Summer Music Camp

 

Pender Music Camp, July 10-14, 12:30-3:30 pm (This is why MrsO doesn’t teach in the afternoon this week!)

The theme for this summer’s  Pender UMC music camp will be “Star Quest.”   We will be exploring music that expresses the goodness of God’s creation and tells of the truth of His word in the Bible.

Children will be rotating through handbell, Orff, drumming and craft classes.  In addition to these “out-of-this-world” classes, we will be preparing and presenting excerpts from the musical “Star Quest – The Search for the Stolen Scriptures.”

Join us this year as we blast off to fun and song!  For ages rising 2nd grade – rising 6th grade.

Registration is open now.

Saturday, December 3, 2016, 10:00 – 2:00

Pender is excited to once again host Christmas Vacation Bible School!

We’d love to lighten your load this holiday season and give you the gift of time to prepare for Christmas. Your children will have a wonderful time learning about the true meaning of Christmas while moving through different rotations of Christmas Story, craft, music and recreation.   The children will be served lunch, so please note any allergies your child has on the registration form.

Children ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome.   Please note that all children attending MUST be potty-trained.

Since it is Jesus’s Birthday we ask each participant to consider bringing a NEW toy / book as a gift for the “TOYS FOR TOTS” Campaign. The Marines will distribute all your donations to less fortunate children before Christmas. Please don’t bring any food or toy guns/weapons and also gift needs to be unwrapped.

Pender is located at 12401 Alder Woods Drive which is off Route 50 just east of the Fairfax County Parkway.

Local Music Camp – Pender!

music-camp-2016b-feature

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!
