GRBF’s first Lord’s Day services

Oct - 17 - 2011
Richard Barcellos

We prayed, sang, read, and preached the Bible. After morning worship, we ate lunch and discussed the sermon. The pm service was devoted to learning how to sing hymns and psalmsĀ better. We had 30 (15 adults) in the am and 37 (20 adults) in the pm.

    Rich – That is a solid group to start with! We have been praying for God to raise up a church there, and will continue to do so. Praise the Lord for a good seed planted; may it grow into a flourishing body of Christ!

    It was our pleasure to pray for you here at Warners Bay Baptist Reformed Church (Australia) in our morning service. It is encouraging to read your report.

    Great news from SoCal. May the Lord fan this little flame into a great bonfire.

    When I was pastoring, for a time we were meeting in our home. Before sitting together by families for the sermon, we grouped the congregation according to soprano, alto, tenor and bass. The four sections were organized in a square, just like a Sacred Harp hymn sing, with each section facing the middle of the room. Using this arrangement, I taught the congregation to sing the Psalms in four-part harmony.

    Let me offer this clarification: we arranged ourselves for parts singing only during the evening service. And we did not go over parts. We had some good parts-readers in each section, and we just sang the Psalms through, out of the Trinity Hymnal, just like you would normally do. However, grouped in sections, the timid singers had a good parts reader to “sing in their ear” so to speak.
