By volunteering for the Special Egg Event on April 8th, you make it possible for children with special needs and their families to enjoy a magical day. Your sacrifice of time and effort, no matter what role, is vital to this event. Without volunteers like you the Special Egg Event would not be possible.
Nothing says thank you like PANCAKES.
We would like to invite you to join us, Sunday, April 9th, for Special Egg Volunteer Appreciation Sunday at Journey Church. We are asking all of our volunteers to wear their Special Egg volunteer t-shirt. From 8:30-9:45 am we’ll provide a FREE all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast for all volunteers. And then join us for our morning service starting at 10 am. During the service, you’ll get to hear from families who brought their children to our event and the impact you have made, you’ll see the highlights video, and be recognized for your contribution. We hope you will join us!
