Music Camp Overview
By Leon Lake
First Presbyterian was happy to host a music camp this summer for the first time since the pandemic. With the help for Libby Whiteley and Karmen Van Dyke from Second Presbyterian; First began a mission to provide music to our community. It was important for us to offer this to the Presbytery because I believe that the future of the church will depend on a strong community. We were successful in offering a camp that looked a little more like a music Vacation Bible School than a “traditional” music camp, and I think the important and significance of that was felt by our students. We had almost 30 kids ages 3-16 that focused on having fun while learning Bible stories and making music. When one of the students, who has never been to church before, was asked what the most important thing about the story was, he said God, and that counts for something.
