We will enjoy leadership during the week in crafts by Heidi Shealy. Our minister for the week will be Rev. Alex Pettett, Director of World Witness, ARP Denomination. Alex will be leading our morning worship as well as the Nibble Nook devotions in the evenings for our high school and middle school choirs. Sarah Dagenhart will be our Children’s Church devotional leader once again! Rebecca Nesbit will lead our awesome recreation, and David Hooks will lead music at both Children’s Church and the Nibble Nook in the evenings.

This week will feature reading sessions, interest sessions and voice and organ classes. Kristen Wunderlich, from the First ARP Lancaster and Winthrop University, will be our Voice Instructor. We will also have organ and worship workshops by our conference organist. There will be informational and insightful workshops by composers Rollo Dilworth and Victor C. Johnson, and others on the topics of using Hymns of the Month and planning/teaching Music for Children.

Evening Activities will include a special concert Monday night. We will have our annual talent show on Tuesday night. The Youth and Middle School Choirs will have a pool party and ice cream, and the children will have their traditional Carnival on Wednesday night. We hope you will join us this summer for what we think will be an incredible week. Our theme for the week is “Go into All the World.” Our music in choirs and our theme in worship will be centered on the Worship of Our Lord and Savior around the world and the music that celebrates missions!
