Friendship Community 41st Anniversary Event!
We could not have asked for a more inspiring and moving 41st Anniversary Event. Tears of joy streamed down our faces as Resident Terri McKonly accepted the prestigious Haverstick Award and our hearts soared to watch the Creative Movement team dance to I Can Only Imagine and How Beautiful. A precious video featuring 2013 events reminded us of those Individuals to whom we both bade farewell and welcomed with open arms.
As our featured speaker, Emily Colson, shared humorous anecdotes about her life with Max, she also exhorted all of us to realize how big our God really is. Emily knows the daily struggles families of Individuals with disabilities face. But as Emily so eloquently shared, “The Holy Spirit speaks Max’s language. I realized that Max was impacting the world with capabilities not despite of his disability, but because of it. We cannot set limits on people, because when we do, we set limits on God.”
We are deeply grateful to those businesses and individuals that sponsored this event and thank you to all those who attended and contributed; over $30,000 was raised to support the ministry of Friendship Community.
