SIMCHAT OLAM
BASIC Worship Dance Group

Meet at church; contact Laura Salch for dates & times
Would you like to worship the Lord with dance?
Would you like to learn how?
Thjis group is more about meeting the Lord in our personal worship times than about dancing as a group. Some may not even be able to meet on Fridays, and that's all right.
There is however a value in meeting as a group for fellowship, support and ideas. 
All ages and abilities are welcome!
If you need free materials (a binder and a CD), or ifd you would like to meet privcately to get started, please contact Laura Salch.
