Our Praise Band is comprised of various singers and instrumentalists in the congregation that serve at our monthly Praise & Worship Sunday (held at 10:30am on the third Sunday of every month). Assigned monthly, the team is usually comprised of 2-5 singers, 1-3 guitarists, a pianist and/or keyboard player, and 1-2 percussionists. Additional instrumentation is also desired. Rehearsals are on Thursdays at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary.
Each Praise Band member is expected to attend at least one weekly rehearsal, to have basic music reading skills, to be able to follow a chord chart, (vocals) to be able to sing a melody line solo and/or be able to sing a harmony part by ear and/or sight, and prioritize participation in “special seasonal music ministry” events & services. Excellence in musicianship and performance skills are high priorities, but a heart for worship is the most important characteristic of a leader in the Praise Band, as it is in all of the music ensembles at PPPCC.
