Summer lights is a brand-new Pine Cove worship album that will be released May 1, 2012! Our goal in doing projects like this one is to provide a resource that connects campers to their experience at Pine Cove. That being said, we hope that a camper’s week at Pine Cove is the best week of their year. A highlight. Not just because it is fun, but because God does a transforming work in them, for His glory. That’s our hope.

So then, we desire for this CD to point campers back to their summer experience so they can remember what God has done in their lives.

We also believe that worship has a way of shedding light on what is really important to us. The reality is that we all worship. The question is what and why. It is our prayer that this CD brings people to a place of worshipping God – seeing Him for who He is and responding.

So join us. In remembering what God has done and responding to Him.

In the Studio

Unlike the last couple Pine Cove projects, this one was recorded in an actual studio. A couple of our former Towers staff, Stephen Mathew and Seth Penn are part of a start-up studio in Nashville, TN called Studio 930 ( Because of our connection with these guys, they agreed to not only record this project but give us an amazing price for working with them. We are really grateful! So last fall, Pine Cove’s Matt Murphy headed to Nashville and spent one week producing the album alongside Studio 930’s Seth Penn and Kyle Schonewill.

According to Matt, this was the smoothest recording process that he’s been a part of. “We were really blessed to be working with some amazing musicians connected to Pine Cove through the various camps. Without the quality of that team, we couldn’t have recorded the whole album in a week’s time.” Studio 930 also did the mixing and mastering of the album.
