Music Camp Registration Opens Tomorrow



Imagine sixty kids singing and playing music to the Lord. What a glorious sound it would be, right? This is the ministry of Music Camp… to give children a chance to see how fun using music to praise the Lord can be! Like Vacation Bible School, which is held the same week in the mornings, this venue encourages the participation of children in a week-long camp format.

Music Ministry staff and volunteers work together each year to organize and orchestrate a summer music camp.  It’s an opportunity for students and parents alike to experience the joy of praising God through music. Musical experience is not necessary to participate!

At Pender’s Music Camp, rising second through sixth graders sing in choir, play Orff instruments, ring handbells, experiment with rhythm in a percussion class, learn to read music, and make crafts. Older youth are always welcome to help out as teaching assistants.

Friday afternoon traditionally concludes with a musical performance, complete with costumes and choreography, which our campers perform for friends and family!

Mission Sing ‘n Celebrate, May 4th at 7 pm


In John 12:26, Jesus says that “the Father will honor anyone who serves me.”

Jesus’ message is for everyone – no matter what their social, cultural or racial differences.

Jenny Reyes will be our guest speaker. She and her husband, Ben, have been faithfully serving their Lord since 1989 in Brazil and Paraguay. Besides working with Ben in developing training that will equip Latin Americans for cross-cultural ministry, Jenny also works in her homeland, Brazil, in discipleship — leading Bible study seminars and teaching about church planting.

Please plan to join us, so that we can show our appreciation for her service.
