Music is a vital component of all of Palma Ceia’s worship services and a ministry within our community. PCPC offers many ways to share someone’s talents or teach and nurture new gifts through our choirs and ensembles. Palma Ceia is blessed to have a Casavant Organ in our sanctuary to accompany the Traditional music ministries and a rockin praise band to accompany our Contemporary service.

Adult Choir, open to all adults wishing to participate in the Traditional Music Program of our church
Children in 2nd-5th grade make up this ensemble lead by Nancy Callahan and assisted by Ashley Greenfield. This choir sings approximately 10-12 times during the year mainly in the 11am Traditional Service. The students become worship leaders through singing, they also learn rhythm, sing in parts and sight sing.
