A Word from Mike…

Colossians 3.16    Let the word of Christ* dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.*

What a wonderful Sunday with our new music director Hunter Birkhead and having the choir back with us for worship! Music is an essential part of the worship experience and I am thrilled to have such talent on our staff and in our congregation. Some of you have thought about joining before and been hesitant, but now is an excellent time to join the choir. FCC Midwest City is a wonderful place to feel “in tune” with God and we are blessed!

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike
