David Bales, Worship Pastor
Hi I’m David, and I’ve had dozens of conversations over the past 18 months, that have reminded me of little things that I take for granted when things are “normal.” One of those things is singing together. I remember, that at the beginning of the pandemic, there was concern about spreading the virus by singing together in the same room. I’m know that concern is not completely gone for everyone, but I also know there are a lot of people ready to sing together again.
Having a choir and worship reminds me that worship is not about listening to someone else sing. Worship is, at its best, when everyone joins together with one voice. That is what makes singing with a choir a special kind of singing. One or two voices, even three or four can put together beautiful harmonies, but it takes a choir for the voices to blend together and become one voice.
In the same way, one or two people can come together and worship God. Not to diminish the significance of what happens when just two or three are gathered together to worship, there’s something undeniably beautiful when we all come together as a church to worship our God—when we join our voices as one to worship our Lord, Jesus Christ.
If you would like to be a part of the choir this Sunday, we’d love to have you sing with us. Just tell us you’re coming at firstchurch.net/events.
