Assuming that the guitar amps and bass amp will be providing most of their signal then that should be plenty. What do you have for foldback / monitoring?

That will depend on how you set things up, but with that set up you should be able to get a decent sound in a venue for 60 people fairly easily, just remember that if in doubt, turn everything down and prioritise the lead vocal. :)

I would only put the singers and trumpet through the PA (and, maybe not the trumpet) unless the electric guitars and bass don't have amplifiers. You don't mention what you will be using to mix the mics or, indeed, what mics you have, that might be useful to know, as would the genre.

Your biggest potential problem in a small room (I'm assuming your audience of 60 is not going to be rattling around in a warehouse) is going to be the drums. Drums are loud, drummers who can play well quietly are quite rare. You will probably need to damp the drums and cymbals may need to and insist the drummer uses rods or brushes.

WRT the mix, balance everything else to the vocals as Drew says, and if they are't loud enough turn everything else down. Also your ProL speakers probably won't sound great at max level (which you shouldn't need BTW in your room) so, again turn down if it starts to sound bad.

Without more detail of the rest of your rig (mixer and mics), how you connect it up and what you intend to mic up through the PA it's hard to give good advice. Howovever, how you should set the gain on the speakers depends partly on the mixer but set the mixer gain structure first and then adjust the speaker gain upwards from -∞ until it's loud enough in the room. Speaker eq also depends on the mixer and the room, start with it flat then try altering it and choose the best sounding setting.
