This year as part of the celebration and thanksgiving- a liturgical Dance Contest, titled “ Worship and Praises” was highlighted. The Matsudo-MCCIC got the 1st place – dancing the “You raise me up and The prayer”; the Ichikawa-EMC got the second place- dancing the “ I will follow him and Joyful, joyful”; the Toyoshiki-FICT got the 3rd place- dancing, “ Give thanks and How great is our God” and Koiwa-KCFC got the fourth place dancing “ Mercy seat”. This was the first time for them to have done the liturgical dance contest but most of the audience were touched of how beautiful and spirit-filled the dances were.

 

Dance Contest!!
