Music, specifically singing, is one of the ways that we worship God, and is a large part of our worship gatherings on Sunday afternoons.
Why do we sing?
Most importantly, we sing because of what God has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. God has given us a song to sing!
A few other reasons we sing:
We sing because God has told us to (Psalm 47:6; Psalm 96:1-2; Psalm 98:1; Psalm 105:2; and more!)
We sing because God sings (Zephaniah 3:17)
We sing because the Holy Spirit fills us with song (Ephesians 5:18-19)
We sing to remember God's word (Colossians 3:16)
We sing to teach and encourage one another (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16)
We sing to express our unity as the church (Colossians 3:15)
How do we sing?
We sing together, as one body (Colossians 3:15) with one voice. Our music is usually led by a few vocalists and a small band, but the entire gathered church is a part of the musical worship we raise to the Lord.
What do we sing?
The Bible commands us to sing "psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs" (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16), so we do that - we sing a variety of different types of songs! We sing hymns that were written hundreds of years ago, we sing the words of Scripture, and we sing songs written in recent years; all with the goal of clearly, authentically, and passionately expressing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
But what do we actually sing?
Here is a Spotify playlist that includes many of the songs we regularly sing at our worship gatherings. We have this available so that you can become familiar with the songs we frequently sing, and also so that you can be encouraged throughout the week by these songs.
Can I help with leading worship in song?
Yes! Contact Stephen if you have questions about being a part of the worship band, or anything else about our Sunday worship gatherings.
