God deserves to be worshipped. Our ultimate fulfillment comes in worshipping Him. Furthermore, worship is a gift to the children of God: that we may sing praises to a God who hears our adoration and songs of thanksgiving, as well as our songs of confession and sorrow. In his book The Purpose of Man: Designed to Worship, A.W. Tozer writes, “That biblically defined purpose is that we might worship God and enjoy Him forever.” It is our privilege to be able to meet with and experience this with other believers at Adairsville Baptist Church, whether you are a congregant, a choir member, a worship leader, an adult, a teenager, a child… God has given us the gift of community, and we should be jubilant at the wonder and privilege of lifting our voices in song to our Heavenly Father.
As the new Minister of Music at Adairsville Baptist Church, it is my goal that we, as believers in Christ, continue to celebrate new mercies and new movements of the Holy Spirit through congregational worship, choir anthems, and other special music. Our God is not confined nor constrained, so neither should we be as we seek to worship Him! As Pastor Eric has mentioned, and as the Psalmist writes, “Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth” (Psalm 96:1). Just as we celebrate both previous and present mercies, so should we sing timeless hymns and the new songs God has placed on the hearts of songwriters and lyricists. I look forward to leading you in this way, and I ask that you join me as we all seek to grow closer to God through music. Thank you already for your love and support. Both Madison and I feel very welcomed into this church family, and we look forward to making many friendships at Adairsville.
