WORSHIP MINISTRY – As Psalm 111:1 declares, "Praise the Lord!  I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the righteous and in the congregation."  That's what our Worship Ministry is all about at PABC - praising the Lord, and helping others come into God's presence through genuine worship.  In addition to leading congregational worship, the PABC Worship Team enjoys sharing songs of Christian faith in community events and ministry outreaches.  We encourage adults and youth who enjoy music- vocalists and instrumentalists, to join us on the PABC Worship Team.  Whatever your favorite style of music is, you will discover our worship expression, with relevant songs of faith and hope in Jesus Christ, to be enjoyable and inspirational.
