I love to read books, blogs, webpages, and devotionals that will help me in my walk with Christ. I have run across some great resources that I want to share with you, so read on!
I’ve just finished reading Song Cycle by Jon Nicol. This is a great resource for learning how to help your congregation be able to connect in worship through the songs that you sing by making sure they know them well. As worship team members, we hear these songs many times more than the average church goer. Jon explains why a small list of songs to choose from can help your congregation learn them and be able to sing them out. In using this method, I’ve noticed a huge difference in the engagement of our people during worship. You can find it here!
I’ve been reading several books on leading worship recently. Holy Roar by Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead is the one I’m reading currently. It’s an easy read, but so full of great insight into the seven Hebrew words that mean praise and how they can relate to the worship in our churches and homes now. Great read!
One of my favorite Facebook Groups is Women in Small Churches. It’s a great place to share ideas, concerns, and ways to grow in your relationship with others in the church. You’ll find ideas for all areas of the church including worship ministry, children’s education, women’s ministry, youth group, Bible study resources, tips for personal growth, and much more! Check it out here!

My church’s website contains the recent sermons by our pastor, Jon Porter. Follow this link to check out his sermons. Milan Christian Church has been our church family for the past 13 years or so. We have grown to love the people here and strive to reach others who need to meet Jesus and learn the message and promise of the gospel.
I use photos from Pixabay for my graphics often. It’s a great free site with quality photos.
