Music Ministry

Music is a wonderful gift from God that He has given to us to enjoy and through which to worship Him. Multiple times in Scripture we are commanded to “sing” to the Lord (Ps. 96, Ps. 9:11, Eph. 5:19), and each and every one of us is equipped with the ability to do that and we should do that regularly in our own personal worship times, as well as corporately when we come together and worship as a local church. God has gifted some of us with musical ability and one way that we can use these gifts is by helping lead corporate worship in the local church.  

The Music Ministry at Lakeside’s purpose is to glorify God through God-centered, Christ-exalting songs through the empowering of the Holy Spirit (Ex. 20:3, Rev. 5:12, Eph. 5:18-20). In John 4:23-24 Jesus gives us the basic prescription for how we are to worship God. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” 

The goal of our music ministry is to skillfully (Ps. 33:3) lead the corporate worship of God with songs that are based upon the truth of who He is and how we as men and women and children relate to Him according to Scripture. Our aim is to worship as a congregation in spirit, with our desires, wills, minds, and emotions adoring the Lord as we sing songs of truth about our glorious King from past generations (older hymns), and our current generation (newer hymns and praise songs, Col. 3:16). We as a congregation strive to prefer one another (Rom. 12:10) in the songs that we sing and songs are chosen that blend many different styles into one worship service. This allows us to love one another as we sing together and teach one another through the music we are singing (Col. 3:16). 

Our music ministry offers many different avenues for using the talent God has blessed you with to serve His church.
