Friendship Festival 2019 – Heartland

Event Information

8:30 am - 1:30 pm
Orange City Christian School

Treasured logoWe are excited to host the first Heartland Friendship Festival on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at Orange City Christian School! Friendship Festival is day of fun games and activities to celebrate friendships between students of all abilities. This event is an opportunity for students with disabilities in grades K-8 at local All Belong Member Schools to have a meaningful, shared experience with friends outside of the school building.

The 2019 theme is “Treasured”, taken from Deuteronomy 7:6, “The Lord your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.” This verse reminds us that each student is treasured in the eyes of our Savior—we look forward to celebrating each student on this fun day!

Local Christian schools are excited about this opportunity to come together and celebrate friendships. Students, school staff, parents, and community members have already volunteered to help make this day memorable for all participants, but we welcome additional volunteers and sponsors.
