This Week in Student Ministry: Joy Dance

1 Comment

We’re so excited to announce the Joy Dance again this December!

The Joy Dance is December 17th, 6:00-8:00PM (registration at 5:30).

What is it? This event is a special night of full-scale fun for people with disabilities, ages 12 and up. Formally attired guests will arrive on the red carpet and be escorted by volunteers to a night filled with Joy. There will be dinner, pictures, gifts and an evening of dancing the night away with friends.  Our goal is to bless our community by  providing a joyful evening for our guests.There is no cost to attend.

Our students will be volunteers for the event and will attend in formal attire. Student volunteers will arrive at 5:00PM for prayer and positioning. Specific roles can be requested and our team will try to accommodate those requests! Opportunities are listed below.

Check out the positions below and register to volunteer here.

Prayer Team – Pray for the needs leading up to the event and during the event.

Set Up/ Decorations – Assist the Dance Coordinator in any and all set up and decoration needs.

Tag Team  – As guest pull into the parking lot the tag team will have pre-printed list of small sticky labels that include the names of all the pre-registered guests. As the guest arrives, the tag team finds the appropriate label and places it on the shoulder of the guest while they are in the vehicle waiting in line. This serves two purposes. The first is to announce the guest’s arrival. The second is to assist with registration.
