Please bring the outfits you will be using for the benefit to rehearsal tomorrow! We will be wearing a white sleeved top and a white skirt for Revelation Song and a white top and black pants for Did you feel the mountains tremble? song. If you do not have a skirt, we will make sure you have one by the end of the evening! Please be prompt at 7 p.m.!
We have an additional practice for the fundraiser on Tuesday, September 2 at 7p.m. at Faith Covenant in Burnsville.
Even if your child is not dancing, everyone is invited to attend the fundraiser for Katie Stynsberg, who will be working against trafficking in Nepal. The event is Friday, September 5 from 7-9 p.m. at the Apple Valley Senior Center (14601 Hayes Rd). In addition to the talent show there will be a silent auction and desserts for sale. Hope to see you there!
We have been invited to dance at a fundraiser for a missionary friend, who is going to Nepal. It will take place Sept. 5th at 7pm. We have scheduled a practice Tuesday, Aug. 26th at Faith Covenant from 7-8pm for all who can join us to pray and listen to the Holy Spirit, and dance.

We don’t have all the details yet, but Jolene and Cheryl will be continuing Freedom To Dance. We will be working out the details this month and hope to have a plan in place shortly to communicate to you!
Praise God that it will continue!
I’m so thankful to have been blessed to be a part of Freedom To Dance for over 12 years. It’s been such a joy to get to know so many kids, teens, and adults, but even more so, it’s put a smile on my face watching everyone step out to dance for the Lord. I’ve also loved seeing a new-found confidence has grown within so many. I know that He has been so happy with each and every one who has set aside themselves and danced for Him, sacrificing their time and finances. I’ve loved so many aspects of the ministry, that it has been hard to let it go, but after all these years of knowing that the Lord has wanted me a part of this ministry, I now believe the Lord is leading me in another direction for this new chapter of my life. So, the 2013-2014 season, was my last serving in Freedom To Dance. I will now be moving into Breakthrough Ministries where I will be helping with their media relations and with the native community of Little Earth, a people-group who have touched my heart for the last decade as I’ve done mission work in northern Canada on reserves working with the First Nations. I’m excited for this new opportunity.
I will miss each and every one of you, but perhaps I’ll see you at Breakthrough Church serving on Sundays or Tuesdays. :)
If you know of anyone who would like to step up and help to continue to run Freedom To Dance, please have them contact myself and/or Jolene. email@example.com.
At this time, no one has officially stepped up to continue the ministry. Please pray about this, that the Lord would raise up leaders to continue it.
Sending you my love!
All Freedom To Dance members and families are invited!
We will be leading worship by dancing during the service.

We are quickly approaching the end of our 2013-2014 season! It’s been a wonderful year worshiping the Lord through dance. It’s been a blessing to have you as part of the team. We will be having some changes to our last practice night:
May 6 – Normal practice times at Faith in the basement location
May 13 – Last night of practice & PARTY. NEW LOCATION: We will be meeting in an upstairs room because the lower room will be taken. Enter through the doors on the south, top entrance. Big room will be on your left.
PARTY! This will also be our year-end party, so we’ll be celebrating with some snacks and some games (as well as running through our Breakthrough songs one last time.) Parents and other family members are invited. We ask that you bring some sort of snack to share to this party… fruit, veggies/dip, rice crispy bars, jello squares, chip/dip…. anything your dancer would love to share with everyone; however, you won’t need to bring that many. Each dance class will have their own separate party at their normal scheduled times.
May 18 – Last Breakthrough night. See previous post for details.
May 20 – No practice throughout the summer, or if we schedule a few, random practices for Breakthrough events, they will be posted.
