Prom with a Purpose

1findlayprom

Check out the Findlay Area Christian Prom for an alternative to traditional prom. The prom is an affair to remember, an evening where teenagers – both homeschooled and those who attend area schools – can have fun in a relaxed environment that supports a more conservative lifestyle.

“The kids can be themselves,” said Lisa Towell, who began the prom in 2012 through Spotless Ministries. “It gives them an opportunity to be who they are in an environment that doesn’t promote activities that aren’t part of God’s plan for us.”

Girls are encouraged to dress modestly, with minimal cleavage and dresses that reach the knee. Boys should wear nice dress clothes. The music will be upbeat pop and rock music, with some contemporary Christian sprinkled in. Dancing and interaction should be appropriate. Rather than bring dates – which might feed into peer pressure – attendees may bring guests.

“You can come with your friends, you can come alone,” said organizer Cody Towell, Lisa’s son, who said 60 teens attended last year. “We want to be one body in Christ.”

For high school-aged teenagers, 7 to11 p.m. Friday, April 29,
$10 at the door, at The Lighthouse, 10055 US 224 West.
Catering by Chipotle and Cakes for Heavens Sake.
