What is Night to Shine?
Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. This coming year, on Friday, February 11, 2022, Night to Shine will celebrate its eighth anniversary as thousands from around the world will come together to honor those with disabilities. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Night to Shine 2022 will be a worldwide Shine-Thru Parade and Virtual Celebration. Though this year will look a little different, nothing can keep Faith, Hope and Love from shining as bright as ever!
About Mt. Carmel Church
Upon its organization in 1932, our Church was a community, family oriented group of people. As we continue to reach out in an effort to bring others in, we hope to see continued growth. With God’s help and under the guidance of all of our very able pastors throughout the years, we have been quite busy making improvements to our Church property for the up-building of God’s Kingdom. We rejoice in the progress that has been made and with His help, will continue to work for Him until His return.
Why Night to Shine?
Night to Shine celebrates the uniqueness of each individual guest by providing an unforgettable night where they are welcomed, valued and loved!
“When I was at one of the proms last year, a beautifully dressed queen of the prom was hugging me when the girl’s mom leaned over and whispered with tears in her eyes, ‘My daughter will never get married and she will never have children, but tonight you made her feel like a princess!’”
– Tim Tebow
Sharing God's Love
Night to Shine shares the joy that is found in God’s love for each and every person.
“From the moments the guests of honor reached the front door to the smiles on their faces as they were greeted and walked down the red carpet, it was obvious that the joy of the Lord was in each of their hearts.”
– Peggy Hyland, Volunteer for Christ’s Church at Mason in Ohio
Love & Support
Following Night to Shine, we have been encouraged to see countless churches develop continued programs for people with special needs.
Through Night to Shine, we hope people with special needs realize that their church can be a place where they are loved and feel welcomed.
