"How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!" -Psalm 147:1
Worship is the ultimate activity of humanity. We were made to worship God. We hope at FAB to provide a space for God's people to gather together in worship of the living God. We also provide ways for individuals to intentionally worship during the week, through devotionals, songs, and focused attention to discipleship as the enactment of worship in the world.
An important aspect of Christian worship is music. The Book of Psalms, or course, is a songbook, and it has been supplemented over the centuries by expressions of faith by believers in every generation, including our own. At FAB we draw from those expressions of faith, many of them found as hymns, to give voice to our own praise and prayer in the present.
On this page are a variety of ways you can be involved in worship leadership through music. However, the most important music-making is the congregation's singing. Through the hymns and songs the congregation participates directly in worship, not as spectators but as the ones who themselves speak to God. Even if you are self-conscious about your singing ability, at least contemplate the words to the hymns as we sing, and allow your spirit to sing with your church family. Congregational singing is not about musical quality; it is about joining the saints from around the globe and throughout all time in the ceaseless praise of God. To put it another way, from reading the Book of Revelations it is clear that all believers will one day join in singing around the throne of God; why wait until then to get started?
