“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” Colossians 3:16
Our aim at Rockdale Community Church is to be the worshipers the Father is seeking; worshipers who worship him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:1-26). We believe music is to be used to reinforce the word of God in us, as the Colossians verse above mentions. Ephesians 5:19 also says to address “one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart” Our songs are selected with these passages in mind! We approach corporate singing as another means of teaching and reminding ourselves of the wondrous love and grace our Father in Heaven pours out upon us!
We come together each Sunday and begin the service with a song of praise that calls us to worship our glorious God! Musical praise is excited celebration about who God is and what He has done, is doing and promises to do! Our hope is for our praise to shift us into a state of reverent worship and standing in awe of how great and marvelous He is!
Our music is a blend of “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs” with a desire to “let the word of Christ dwell in us richly”. We love to sing the word of God! The psalms are the hymn book of the Bible and are meant to be sung! We love returning to the ancient words found in the great hymns to deepen our knowledge and love for God. We also sing contemporary praise songs that provide biblical teaching and point us to God’s transcendent majesty! It is our aim that, whenever we gather for worship, God will be glorified and we will be transformed!
The music team consists of acoustic guitars, piano, keyboard strings, bass and drums.
Our body is blessed with many members who play orchestral instruments and so we include an orchestra once a month.
