Our final practice is today Tuesday, Dec 6, for our Christmas dances! We are requesting that the Joy Dancers stay later (6:45 pm) and the Glory Dancers come earlier (7:15 pm), so we have an opportunity to put all the parts for “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” together!
We realize this is a late notice, so please do the best you can to rearrange your schedules!
Thanks so much! To God be all the glory!
