Serve the LORD with gladness: come before His presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.
Psalms 100:2-4

Music is a language that connects us to our Creator. We are encouraged to praise our Abba musically in several places in the Bible, such as (1 Chronicles 16:9) , (Psalms 28:7) and (Isaiah 12:2) . We find throughout Scripture that music is used to praise, draw near, edify and gain victory.

Worship at The Rehearsal will feature a live band, congregational singing, and congregational dance. This is a time to lay aside the distractions of the world so we can focus on praising and worshiping Him for bringing us out from the bondage of sin so that we can meet with Him. Our desire is that we will connect with him during this time so that we can enter His gates with praise and then draw near through musical prayer.

Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. (1 Chronicles 16:9)

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. (Psalms 28:7)

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. (Isaiah 12:2)

Our theme this year is "Walk in Newness of Life".

"Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." Romans 6:4
