2014 Summer Music Camp



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!

1 Peter 1:18-19



For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. –1 Peter 1:18-19
