The Gospel and Church Membership – Dr. Mike Tignor will facilitate a class in the Fellowship Hall.  It is a video-driven study led by Dr. David Platt. This series is described as follows: The IMPACT sermon series reveals the biblical basis for commitment to membership in the local church and the missional purpose for that membership. A personal commitment to the local body of believers, the church is consistently revealed throughout the New Testament. Defining the Church as the people for whom Christ died and the people that are created by the salvation which Christ brings, Dr. Platt explores the scriptural picture of the local church. In his teaching he emphasizes the importance of a personal membership commitment in the local church and the biblical directive for the local body of believers to worship biblically, make disciples and have a global impact by sharing the gospel message. A listening outline will be provided.

 

Music Reading 101 – On Sunday nights in January, Reece Watson will be teaching a music reading class for beginners in the choir suite. Music has often been called the universal language. Reading the “language” of music is a skill that can be learned and then used to sing or play an instrument. Lots of people sing or play by ear, but knowing how to read music can open a whole new world to those who put forth the effort to learn. Our goal this month is to help beginners learn basic notation and to help anyone who wants to sing in a choir know what to look for in choral music. “Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob!  Begin the music, strike the tambourine, play the melodious harp and lyre.”  Psalm 82:1-2
