I am very excited to be working with the Hillview United Methodist Praise Band.   What a core group of committed individuals, committed to each other as well as to our church community.  You see the ones in the front of the church, but don't forget our sound board staff and families helping us to   be able to rehearse together, to be a   part of worship at HUMC.

I look forward to the growth of the group.   There is room for more vocalists as well as instrumentalists, will you be one of those people?  There is a need for some equipment  to help allow the message to be shared such as various percussion mallets, electric keyboards, and  monitor speakers.   The 4 newly donated wireless mics and sound board are great additions,  I hope there will be a need for more.

As we grow our repertoire to share with you, we    encourage you to make these songs your own. As Psalm 33 teaches, "Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous.....play skillfully, and shout for joy"!!!
