Contemporary Worship Ministries (Focus, Dec 2016)

01.31.17 | Worship

    This past fall, Sound of Light travelled to Port Lavaca, TX to lead an energetic worship set for a large group of students at Calhoun High School. It was a blast to see these students worshipping and responding to God! We will be going back in the first quarter of 2017 to host a concert. 

    In October, ten of us from our worship team family headed to Dallas for a worship conference at Gateway Church. It was an amazing time to fellowship and bond as a team. We don’t often have the opportunity to be led in powerful worship. Our only responsibility was to soak in the presence of the Lord and hear all He wanted to share with us. The conference leaders packed a lot into a couple of days and we were able to go, recharge, and come back having experienced deep growth and rich fellowship. This is something that we do once a year and it is so incredibly valuable to our team. 

    We continued working on the pre-production for our upcoming album release in 2017. The team feels a strong call to write original music and to be a band on mission. Music crosses over cultures and barriers, and is a connecting point for all people. We want to share the gospel through our music to effect change and growth. This is the 3rd album that we will be releasing. I am thankful to God that we get to Glorify Him through these original songs and excited about this new album because many of these songs are stories that have come from our own lives. We’re praying that people will hear their own stories in our songs and be encouraged to draw close to the Lord. 

    One of our favorite times of the year is the annual Christmas Service, Glory to the King. Our friends, Divisi Strings, joined us once again for an incredible time of music and praise to our King! Along with normal preparation for Glory to the King, we wrote, recorded, and released an original Christmas song. As we were writing the lyrics, I thought how fitting it would be to name the song after our Christmas service, a tradition that holds a special place in our hearts. We released the song as a gift to the church on Christmas Eve. There is now a link on our UBC website if you would like to download the song for free! We hope you will listen to it for Christmas seasons to come!
