Week one of our spring focus, "why the church does what it does". We begin with the beginning—Christians gather every week because we CARE. The church gathers to comfort, affirm, recall, and engage. There's several reasons the church sings. Singing gives each person an opportunity to get their voice in the room. Singing together is unifying. And music is the universal language, and that includes heaven. ~
