Together with our dedicated, compassionate volunteers, Rays of Light creates a unique evening for children with special needs and their siblings on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Fridays of every month (excluding January and July) from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on the campus of Lovers Lane United Methodist Church, on the campus of White Rock United Methodist on the 1st Friday, and on the campus of Christ Foundry United Methodist Mission on the 3rd Friday for Spanish-speaking families. Night Lights gives the parents the opportunity to have four free hours and the children get four hours of socialization and interaction with their volunteers and peers, through structured, fun and educational activities.
Numerous activities are offered over the course of the evening (a large gym to run and basketball to play; computer lab with educational software; a special craft in the arts and crafts room; areas for blowing bubbles, reading books and enjoying music; movie viewing; a recreation room with an Xbox; a different live entertainment each month (petting zoo, face painter, juggler, etc.); two playgrounds and visits from Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs). Two nurses and an off-duty police officer are hired for each event to keep the children and volunteers safe. The parents arrive for pick up by 10:00 p.m., energized, to happy kids.
