Dance Ministry
   The Liturgical Dancers of the Cotton Memorial Presbyterian Church was founded in December 1996. Co-founders Lana DuBose and Amy Douglas say Liturgical Dance is a new and growing concept that has particular appeal for young people. Says Amy Douglas, "Dance is another way to praise God, to reach people where they are and to bring young people to the church. The Bible often refers to dance." Liturgical Dance has also been described as "inspired movement." Douglas states, "What we are doing is interpreting the word...." DuBose and Douglas are helping to start dance ministries at other churches in North Carolina. Cotton Memorial has four dance ministries
