The rich heritage of music has been recorded for us from ancient times. Both voices and instruments were used to express the full range of human emotions. Even the brief glimpses we have of what takes place in the heavenly courts often include a description of the music there. And when God gathers His children around His throne they hold harps and sing “the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb” (Rev. 15:3).
“The history of the songs of the Bible is full of suggestions as to the uses and benefits of music and song. Music is often perverted to serve purposes of evil, and it thus becomes one of the most alluring agencies of temptation. But, rightly employed, it is a precious gift of God, designed to uplift the thoughts to high and noble themes, to inspire and elevate the soul... As our Redeemer leads us to the threshold of the Infinite, flushed with the glory of God, we may catch the themes of praise and thanksgiving from the heavenly choir round about the throne; and as the echo of the angels’ song is awakened in our earthly homes, hearts will be drawn closer to the heavenly singers. Heaven’s communion begins on earth. We learn here the keynote of its praise.” (Ellen G. White, Education, pages 167-168.)
Time & Location
In our name we respond to the call to unite as a group with the purpose of taking a journey to experience Fellowship, to meet God, discover, and heed His reasonable call to Worship Him alone, and to naturally respond to the admiration of His love and goodness with our Praise. Wherever we meet becomes your Center, your lighthouse, your refuge. You may join us on any Saturday at 11 am for our main Fellowship Worship Praise session or you may contact us here.
What to expect
Music can convey our thanks to God. “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song” (Psalm 28:7).
Music can be joyful. “Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song” (Psalm 95:1, 2). “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs” (Psalm 100:1, 2).
Music can be praise to the Lord. “The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang...” (II Chron. 5:13).
Music can be a prayer for forgiveness or a petition for help when trials threaten to overwhelm. It can be a medium to weld a diverse group of people into one accord. “When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives” (Matt. 26:30).
This is why we are the Fellowship Worship Praise Center, all for the honor and adoration of our loving God.
