Sunday April 22nd found us ministering at Cornerstone Baptist Churhc in Abbotsford where Ray Rogers is the pastor. Using the Sunday School, AM service and Afternoon service Carole and I gave our music seminar. During the Sunday School we talked about music and gave and introduction and music principles. The morning service was a biblical challenge to scriptural music taken from Colossians 3:16. There Paul reminds us to “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.” In the context of progressive sanctification in the Christian life he gives a charge about music. After a delicious pot luck dinner in the church fellowship hall we used the afternoon service to give five key, biblical principles that believers can use to evaluate your music.
Cornerstone Baptist Church is seeing growth with some new people attending. Pastor Ray and Gayle Rogers are in their third year of ministry there and are having an impact on their community. Because of the size of the ministry Pastor Rogers works a secular job in the community which provides contacts and testmony opportunities. Pray for this growing work to reach others in Abbotsford and the surrounding area.
