It’s about Worship
“I will sing a new song to you, my God” Psa. 149:9
Music, at its very core, is about worshiping God. When David told God in Psalm 144:9, “I will sing a new song to you, my God,” he wanted his song of praise to be unlike any other ever sung.
Whether you choose to be in Choir, Hilltop Faith (our audition Choir), Worship or Concert Band, or Music Fundamentals (a class that will introduce you to the basics of music), we want you to make a new song. You may even want to take part in one of our annual spring musicals, or you may simply prefer to come to the front of the sanctuary during chapel and sing just for Jesus. It’s all good.
We want you to praise God in a new way, a way authentic to you. Nobody can sing like you. Nobody can play a horn or the violin quite like you. You may not think you sing well, but all God asks of you is that you “Worship the Lord with gladness” (Psalm100: 2). We don’t have to be experts; we simply need to be glad. Even if you’re not the next American Idol, you have a new song within you, and we want to hear it.
