Liturgical Dance

"Let them praise his name with dancing!" Psalms 149:3

"Praise him with timbrel and dance" Psalm 150:4

The Liturgical Dance Ministry, "In Motion With Praise" was established the summer of 2003 with the goal of providing an "outreach" to anyone interested in liturgical dance.

In a Christian environment, dance steps and movements are learned that interpret Scripture, hymns, anthems or pre-recorded music. Using our God-given talents, we strive to reach a stronger sense of self-awareness, confidence and purpose as we become aware of how God is using us to praise Him in worship through dance.

Our motto is "IN MOTION WITH GUIDANCE* (and praise!) (*God, U and I Dance!).

"In Motion with Praise" is for all interested youth and adults.

"Children In Motion With Praise" is for children who are ages 6 and older.

Rehearsals are not ongoing, but are scheduled as needed to prepare specific choreography for serving in worship. Rehearsals are usually Sunday afternoons and/or Wednesday evenings, but are scheduled with flexibility to fit the dancers' schedules.

We are ALWAYS interested in adding new members!!!

You need not be accomplished .... you just need a desire to serve and praise God through the art of dance.
