Why We Praise and Worship
“Make a joyful noise, shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God. It is He who has 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.” – Psalm 100: 1-4
Music is an integral part of the worship experience, and the PTC Music Ministry strives to magnify the Lord. This is our goal, first and foremost. Through the leadership of Creative Arts Pastor Jason Bowen, and a worship team consisting of a few regulars and an entire crew of singers and musicians that are on rotation, the PTC3 Praise Team brings a joyful noise unto the Lord for five services throughout the week, including our traditional, modern, and cafe style worship services.
Understanding Praise & Worship
“When we worship, the invisible God is at work doing invisible and powerful things. We get realigned, refreshed and refueled; we find unspeakable joy and indescribable peace. We discover the breakthrough strength of God, which enables us to walk in the truth, live in His presence and see Him fight our battles for us. It is how we can put the beauty of the Gospel on display, receive His many blessings and at the same time be a blessing to the world.” – Tommy Walker
“There’s power in our acknowledgement that He is worthy, above all else, of our worship and praise. His Spirit urges us onward, to press in close to him. Doesn’t matter how good or “not so good” we feel like we can sing, doesn’t matter if we like upbeat worship, more reflective songs, or traditional hymns. Doesn’t matter if we’re alone, with a few, or in a big group. Doesn’t even matter whether we “feel” like it or not. What matters is this – our hearts in tune with our Creator and King. – Debbie McDaniel
