As Desert Skies UMC looks towards the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, we are excited to announce our new “Summer Camp” program, which is a combination of Vacation Bible School and Music Camp. This year’s theme is “Shipwrecked, Jesus Saves” and runs from June 4th to 8th, with a final performance on June 10th. Summer Camp will be open to children from ages Pre-K to the 9th grade for either a half-day or a full day’s activities depending on the age of the child. In addition, Adult and Youth volunteers will be needed for this event. If you are interested in participating, or need more details, please check our website and/or contact Doc Shawn.
After an incredibly uplifting, fulfilling, and poignant Lent and Easter season, we are now looking forward to the laid-back summertime activities. What that means for the music program at Desert Skies is that the Adult Choir, Handbells, and Ring and Sing will be taking a break during the summer months after June 3rd. Choir will reconvene on August 22nd and Handbells, and Ring and Sing will resume rehearsals in September. However, summertime also means that we will feature more music from our talented parishioners by enlisting different soloists, duets, and small ensembles during the worship services. If you or someone you know might be interested in being a part of the special music offering, please contact Doc to arrange for available dates and times.
I for wish everyone to have a fun and restful summer whether you are traveling away or staying in town. God’s Blessings upon you all!
