Join us for our third gathering of musicians, clergy and lay leaders at The Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center from October 7 to 10 to recharge and renew your congregational song leading skills. Conie Borchardt, Chanda Rule, and additional MMC presenters will lead worship, workshops, and conversation to help you add the valuable tool of paperless song leading to your community’s singing practice. Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can enrich and expand your congregation's repertoire of sung prayer and praise. And enjoy beautiful fall foliage, hearty meals, an evening sing around the campfire, and hike the wooded shores of Otter Lake.
See photos from last year's retreat!
The workshop begins with dinner at 6 PM on Sunday, October 7 and ends with lunch on Wednesday, October 10. Attendees will be able to check in starting at 3 PM on Sunday.
