Legacy Christian Church was the place to be on March 16. Jesus Prom, an event for members of the special needs community, brought in over 150 guests and 300 volunteers.

This was the largest Jesus Prom that the community has ever seen.

As the guests made their way down the boardwalk, they were met with an array of paparazzi and volunteers cheering them along. Inside, the guests were able to eat, dance, and play carnival-like games for the entire night. A DJ kept the night alive with popular songs, and Chick-Fil-A donated the dinner for the event.

Volunteers were there to help the night run as smoothly as possible. Starr’s Mill English teacher Ashley Collins was one of the many volunteers that night. “It’s so much fun to see all of the guests dancing and just enjoying themselves,” Collins said.

Next year, Legacy Christian Church hopes to have another Jesus Prom with an even larger number of attendees and volunteers. “I think the special needs community has so much to give,” Collins said. “When you volunteer for things like this, you think that you are giving and serving, but you really end up growing because of it.”
