Scripture Engagement/ Singing Scripture in a Small Group

Singing Scripture in a Small Group

Worship can be a deeply meaningful part of a small group, and how better to worship together than singing God’s Word and promises back to him? This can also be a good way to help your group memorize Scripture and develop a sense of community. For groups that perhaps tend to operate more on a cognitive level, singing the Word balances the small group experience with a more emotive element. Something that might be fun if you have a musical/creative group is to work together to create tunes for Scripture passages. If music is not a natural strong point for your group, you can go to the Singing Scripture Resources page of this website to find resources in which artists have already put the words of Scripture to music.
