WORSHIP + MUSIC

At The Village Chapel we desire that our Sunday morning musical worship be God-directed, Christ-centered and congregationally accessible. We want to be a church that sings well! The Apostle Paul directs us to do the same, “…teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16). Musical worship is formative and helps to shape our understanding of the Gospel. We have the privilege of singing to one another, reminding each other of the matchless worth of Jesus.

Call To Worship: Psalm 9

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of Your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

The Lord sits enthroned forever. He has established His throne for justice and He judges the world with righteousness; He judges the peoples with uprightness.

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble; and those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Sing praises to the Lord, who sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples his deeds! Sing praises to the Lord, who sits enthroned in Zion! Amen!

Classic Prayer: Esther DeWaal

Uncrowd our hearts, O God, until silence speaks, in Your still, small voice; turn us from the hearing of words, and the making of words, and the confusion of much speaking, to listening, waiting, stillness, and blessed silence.
