Dance Class (activity)
Calling all worshipers of the King to learn and participate in a two part dance class. The first part of the class will cover the basics and move at a slower speed. If you are an advanced dancer, you are welcome to come help demonstrate the steps with me. The second part of the class will build on the first and include some faster songs. Bring water, wear comfortable shoes and clothes and be willing to move! You are welcome to come and observe or sit out for a dance or two if needed.

The Sounding of the Shofar
The Shofar is a biblical instrument, usually made from a ram’s horn, but sometimes from a goat, antelope or kudu. The Shofar is mentioned over 70 times in Scripture. It is used in announcing, warning, celebrations, and the coronation of kings. The ram’s horn represents the ram caught by its horns when Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac. Likewise, it represents Yeshua, our substitute and deliverer, the Horn of our Salvation. The sounding of the shofar calls Yahweh’s people to repentance, faith and devotion.
If you would like to use your shofar as a tool of worship during this feast, it will be helpful to come to this training session! Join us as we learn about the basics of the shofar, various calls and their functions, and shofar protocol. Bring your shofars along!
Gary and Shirley Dose have been married for 31 years and have been Torah pursuant for the last 10. They along with their children Shawna and Garrett operate a 4th generation family farm in western IA. Gary is a “jack of many trades but master of none” and is currently on a quest to return to the basics of life and how to operate a farm in a Torah friendly manner apart from the servitude of debt, GMO’s and employment. Shirley is an avid student of Torah and homemaker, gardener and Gary’s partner. She is the main hub for the small prison ministry the Dose’s operate. The Doses are part of a home fellowship group and are thankful to have local like-minded believers.
The Rehearsal desires to provide messages that encourage and exhort the body to a greater relationship with our Heavenly Father. While we believe that all of the selected speakers also share this goal, we do realize that not everyone has the same understanding of the scriptures. The messages may not reflect the exact beliefs held by the board but may provide an opportunity for study and introspection. We ask that grace and mercy rule our conversations and questions while discussing various topics and ideas that may or may not agree with your understanding.
