Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp. For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble victory. Psalm 149:3-4
"The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is express the same delight in God which made David dance." C.S. Lewis
Dance is a unique ministry, sharing the gospel through various forms of visual interpretation including sign language, step, and mime.
Psalm 150 reminds us to praise the Lord. “Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbral and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Here at HRUMC, the liturgical dancers strive to do just that – “praise his name with dancing” (Psalm 149). Liturgical dance is a type of movement set to praise and worship music periodically incorporated into our church’s worship service to facilitate a deeper spiritual experience.
Liturgical dance is open to all beginning with those in second grade. Rehearsals will begin on Monday, September 9th and are held from 5:30-6:30 P.M. in the church’s sanctuary. Rehearsals continue Mondays through June.
