ENCOUNTER PRAISE BAND

These talented musicians and vocalists are there for one thing: to glorify God through great music. Each worship service is different with a mix of hymns, classic rock, contemporary Christian music, classical, current pop, jazz, country and anything else that may pertain to the message of the day. The band is always looking for new musicians and vocalists to be part of a special group who are eager to share their talents with the world. Rehearsals are Sundays at 7:45 a.m. Director: David Pfleger
