Voices In Praise

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven!
Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness!
Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn; praise him with the lyre and harp!
Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes!
Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!
Praise the Lord!                                    Psalm 150      

Voices in Praise, so named by one of our first members, is the contemporary worship team that leads worship in our 8:30 am Sunday service. With an emphasis on contemporary worship songs, old and beloved hymns are also incorporated to appeal to our blended congregation. Our worship team embraces youth through great-grandparents, featuring both vocalists and instrumentalists. Currently we have drums, keyboard, lead guitar, flute and viola to provide inspiring and upbeat accompaniment to our singing. VIPs always welcome new worshippers -- instrumentalists that have developed their skill to presentation level, and vocalists who can stay reasonably on key. While we greatly appreciate those who can be part of our worship team on a full time basis, we realize that for many a full-time commitment is not possible. Especially in the “good ole summertime” VIPs have a need for skilled instrumentalists and singers because our regulars travel more. This creates great opportunities for folks to join us on a week by week basis. VIPs meet for rehearsal at 7:30 am on Sundays before service. If you have a heart to worship the Lord and you feel God is leading you to become part of our contemporary worship team, even just occasionally, please contact Anne Ciraulo through the church office at 845.452.2933 or anne@pokumc.org
