The New Era District Choir, an auxiliary of the New Era District Association, is committed to presenting appropriate music that is biblically sound; that will praise and worship to our God and edify the saints. This will be done in keeping the instructions in Colossians 3:16 "Let the words of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

Tips to help RESUSCITATE YOUR  MUSIC MINISTRY contributed by W. Timothy Bailey, JEFirst Music, LLC.

After a couple of years of stay-at-home orders, quarantines, isolation, face coverings, “pull that mask up over your nose,” physical distancing, no handshakes, no hugs, not to mention warnings from medical professionals that singing is a “high-risk” activity due to the way it spreads aerosol particles, (can I take a breath?!) many Music Ministry leaders feel like Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones! “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” (EZEKIEL 37:3 NIV)

 

Music Ministry is not dead! Singing is a vital part of how we express our faith in and adoration of our Almighty God. God commanded us to sing. We will sing in heaven. Music still ministers to the soul. Anointed music still has the power to calm evil spirits and refresh the listener. Music still encourages and edifies believers. A choir singing from their heart still engages the congregation, touches and warms their hearts and renews and strengthens their faith. Congregational singing still reinforces the unity of the Spirit and the covenant connection within the body of believers.

 

So what are a few ways you can revive your Music Ministry and Prophesy to these bones as
Ezekiel was instructed to do? These thoughts will help you charge up that defibrillator.  CONTINUE READING HERE
