We hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season.
Exciting things have been happening at the S.L.A.M. Academy. We have been partnering with established urban ministries to minister together to the youth in Akron, Ohio.
In October we partnered with The Chapel and held an after school program for twenty one kindergarten and first grade students in an inner-city Akron Public School.
Every week we taught them that they are created and loved by God, His uniquely designed masterpiece and their life has worth and value. After our short teaching of biblical truths, our hip hop instructor, Laura Aman, (pictured below) taught them a fun routine.
It was so fun to watch these kids explore God’s truth and experience dance training that they would most likely never receive any where else.
This is just the beginning of what God is doing…
We believe that God is calling us to offer training in the arts to those less fortunate. We know that this training can bring healing, create character and offer discipline and self confidence. When we explore our creativity we learn so much about God and how He has created us. What we offer, the combination of arts training & biblical truth, is truly life changing.
Will you join us? Would you consider giving a tax-deductible, year-end gift to our ministry and make an impact in the lives of the young people in the city of Akron and the Kingdom of God?
Simply click on the “Donate” tab on the right of our home page. Your gift will help us purchase a portable ballet barre and portable mirrors. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Thanks for considering to partner with us!
Take care & Merry Christmas!!

Sometimes we need to be reminded that God is the Artist – we are His handiwork, fearfully and wonderfully made. He rejoices over each one of us -
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.

With his love, he will calm all your fears.
