Praise Team

Contact Kathy de Waard

Blending the hymns of earlier generations but to a new beat -- with the contemporary, this team has a passion to lead the congregation to the throne of God.  At CRC we have the freedom to worship as the Spirit leads, be that kneeling, standing, raising our hands.  We extol our God in our words and in our body language, all with the support of vocalists and many instruments.

(We have pianists bi-weekly, and the Praise Team bi-weekly, making for a great blend of music to proffer our King.)
