SMALL GROUP LEADERS WANTED: Starting March 7, we will return to our small group format, so are asking for parents willing to partner and work with a small group at 6:15pm for 15 minutes each week. Small group leaders will be given instructions and a question to ask the group. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve alongside your dancer. You may choose to partner with another parent to alternate. Please reply if you are interested.
CLEANUP: We ask that all dancers respect this new space and make sure that the area is cleaned up when we leave the facility each night.
NEXT SEASON: Good Shepherd is also a full-time Christian school, so they offer basketball during the winter season. Basketball obviously take presidence over our dance ministry and so will be using the gym nightly. We need to continue in prayer to see where God would have us be for next season. Thank you for joining us in prayer for doors to be open.
We are so thankful that Good Shepherd has lovingly opened its doors to our ministry. This truly shows the humble and serving heart of Christ. Thanks to them and thanks to God!! www.goodshep.com
