of the following times: Mon, Jan. 29, 6:30-8 p.m., or Thu, Feb 1, 6:30-8 p.m., or Sat, Feb 3, 8:30-10 a.m., or Sun, Feb 4, 1:30-3 p.m.
