The Mullenaxes have joined the Drapers in hosting a monthly hymn and psalm sing. This month the Mullenax hosted event is this Friday, August 19th. They live just north of Nashville so if you’re a northern dweller and have not been able to make it to the Drapers, we encourage you to make time for this event as they open their home.

Pastor Joe’s sermon last week from Colossians 3:16–17 was timely, exhorting us on the singing life of the church. The hymns and the psalms are formational to our way of thinking as they shape and mold us. Verse 16 says: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” And that’s what we do at these events. You may come, weary from the day, the work, the challenges, and the world, but you will leave refreshed, invigorated, and instructed.

Food, drink, and lively conversation also accompany the singing of hymns and psalms — all things which draw the body of Christ closer to one another, and deepen our walk with God.

The hymn and psalm sing at the Drapers will be the following Friday, August 26th. If you are able, come to one (or both!) of these events to be encouraged, and to lift your praises to God your maker.
