3. His Handmaids Accepting New Handmaids-in-Waiting – Richmond – Registration Deadline Is September 22

Emmanuel Episcopal Church
Richmond, Virginia

Rehearsals begin September 7, 2018, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and are held every other Saturday throughout the school year (some variation occurs). Registration deadline is September 22, 2018. Suggested donation to help defray costs: $150/child; $100/additional child in same family. If there are more than two children from the same family, nothing is asked for the additional children. However, donations are not a determining factor in participation.

His Handmaids is a liturgical worship troupe for girls ages seven and older. Dance experience is not necessary; knowing Jesus is. His Handmaids are taught to be worship leaders using reverent movement and dance to interpret classic Christian songs and hymns.

New girls participate in Handmaids-in-Waiting for their first year in the troupe. During that time they learn the basics and disciplines of being a Handmaid, as well as some songs in the repertoire and the foundations for dance in worship. Though new girls do not lead worship during this first year, they are encouraged to travel with the troupe to as many worship services as possible in order to observe firsthand the training and flexibility required.
