WHY DO YOU SING AT CHURCH?

Do you sing to God? Or do you “address one another in hymns and spiritual songs,” as the Scripture says? Do you close your eyes? What is your posture in worship? This book is designed with these questions in mind.

Or maybe you don’t sing at church–or if you do, not with very much enthusiasm, hoping to hide behind a wall of sound. After all, not everyone sings at the same skill level, same rhythm, or pitch.

After all, singing is one of the most commanded acts in scripture.

Join us, for our new message series as we look at:

  • why the Church should sing
  • when the Church should sing
  • how the Church should sing

Together, we will gain a greater understanding of why they sing won’t dread a worship service, with arms crossed and shoulders slumped, but see singing as an opportunity to proclaim the gospel together in obedience to God.

In this third part of our series we give consider to how the music we choose can impact our families.

Essence:  Generous leaders help others to be all God made them to be.

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant.
Philippians 2:5-7

Generous leaders model and transfer a life of gracious self-giving.

We are encouraged to by the story of how even John the Baptist struggled with doubts about  the truth of who Jesus is.

The Jewish leaders of the day weren't exactly sure who John was and his role.  John was clear to point out who he was not and he pointed to what God was just beginning to do through Jesus.
