“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him" (Colossians 3:16–17). In these verses, we see the significance and purpose of our singing together. In our Sunday gatherings, we aim for our music to be characterized by:
- Songs rich in the “word of Christ,” or the good news that Jesus has come to earth to bear the punishment for our sins and rise from the dead, giving all those who trust in him peace with God and the assurance of eternal life
- Songs that amplify God’s Word and enable a variety of responses, including awe, celebration, lament, and confession
- Liturgical elements and songs that draw from both the past and present
- Instrumentation that supports and complements theologically driven lyrics and passionate congregational singing
- Musicians who seek to glorify God not only with their musical gifts but with their lives
While we believe the most important musical sound on Sunday mornings is the congregation, we’re always on the lookout for instrumentalists and vocalists who want to use their gifts to serve the church, whether that be on a Sunday morning, in the choir, or for special events.
