While we sit out this time of uncertainty due to COVID-19, let's not cease in joining together to worship as a congregation. When we gather as a church, to sing together as instructed in Psalm 95: "O Come let us sing to the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise," we're not merely singing to God, we're singing to one another. We cannot rise above the difficulties we face until we turn our hearts to Jesus and we can encourage each other to do this through song.
Each day (a challenge to be sure!) we will post a song choice from one of our congregation which we can all listen to and share together in this act of praise and worship in our own hearts.
To submit your song fill in the title, and writer if you know it, your name and why the song means something to you - this way we will a learn a little more about each other even while we keep our distance:
