Worship Band & Praise Team
The worship band and praise team rehearse on Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m. in the Worship Center. Members of this group must meet certain qualifications to lead in this ministry. The worship band is made up of the rhythm section: rhythm guitar, lead/electric guitar, bass guitar, and keys/piano/synthesizer and drums. The Vocal Praise Team (usually 3-4 singers) participate in a rotation schedule that draws from several singers that comprise the Praise Team Vocal Ensemble.
The worship band and praise team have a final run through on Sunday morning at 8:15 a.m.
BFBC Orchestra contributes to our Sunday morning worship time and accompanies the choir on major presentations throughout the year. The orchestra (auditions required), meets on Sunday mornings at 8:15 a.m. to practice with the worship band, choir, and praise team. Music is provided in advance so that orchestra members are able to know their music well before the Sunday practice. Extra rehearsals are scheduled on occasion, especially when special projects such as seasonal presentations are scheduled.
