"As adults, men and women with physical and intellectual disabilities have few opportunities to socialize and be celebrated. The Through the Roof Ministries provides opportunities for these individuals to meet, develop lasting friendships, lead and participate in worship together, participate in community service projects and know that they are valued, loved and belong in our community, said the church in a news release. The Enchanted Evening dinner dance is a special celebration of this group of very special guests, organized and implemented by 100 volunteers from our church and community."

The special guests were also presented with a sash declaring them "The Apple of God's Eye."
