Need a name for worship Band

Hey,
We recently started having worship services for our youth group on friday's, The youth pastor here has named it Friday Night Alternative, and dubbed the praise band the F.N.A. Band. well say that a little fast and you get the pic. So we need to change it. We want something that has to do with FIRE and ELECTRICITY. The way we play the music is more of an Alternative Rock feel most of the time, then we can get very worshipful. Any help would be good.

Peace........... out

Band Name

We just started a Band here at our church and we struggled for a long time on a name. We wanted something catchy but something that also focused on God. We came up with "RISEN"

Hopw this helps.

hmmm...I have found that the naming of the band is a very tedious yet probably the most fun part of it aside from the very worshiping itself. I dont know very much about electricity in the bible but I know of a lot about fire. Probably the first thing that came into my mind was the story about the firery furnace. That is in Daniel 3. The best thing to do I would guess would be to get the entire group together, tell em to bring their bibles and look up various scriptures that may have to do with fire or maybe even their most favorite and then pick maybe two or three words that would set the mindset for sure that your name came from that verse. For instance, Third Day. Those two words put in your mind exactly where it came from. Or maybe a phrase. For instance, the name I have come up with that would be awesome for a P & W band comes from my most favorite story in the bible. Peter's denial of Christ. Hence Thrice Denied. I also have a company Thrice Denied Unlimited that I use to copyright my songs and poems and stories all christian based and all original. But thats beyond the point. Names are difficult to come up with but when you hit it, you'll know it.

Thanks,

I can undersand your dilemma because I, too am in a nameless worship band. We've been given all kinds of suggestions, from the very good to the very bad.

-------------

Mrahhh - because one of our bandmembers can sing like Creed

Polyester

Bloody Sheep - because we're covered in Christ's blood, or something

Zenith - "highest point"

Asphixiation - I don't know, this guy is weird.

The Tonedefs - A cross between the Supertones and the Deftones

Amorphous - Literally "without form." "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world. . ."

-----------------

Enjoy, or throw vegitables.

I'm actually in the same dilemma..... our praise band has been around for well over a year and we still don't have a name. At our last "gig", we got dubbed The Unknowns.

Our praise band has managed to go for...5 years now without a name, I think. At least that...they might have been around before I started college, but I don't think so. Although the first year I was there, the band leader's last name was Moore, so some people called them ******* Moore and the Distance (name withheld to protect the innocent)

My personal favorite is "The Band" in worship situations. That's the least distracting. Next closest to that is "_______ ________ and the band" with the blanks filled by the leader's first and last name, but that's a distant second.

If you're still into the fire and electricity thing, I'd go with "Plasma."

It's a state of matter (like solid, liquid, or gas) that has to be extremely hot (moreso than fire) to exist, and it's on the cutting edge of superconducting (electricity) research.

That's my input.....

Why not a name that stands up and proudly reflects the history of our faith...I like "Killing for Jesus" myself.
