Rocky Mount

Englewood Baptist Church is proud to be an official host churches in 2018. The Night to Shine prom is scheduled for Friday, February 9, 2018, 6-9pm, at 1350 S Winstead Avenue, Rocky Mount NC.

When asked why Englewood Baptist Church chose to host a Night to Shine event, Senior Pastor Michael Cloer said:

“We wanted host a Night to Shine for our region of the state because we know that even while God loves all people, the Bible is replete with examples of His special love and concern for those with special needs. We want to be His heart, His hands, His face to them on their special night. We want them and their families to know how much He, and we, love them.”

This is the church’s first time hosting this event. For anyone wishing to donate to support of this event, donations may be made directly to Englewood Baptist Church, with a designation for Night to Shine.

According to the church’s organizer, Kathleen French:

“We are working to get local businesses involved for catering, corsages, boutonnieres, limo rides, and funds for the tiaras and crowns. At the end of the night, each participant is crowned King or Queen of the night.”
