Special Friends presents Mary Poppins Jr.
Willow Creek's Special Friends ministry is proud to present Mary Poppins Jr. this weekend, July 21/22, as part of weekend services. The heart of Special Friends is to unleash the God-given abilities of those with special needs—and this musical performance will put their remarkable talents on display.
More than 40 kids with special needs have been paired with mentors who help them learn lines and choreography. They have been preparing since February and are excited and ready to welcome you to a world where kite flying and spoonfuls of sugar open up endless possibilities!
"We invite you not only to enjoy the incredible performance, but also to jump in and experience this beautiful ministry," says Special Friends Director Jenni Von Tobel. "Special Friends is a place where kids, teens, and adults with disabilities discover they are made for belonging, are worthy to learn, and are created for community. Explore the Main Lobby; meet our incredible kids, teens, and adults; and hear firsthand how families and volunteers have seen God at work through Special Friends!"
The Main Lobby will feature pictures and stories of our Special Friends as well as kids activities, with our sensory-friendly, therapeutic equipment upstairs for all to experience. In addition, you can learn about weekly programs, play with therapy dogs, find support for families and caregivers, and discover ways you can play a part.
Gather family and friends and come celebrate our Special Friends this weekend at a heartwarming and inspiring musical performance!
