2020 Music Camp Canceled

After much consideration and prayer, St. John's Music Ministry has decided to cancel the 2020 Music Camp.

As St. John's prepares to resume in-person worship, there are still many uncertainties and risks to hosting Summer Camps. The health and safety of everyone in the community is a matter of the utmost importance. We would like to host the Music Camp in a time that we do not need to worry about practicing social distancing, and we do not need to worry the children picking up the virus in close contact while singing and playing instruments.

We want to make sure that no one will be placed at unnecessary risk. We pray that the pandemic will be over in the next couple months. St. John's Music Ministry looks forward to hosting the 2021 Music Camp.

Pray at 12 Noon Every Day
