Greetings from the Presbyterian Association of Musicians! We have THREE announcements that we would like shared with the churches in your presbyteries and in any newsletter or digital communications platform you have.
Registration is open for the annual PAM Worship and Music Conferences at Montreat! 2020 is the 50th anniversary of PAM and we are excited to bring you this conference which features clinicians from PAM’s past and new faces of PAM’s future. Among our clinicians are: Mel Bringle, Routley Lecturer; David Eicher, Service Organist; Byron Wade and Jessica Tate, Worship Leaders; Eric Nelson, Adult Choir; and Dave Harris, Handbells.
Early registration rates are good through February 29th. For more information about our conferences, please visit www.presbymusic.org/montreat. We have scholarship money available, too!
This summer at the PAM Worship and Music Conferences at Montreat, we will be offering a Confirmation course for middler youth (entering or exiting 8th grade) and their mentors to prepare them for Confirmation at their home churches. This course, offered during the second week of the conference, will utilize the Big God, Big Questionscurriculum from Presbyterian Publishing Corporation. In addition, the leader of the course, Rev. Meg Rift, is one of the curriculum writers.
This course can be beneficial to youth from churches of any size that may not have a large number of confirmands this year. For more information about the program, please visit our website: www.presbymusic.org/confirmation-course. We have scholarship money available as well!
Thanks to a generous grant from the Central Mission Endowment Fund of St. Philip Presbyterian Church in Houston, PAM is delighted to offer more scholarships for our 2020 Worship and Music Conferences at Montreat. These St. Philip/CMEF Scholarships are available to large groups, small groups, and individuals too! In addition to the conference registration fee, these scholarships can cover lodging, meals, and – for large groups – even travel costs!
