Arts Camp is a cooperative effort between EFBC and Easley Presbyterian Church. It plants seeds of faith in the lives of children. As artists and artisans share their gifts and skills, they also model ways that God’s gifts are to be used for His glory. We believe that the significance of this week is eternal!
Each summer we conclude the One Voice Student Choir year with a musical tour to some region of our country. As we go, we pray that the experience, the music, the fellowship, the spontaneous interactions with people around the country will transform lives. Through choral music, drama, narration, choreography, and video, the students share the story of God’s inclusive love and its power to transform our society.
