Christians can have joy in all circumstances, even in the face of immense suffering.

Paul's life testified to the truthfulness of this claim, and he wrote the letter of Philippians to remind the church in Philippi that they too could find joy and suffering.

Throughout the letter Paul spends considerable time thanking the church for their partnership in the Gospel. The 1st century church was an encouragement to Paul through their prayers and financial support.  It was through their generosity the believers in Philippi became partakers in the missionary advance of the early Church.

This week, Chris Connolly gives a real time encounter with Paul through a first person monologue.

Chris Connolly is an intervention specialist at Mansfield Senior High, where he also leads Life Club.

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 our final installment we ask the question:  Will You Sing?  Because if we will sing, the Gospel will be heard.  We enjoyed a conversation with Sheila Holloway, our Director of Music on some final thoughts.

In our 5th installment we look at this simple truth:  our hymns do not only help us in mission, they also call us to mission and sustain our mission.  As we sing in worship it is not just a family gathering; the doors are open for all to enter to learn more about God's promise.

In this fourth part of our series we give consideration to the role of music in the local church...Jonathon Edwards said... The most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music. How does congregational singing impact the mission of the church.

In this second part of our series we start with the simple idea that we are what we eat.  So what kind of music are you consuming?  Together we wrestle through  the the truth that If we are what you sing…we ought to singing…the rich truths of the Gospell so they can sustain us and remind us as we face each day!
