SING….The radical witness when congregations…. Sing!

The radical witness when congregations…. sing! Psalm 66:2 Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. Glorious worship is exuberant, never half-hearted. It is attractive, not off-putting. It is awesome, never sentimental. It is brilliant not careless. It point to God, not to the speaker….. There is nothing more evangelistic, nothing that will win the world more than glorious worship. [The Song Jesus, Tim Keller, May 22 Psalm devotion] SINGING TOGETHER IS ALEAYS A WITNESS The church is…

SING:… with the local church

Sing with the local church 1 Peter 2:4–5 [4] As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, [5] you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Worship & Service and Discipleship

God has called us to worship Him and to serve Him. Though these may appear to be separate actions, the bibles shows us that they are closer then we think. Download Handout: PD 09 – Worship and Service WORSHIP: God has called us to worship Him. He has given us directions on what is acceptable worship and what is not. To worship God is to ascribe the proper worth to God, to magnify His worthiness of praise, or better, to…

SING: We are Compelled to Sing!

Alistair Begg once said “Saved people are singing people” “Worship isn’t primarily about music, techniques, songs or methodologies. It’s about our hearts. It’s about what and who we love more than anything.” Bob Kauflin We are compelled to sing because of Christ’s Love. [14] For the love of Christ compels us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; [15] and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live…

SING

SING! by Keith and Kristyn Getty I recently read this gem by Keith and Kristyn Getty. After reading it, I felt this was something that I needed to share with our music ministry. I bought each member of our choir a copy of the book. Over an eight week period, we walked through this book together and talked about the principles and challenges that book presented. Over the next weeks, I will be posting what I shared in our time…

Preparing For Sunday Worship.

How do you prepare for worship on Sundays?  Like any event or task, proper preparation leads to a good experience. A good cook makes sure that they have all the necessary ingredients before they begin preparing a meal. An athlete prepares for an event way before the event takes place so when it is time to compete they are warming up. When you head out on vacation, you plan for what you need for that week. We must also prepare…
