A Singing Church

I am so appreciative of our volunteers who faithfully give of their time to serve in the Multimedia ministry. On a side note, if you happen to see one of these who serves in this area - those who work at the sound booth or upstairs running lights, presentation software, cameras, or recording - please let them know that you too are grateful for their ministry. This is an area that often gets unrecognized unless something goes wrong. They do a tremendous job and with a servant’s heart.

A couple of weekends ago, we had a training for our audio engineers. A friend of mine served as the clinician, and he gave great insight. Although we learned much, he gave you, FBC Weatherford, one of the greatest compliments that could be                given. As he walked around during the service in various parts of the Worship Center to listen to the audio mix and the coverage of the speakers, he observed that you are a “singing church.”

What this would imply is that not all congregations sing. This is true. I have ministered in churches where I would not necessarily consider the people to be a singing people. They are often filled with observers, spectators, evaluators, critics, and people who say that they “just don’t or can’t sing.” I guess they are unaware of or uninformed that there is a Scriptural command to sing to the Lord, to praise Him with our voices in song. 

This coming Sunday night, September 30 at 6:00 p.m., we will be worshipping God through Hymns of Our Faith. Through these songs we will worship and glorify God, encourage one another in our faith, and be reminded of theological and doctrinal truths. I hope you will come and be a part of this time of corporate singing and music.  

I am glad that my friend labeled us in this manner. It speaks highly of you and your love for God. Your involvement in corporate singing ministers to God and to others. Your participation communicates that worship through song is more about God than it is us. Although I love to hear you sing, GOD LOVES IT MORE! 

(Ephesians 5:19-21)
