What is Joy Prom?

Joy Prom was inspired by the message of Jesus Christ in Luke 14:12-14 ~ “Then He also said to him who invited him, “when you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your brothers, your relatives, nor your neighbors, lest they invite you back, and you be repaid.  But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind.  And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”


Joy Prom will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2022 at Walnut Grove High School ~ 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.

  • There is a step down/quieter area available for our sensitive guests!
  • Our guests are greeted at the door by our paparazzi.
  • Our guests are escorted to dinner, photography and the ball by one of our volunteers.
  • Every guest receives a prom favor.

  • Corsages and boutonnieres are provided.
  • Hospitality suite is provided for care givers.


We have an assortment of formal wear that has been donated that we will fit and alter just for you.  If you have gotten a dress/suit from us in the past and would like a different one, that’s fine too.  Bring the old one back and exchange it.  Joy Prom fittings are held in the front of Building 300 (Student Center) by appointment.  Fitting dates/times will be offered on your registration form.


Remember, we MUST have a registration form for EACH guest.  Invitations (registration forms) are sent to all who participated in previous years.  Contact Summit Church if you have never attended and would like to or if you know somone who would be interested in attending.  A link to the printable invitation is below.  You may RSVP for Joy Prom online at thejoyprom@hotmail.com or by completing a form and returning it to The Summit Church.
