First Christian To Hold A Special Service

First Christian Church, 115 Park Ridge Drive, Warsaw, will hold a special worship service at 9:30 a.m. Sunday. A Thanksgiving celebration lunch with catering by Big Boss BBQ will follow at 11 a.m. The worship service will consist of welcoming Jonathan and Emily Martin as they lead music worship with “The Word in Worship.”

The Martins’ ministry is called “The Word in Worship” and they write songs and devotions out of what God is teaching them through the Word.

In their own words, the Martins are a “short, traveling musical family.” They like to refer to themselves as “travel sized,” which is perfect because they have spent the last eight years traveling the country together leading worship and sharing the songs that they write.

They have released four EPs over the last several years along with a worship album that they released with the help of LifeWay in 2017. Their second EP, “Set Your Eyes,” was reviewed and featured in Worship Leader Magazine and the song “Set Your Eyes” from this project was also featured in the 2014 Easter edition of Song Discovery. In addition, their songs, “Not Our Home” and “Psalm 42,” were published by LifeWay Songs and rereleased in their 2016 and 2017 compilation albums titled “Songs of Faith” and “Psalms and Songs.” Their most recent release “You’re Not Through With Me Yet,” was published and released by LifeWay Songs in March 2018.
