Night to Shine Prom

Time to Shine the Light 
Dear Discovery Friends and Family,

We are focusing on shining in darkness unlike any other time in our history. We are just weeks away from our huge community outreach called Night to Shine. Night to Shine is a prom event for students with special needs held on Friday, Feb 12th and sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. To get an understanding of just how big and special this night is going to be see the highlights from last year

Now, here is the huge challenge/opportunity. We are anticipating between 75 and 100 honored guests in attendance. With a 2:1 ratio of volunteers to special guests, that requires 150 to 200 people to step up and serve. In addition, we will have 75 to 100 parents and caregivers enjoying time in our respite areas. We need people like you to step forward. I want to encourage you to sign-up today to help by clicking here.

Thanks for signing up! In addition to Night to Shine, we are kicking off our growth track this week with Vision 101. I am asking that our whole community walk through the growth track. Then the week of fasting and prayer begins January 18th and concludes with a worship night and soup fest style potluck. It's going to be a great kickoff in January for a year to Shine!

I love you and it such a privilege to serve as your pastor!

Week of Prayer & Fasting


Week of Prayer and Fasting

As the new year begins, we're asking everyone who is part of Discovery to fast in some way. Fasting is a spiritual discipline that Jesus modeled for us in the Bible. What is a fast? How do I fast? Here's the info.
