Connection opportunities from last week's GREEN SHEET worship supplement:

  • Show Choir Camp

    July 23-28

    Each summer we present this week-long camp full of fun, friends, and inspiring music and movement where students who have completed 1st - 8th grades can experience the basics of show choir in a positive environment. They will spend the week learning an entire show choir set with uplifting music and fun choreography, while also exploring the inspirational themes of the music through devotions and a service project. The week ends in an epic performance for family and friends, which includes all camp students.

    A morning session (9am-Noon) is offered for students who have completed 1st - 4th grades. An afternoon session (1:30pm-4:30pm) is offered for mid-high students who have completed 5th - 8th grades. It all happens July 23-28.
