THE FRIENDLY WHITE CHURCH ON THE HILL




Welcome to Topinabee Community Church. Our mission is simple – to help people develop and maintain an intimate relationship with God. We are a non-denominational church made up of people from a wide variety of religious backgrounds.

We are not perfect, but we are all genuinely seeking a way to celebrate what Jesus has done, is doing, and will do in our lives. We believe that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

We hope you will have the opportunity to join us as we enjoy fellowship with God. You will be welcomed, accepted as you are, and encouraged to grow in Christianity.

Are We Still Fighting About This?
 “I will sing praises to you among the nations.” Psalm 57.9 NRSV
February 26, 2015
Century after century, the church constantly renews itself over styles of worship. Music has always been at the top of the things we fight about as each generation finds its voice. Having pastored through several musical phases, I choose to embrace the good in each style and let the mediocre pass away. But that’s just me.
Seven years ago, I became aware of a struggling lady evangelist in North Korea. Her prayer request to the western churches was simple: “Please pray that before I die I can sing.”
Why did she ask that? When Christians meet to worship in North Korea, they must do so in secret. In their services, they mouth the words of the hymns without making a sound. In North Korea, to sing a Christian song means jail or death.
Imagine having been raised in church without being able to sing. No matter the style, no matter what rhythm or speed or harmony. No singing ever.
Puts the debate and arguing into a wholly different light, doesn’t it?
 Prayer: Lord, before she dies and comes home to You, let her have the opportunity to sing loudly and with joy.
