Thank You!

On behalf of the Bluffton and Bluffton North churches, I want to thank all who came to worship with us for the 2023 men’s sing. As I said that morning, I have precious memories of my father sitting in a recliner on Saturday evenings, listening to music through head phones, and pumping his fist to the joyful noise, and I like to think that our Heavenly Father rejoiced along as His children made a joyful noise. Again, thank you. To God be the glory, great things He has done.

And great things He will still do. Lord willing, the Morris and Morris North churches will host the 2025 men’s sing, scheduled tentatively for Saturday, Aug. 23. The hosts for that year will send more details later, and I’m looking forward to worshipping with you again in 2025.Chet Baumgartner, Bluffton Country.

Final Saturday Schedule

We look forward to worshiping with you this Saturday. We also have a blessed day of fellowship prepared for the sisters who come. Like the men, they will gather at the Bluffton North church starting at 9:30 a.m., and they’ll leave at 10 a.m. for the day. They’ll eventually return to meet the men after they finish recording. Please e-mail Chet Baumgartner if you have more questions.

Additional Registration Request

Greetings. Preparations are nearly finished for the Aug. 19 men’s sing, and we’re looking forward to more than 100 brothers uniting in worship. Each person who comes will receive a complementary book with the sheet music for that day, but because we needed to order these books this week, we might be limited in how many more people can join us that Saturday. If you’re interested in singing, please contact Chet Baumgartner directly at info@acmensing.org.

Singer Registration Request

If you think you might sing in the men’s sing but haven’t registered for the Aug. 19 men’s sing, we encourage you to do that by noon tomorrow. We will soon order booklets and would like to have the most up-to-date count possible.

2023 Music Now Available

Greetings in the name of our Lord ~ 

As we continue preparing for the 2023 men’s sing, we hope you’ll help us through prayer and practice. In particular, we’ve published a PDF of each song in the “Quick Links” sidebar to the right to help you learn the songs ahead of time. We encourage you to schedule a time with other brothers in your church—or in nearby churches—to assemble and sing through the songs. We pray these songs will bless and inspire you like they’ve blessed and inspired the men’s sing organizers. 

Once you’ve finished any practices, please delete or destroy any copies you’ve downloaded or printed. On the day of the recording, we will provide each singer with a choir book containing a copy of each song. Furthermore, these copies will include a few more final details not noted in these preliminary PDFs, such as dynamics, solos or duets, measures to repeat, and similar flourishes that emphasize the message. 

For any questions, contact Chet Baumgartner at info@acmensing.org
