GIRLS OF GRACE

 

About Girls of Grace

Who are we?

The Girls of Grace Christian Dance Ministry seeks to, “Offer our bodies as living sacrifices, Holy and pleasing to God! This is our spiritual worship!” ROMANS 12:1


As we dance, we offer our hearts to God in worship, and we humbly pray that we help others around us enter into worship too. We dance, not for ourselves, but only to give God glory, our audience of one!


That is why our hands, our eyes and our movements are lifted up to God! We want to help others experience God’s Presence by drawing their attention up to Him!


And as we dance, the Holy Spirit fills us up, and grows us closer to Jesus!
