Worship Arts Ministry

We are busily preparing to worship our Lord and Savior with you each Sunday as well as the special presentations during the holiday season. I also want to thank all those who are making these presentations possible with the behind the scenes efforts. The Singing Christmas Tree 2017 experience is possible only because of YOU.

Worship Arts UPDATE

The Singing Christmas Tree: As you can imagine, with the many ministries that claim the FBC campus as home, storage is incredibly limited. The storage needs of these ministries must be kept in balance so that we are not in violation of any fire or building codes and yet make regularly used items the most accessible. Therefore, it’s been decided to move the storage of The Singing Christmas Tree lighted panels OFF campus…we are investigating options.

Our current 1991 Hymnals: We have enjoyed using the hymnals that are readily found in the pew racks and in some Bible study classrooms on the FBC campus. These musical resources have served us well!

What: I believe it is time for the FBC family to have access to the most current Baptist Hymnal. The 2008 Baptist Hymnal has been available now for nearly 10 years! It contains over 90% of the hymns that we grew up with and more.

Why: God continues to motivate His people to write hymns of praise and worship everyday. The 2008 Baptist Hymnal has added a few “newer” hymns that are just as inspired, Gospel centered and biblically grounded. Writers such as, The Getty’s, Chris Tomlin, Paul & Rita Baloche, Michael W. Smith, and Matt & Beth Redman have established themselves over the past 20+ years as godly men and women that have been successful in leading worshipers
to see Christ and humankind’s desperate need for the salvation that only He can provide.

Who: You or anyone.
How: You might naturally ask, “How will these “new” hymnals be paid for? I think a “1 for 1 hymnal project” would work for us. Simply buy for yourself, for others or for one of our local nursing/care homes a gently used and cleaned 1991 Baptist Hymnal @ $14.00 each to allow the church to purchase a 2008 Baptist Hymnal as its replacement.

When: Now, soon or the near future…the rate of replacement is up to you. Our goal would be to replace our current stock of hymnals with new 2008 Baptist Hymnals before March 2018. We will know more as funds come in and as the time approaches. We will get FREE shipping from the publisher if we can order a minimum of (96) new hymnals. The gently used 1991 Hymnal that you purchase will be available on Sunday, March 4, 2018 after the 11:00 am worship service near the Welcome Center.

As always, thank you for supporting the Worship Arts ministry. Your participation helps to spread the Gospel to all those who will listen!

His, Tim
