Re-dedication of Toteleni (Giving thanks) Praise Team — Zambia

Many church choirs in Zambia annually re-dedicate themselves and their ministry of music.

Purpose of Gathering

We have gathered here this afternoon for the sole purpose of re-dedication of the Toteleni Praise Team.

Scripture Reading      1 Chronicles 25:6-7

‘They were all under the direction of their father for the music in the house of the LORD with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the order of the king. They and their kindred, who were trained in singing to the LORD, all of whom were skilful, numbered two hundred and eighty-eight.’


Opening:   To God be the Glory
Closing:   Take my life and let it be

Words of Blessing

Lord Jesus, the owner of the Church, we dedicate Toteleni Praise Team before you that as they offer praise and worship to you, they may always be glorified in Jesus’s mighty name. Amen.

Closing Words

May God’s face shine upon you as you sing to God’s glory. Amen.
