“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” – Ephesians 4:29
The Choir seeks to praise God through hymns, anthems and spiritual songs on regular as well as special occasions. Weekly sessions are held to practise for Easter Sunday, JSM Anniversary, Christmas and Bible Conferences. Each event requires 2-3 months of preparation. Besides learning and revising basic singing techniques, diction and expressions, there is also the sharing of God’s Word for instruction and encouragement.
When sufficient members are available for strength and balanceamong vocal parts, the Choir will also sing on special occasions such asweddings and funeral wakes. Selected Choir members minister to the congregation by leading pre-worship hymns and memory verses on Sundays, and teaching memory verses to Sunday School students. Current active membership is about 32 although the actual attendance is 20-25.
May God continue to bless and prosper the Choir as a spiritual ministry of the church, guided by His Word, sustained by prayer, promoting godly music and kept pure from Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). May all members be faithful in service, united in spirit, humble inlearning, caring towards one another and strengthened in the body to serve God without hindrance. May God also raise up a succeeding generation of godly men and women to provide continuity in singing, conducting and piano accompaniment for His honour and glory!
