Each year, there is a migration into the heart of the mountains of North Carolina of church musicians, choir members, dancers, handbell ringers, visual artists, worship committee members, pastors and more. Cutting across generations, children, youth and adults all find a place to explore and grow at The Fellowship’s Music & Worship Arts Week, as they practice their particular passions in worship arts with others. New relationships with people and with nature are formed, others are renewed.
In this time, set aside, the Spirit moves – breaking through to our spirits in worship, rehearsal, and around the table, offering encouragement, new visions, and challenges.
