Praise Worship Band

musiciansThe Praise Worship Musicians are a group of singers and an ensemble of various instrumentalists who lead the music weekly at the Praise Worship service in the Fellowship Hall. This team of dedicated people also work closely with the pastor in the planning process of this service. Praise Worship is our contemporary weekly liturgy held at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Membership is open to people of all ages. Rehearsals are held primarily on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. or at the discretion of the director. Instruments used include piano, electric keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, string bass, flute, saxophone, drums, and others.

Music plays an important role in the life and worship of our parish. Trinity is proud of the diversity in the music programs. Many different styles of music have been embraced by the congregation, from the music of “masters” to the more contemporary styles of music of today’s Christian composers.

Martin Luther, writing on the subject of music said, “I wish to see arts, principally music, in the service of Him who gave and created them. Singers are never sorrowful, but are merry and smile through their troubles in song. Music makes people kinder, gentler, more staid and reasonable. I am strongly persuaded that after theology there is no art that can be placed on a level with music; for besides theology, music is the only art capable of affording peace and joy in the heart.”
