Throughout Scripture there are references about singing a new song. For example Psalm 33:3 says “Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” In Ephesians 5:19, Paul tells us to “Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.” After being severely flogged, we find Paul and Silas praying and singing hymns in a jail that couldn’t hold them, Acts 16.
Now you have the opportunity to ‘sing to Him a new song…’ by submitting one song in the worship contest. There are two age categories, 17 and younger or 18 and older. The song must be original and needs to have at least one reference to a Scripture passage. The song must be a worship song, directed towards God.
There are wonderful songs sung about God, but this needs to be directed to God. Songs may be sung a cappella or with instrumental accompaniments, but must be sung in English. The songs must be submitted by September 23rd, 2006. The songs for the two age categories will be posted on the website, for people to listen to the songs and vote for their favorite. Songs will be posted on the website and voting will begin on September 25th, 2006. Only one vote per computer will show up, to keep the voting fair.
First place winners will receive a Guitar, Case, Tuner and a set of the first three volumes of Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class(TM) DVD’s. Second place winners will receive the 3 DVD’s. The winning songs will stay posted at the site. Best songs will be posted and voted on at the end of September.
