Praise Team

The Praise Team, under the guidance of Ryan Butler, leads our 9:00 a.m. contemporary worship with a wide range of songs utilizing voices and instruments. Our worship sets on Sunday mornings are varied each week… some Sundays will have acoustic-driven worship with perhaps a keyboard, guitar and djembe (African drum), while other Sundays will be a full blown band, driven by electric guitars, bass and drums. Each week, our Praise Team enjoys lifting our voices and instruments together to glorify God!

Musicians Wanted: If you, or someone you know, is an experienced musician who might be willing to serve using your musical gifts at Swift Creek’s 9 a.m. Contemporary Service, we would like to hear from you! The Praise Team, practices each week on Wednesday evenings with vocal rehearsal starting at 6:45 p.m., followed by a full band rehearsal at 7:30 p.m. in the Worship Center.

Please contact Ryan Butler (PraiseTeam@SCPCVA.org) with any candidates. We are in particular need of experienced drummers/percussionists, guitarists, bassists and male vocalists.

Adult Handbell Choir

Practices in the Fall through Spring on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in the music room. The Adult Handbell Choir consists of eleven ringers who have fun while learning new music. The Handbells play during the Prelude, Anthem, and Postlude in the church service. They also enjoy accompanying the hymns. The Handbell Choir usually plays once a month but more often during the Christmas season.
