“Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25:4-5 NIV
It is important to remember our worship of Almighty God should be part of life every day. More than the praises lifted up on Sundays, worship is about keeping our focus at all times on the One worthy of our worship…the Lord Jesus Christ.
Someone said recently, “Alta Woods has always been a music minded church and the Lord’s going to use us to do what we can for His glory as long as we are able and willing.” In recent years it’s been a challenge to plan musical activities when the only singing group we have is you…the congregation…the BIG Choir.
So I now propose to you, Alta Woods, that we try again going once or twice a month to homebound members and others for a brief time of singing and fellowship. I suggest going to Becky Miller at The Waterford retirement facility on Highland Colony Parkway to let her know she is remembered and appreciated for her 17 years of service at Alta Woods. A sign-up sheet will be placed in the office for you to voice your preferences and go with us. A date will be set as soon as we can determine the level of participation. I pray God will lead you to be part of this endeavor.
Some of you may know Megan Rowan has been working toward a master’s degree in collaborative piano at USM and will soon complete the requirements. Recently she shared that she plans to search for a pianist position where she can more fully use her skills and find a good fit for her growing family to worship together. She assured me she would not be leaving before the end of summer. I tell you this now so we can all join in praying for Megan and her family, but also for the person God would lead to serve as Alta Woods’ next accompanist.
For the past 24 + years, the Music Ministry of Alta Woods Baptist Church has diligently sought to proclaim Jesus Christ, inspire faithfulness, and glorify God in everything we do. May we continue to run with endurance the race He has set before us.
