The St. Albans Gospel Assembly, Inc. Dance Ministry better know as SAGA3 was formed in January 2008 under the leadership of Senior Pastors Apostle Everett C. Newsome, Jr. and Co-Pastor Apostle Marjorie Newsome. Directed by Pastor Angie Garrick and Sis Yvette Richardson, SAGA3 Dance Ministry is comprised of female members between the ages of 5 and 20. SAGA3 allows girls and young ladies the opportunity to express their love for Christ and to translate the salvation message of Jesus through the form of liturgical dance.
SAGA3 has danced for special church activities such as Women’s Day, Christmas programs, Youth Sunday Services, Youth Conferences and Watch Night Services. SAGA3 has developed a standard in dance ministry that incorporates biblical themes of praise, worship and devotion.
Building comradery in the group, along with fostering mentorship and a bond between mature women and young ladies in Christ is important to Pastor Angie and Sis Yvette. SAGA3’s vision is to restore sacred dance to the Church as a form of worship and to use liturgical dance to glorify, worship and praise God. We also edify believers and evangelize to the lost bringing them to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. SAGA3’s dance ministry continues to grow.
Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His Power. Praise Him for His mighty acts: praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise Him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
