Music Camp - Montreat Worship and Music Conference

For the past 32 years, children, youth and adults from First Presbyterian Church have attended the Presbyterian Association of Musicians’ annual worship and music conference in Montreat, North Carolina. Our Montreators will join renowned conductors and teachers exploring the riches of
God’s love expressed in worship and music for this year’s conference on “Sacraments and Seasons.”

Each conferee pays approximately $350 for the conference registration and food. In addition, each conferee is responsible for their "fair share" of $150 for housing and transportation. The children earn their fair share by participating in fundraising events held throughout the year. Our church budget allocates $20,000 towards the cost of housing and transportation. This year our goal for fundraising for Montreat housing and transportation expenses is also $20,000.

Several Montreat fundraising opportunities are held during the months of October and November:
Delicious homemade pies (Sweetie Pies) will be made during the October and November for members and friends of the congregation. Please see the order form in the Bugle and the pew racks. A sign up form for those wishing to assist making pies will be posted by the choir room door.
