As I understand it from Colossians 3:16, a key element of congregational worship is hearing the congregation. Singing is in the realm of “one-another” ministry, meaning that we are to sing for the other people there.
— Tim Challies

Great job, choir, beginning the Lord's Day last Sunday with "I'm Living In Canaan Now."  Great sound, great look and great (LONG) last note!  It was a good morning in worship.  This week is our DiscipleNow Weekend with Reid Johnson and the Blake Kelch band.  That means we have a rare day off for the choir and orchestra as the band will be leading our musical worship and Reid will preach in the morning service.  We have dozens of students involved in this event and we believe the Lord is going to do an awesome work in many lives.  Please pray for our students, the parents, host homes, the team and for Bro. Tim as he coordinates this important time.  

We will still have rehearsals on Wednesday!  The Sunday following DNow, April 9, will be Palm Sunday - wow, Holy Week is almost here.  I'm so pleased with the preparation you have made for Palm Sunday and for Easter.  It is going to be a glorious time as we celebrate the resurrection of our King.

We talk much about the glory of God and how we want our worship, and especially our singing to be for the "audience of One."  The quote below reminds us that there is also an aspect of worship that is for the body to experience together.  What a joy it is to look across our congregation and see brothers and sisters in Christ lifting up praise.  May we always strive to "teach and admonish one another in Psalms and hymns and spirituals songs."  (Colossians 3:16)
