Monday nights with Michael Burkhardt resume September 8, 2014
All children, grades 2-7, are invited to share in the worship and arts experiences of summer camp on Monday evenings during the school year. Children gather at 6:30 p.m. for a light supper and work with Michael until 8:00 p.m. The work includes singing and instrumental experiences in handbells, African drumming and Orff ensemble.
