Special Friends Presents The Lion King Jr.

This weekend, Willow Creek's Special Friends ministry will display the incredible talents of those with disabilities in our church through a moving musical production. Our Special Friends will perform The Lion King Jr. during services on July 15/16! "We are giving our Special Friends the center stage this year," says Executive Pastor Heather Larson. "They will perform the show three times, during each weekend service, and give us all an opportunity to experience the performance! Our Special Friends are up for the challenge and now our job is to get as many people as we know to be part of this weekend."

The Lion King Jr. gives kids and teens with disabilities an opportunity to belong in a unique way. "At Willow, we seek to step beyond merely accepting that our friends with disabilities are present. We want them to belong," says Special Friends Pastor Paul Von Tobel. "And to fully belong at Willow means you’re connected with a Christ-centered community, you’re learning and growing spiritually, and you’re using your gifts to serve others."

Join us on July 15/16 and experience this inspirational production ofThe Lion King Jr.!
