Who We Are?
Full Measure is Penn’s only Christian a cappella group. Our name comes from Ephesians 3:16-19: 16: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the MEASURE of the FULLness of God. (NIV)
Of The Group
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. -1 Corinthians 10:31, NIV
To glorify God in all that we do, not just in our actual performances, but also in our rehearsals, our fellowship, even during our FM all-nighters. This means learning our music on time, observing the attendance policy, being productive and focused during rehearsals, etc.; to work hard and to work joyfully, for God’s glory.
Of The Individual
I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. -John 15:5, NIV
Outside of scheduled FM time, we should continue to work for God’s glory. Being in Full Measure requires a real commitment — more than attendance at rehearsals and gigs, everyone must come prepared. Prepare by studying diligently, so that it will never be a problem to come to rehearsals, even a night before an exam.
Also prepare spiritually. It is important that everyone has a personal relationship with Christ so that there may be power in our actions. Full Measure is more than having the “Christian” name stamped on. We want to be a ministry, but before that we must be rooted in the Spirit.
