Music Factory Sunday was a success!

If you didn’t get to see it, find it on the church’s YouTube page. Here is a fun cast photo with the entire music factory history.

We are so excited to be able to present our week-long music/drama camp, The Music Factory, again this year.  We were all disappointed when we weren’t able to hold this historic camp last year.  But we are back with our same great leaders, Sara Gaines, Caitie Layton, and Carol Crowder.  And for our youth that were disappointed to miss their last year of Music Factory, we have extended our upper group to include 8th graders this year!
