- Connect with Jesus
Jesus Prom is an annual celebration held in honor of our special needs community. Over the past three years, volunteers throughout the church have gathered together to show the love of Jesus to those in our community with mental and physical challenges. That gathering is known throughout the city of Bowling Green as Jesus Prom; and it's just that - a prom. It's open to anyone in the special needs community ages 16 and older. Best of all, it's free! All you have to do is sign up through the online link below and then show up at Hillvue dressed in your favorite prom attire at 6:30pm on Friday, February 28th.
So here's what you can expect: When you arrive at Hillvue, using the Nashville Road entrance, you'll be directed to the registration area. At the registration table you'll sign in and have the opportunity to check your coat if you'd like. From there you will take a short limousine ride around the campus to the main entrance for the prom. Once you enter the building you will be greeted and paired up with a volunteer escort who will enjoy the entire evening with you. Next, if you so choose, you can have your hair and makeup done by professionals from the community. This service will not cost you a penny, so feel free to participate in the experience. From there you'll have your picture made by a professional photographer and then head into the area where the party is taking place. As with any great party there will be great food and lots of dancing. Come ready to eat and ready to have an incredible time! Don't forget to sign up through the link below. We hope to see you there!
2014 marks the fourth year of Jesus Prom. Our first Jesus Prom was held in 2011 with the theme "Welcome to the Kingdom." This event had about 150 attendees, and they were given crowns and treated like kings and queens for the day. They were pampered by approximately 300 volunteers who served as escorts, photographers, decorators, beauticians, entertainers, and more.
Since then, Hillvue has embraced this yearly event as a ministry outreach and volunteer opportunity that provides a tangible blessing and shows a glimpse of the love of Jesus to all who attend.

If you plan on or have already signed up to volunteer at Jesus Prom, please be sure you are at the Welcome Center kiosk in the new atrium no later than 6:00 pm. There will be a brief meeting to direct everyone to the appropriate areas in which they registered to serve.
Also, there have been several questions about what volunteers should wear. We're asking that you simply dress nicely to keep the atmosphere as formal and prom-like as possible.
Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve!
