“O sing to the Lord a new song. . .”
Have you ever been to a baseball game and sung along with the National Anthem? How about “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th Inning Stretch? Live sporting events and rock n’ roll concerts are some of the only places where people sing together in public. . . except for church. Week in and week out, when we gather to worship God, a significant portion of what we do is dedicated to singing. This is something that Bedford Presbyterian Church does particularly well, thanks to the musical gifts of our congregation.
As our Summer Sermon Series “Why Church?” concludes this week, we will be celebrating the singing of songs in church. We sing because it feels good and gives glory to God and we sing because we have been commanded to do so. “Sing to the Lord a new song. . .” we read several places in the book of Psalms. May we respond to that command with great joy.
Come to worship this Sunday at 9:30 AM and sing some new songs and plenty of old songs during our All-Church Hymn Sing. Request your favorite hymn and sing it with your BPC family!
Grace and Peace,
Prepare for Worship

The Sunday in which we “gather in” after summer vacation! “God welcomes all”. Everyone is invited to join us for our two worship services 10 a.m. & 5 p.m. (note time change for the morning service!) and for fellowship, registration and sign-ups for church school, committees, choirs, and youth groups. This begins our sermon series on the Beatitudes.
Following the 10 a.m. service, a church wide barbeque will be held. A sign-up sheet will be in the fellowship hall in early September for people to bring salads-pasta, potato, or green. Veggie burgers, burgers, hot dogs, buns, chips, desserts and drinks will be provided by the fellowship committee. Hope to see you there!
We also will be resuming our 5:00 p.m. varied worship experience. Following this service a potluck supper with all “B” foods (for the Beatitudes Sermon Series). More details on this to follow – watch the bulletins and Hilltop Crier!
