In worship, music is not something only a few gifted people do; it’s an expression of joy for the entire congregation as we sing together great hymns of the faith old and new. In truth, there is no more special music than the music of the congregation.
The music of Grace Presbyterian’s choir is both a gift from and an offering to God. We dedicate the gift of song to the glory of God.
Sanctuary Choir – open to all interested high school/college students and adults – rehearses the 1st and 3rd Wednesday nights (7:00-8:30 p.m.) in the choir room located behind the sanctuary. An optional rehearsal time is Sunday morning’s, 10:15-11:00 in preparation for weekly worship services. Additionally, the choir provides music and worship leadership for seasons and services such as Advent, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, Pentecost, and All Saints.
If you play an instrument and would like to play in accompaniment to worship or with the choir, please contact Leslie Poss: email@example.com
Handbell Choir: This group is open to high school and adult ringers. It’s rehearsal schedule is Sunday afternoons, 2:00, September-May. You don’t have to read music to join this group but some basic music reading skills are very helpful. The group plays for worship 6-7 times a year.
Children’s Choir: Our children’s choir: K-5th Grades, rehearses on a rotating schedule during the school year. They meet Sunday mornings, 9:30-10:00. This group frequently sings in worship and for special services such as: Children’s Sabbath, Christmas, Palm Sunday, and Easter.
Visual and Dramatic Arts
Visual and Dramatic Arts are incorporated into the worship and life of Grace Presbyterian Church in a variety of ways. Most weeks there is a visual arrangement for Sunday worship. In an effort to capture the day’s worship theme, this visual goes far beyond traditional flower arrangements. During the major liturgical seasons of Advent, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost the Creative Worship Team constructs dramatic visual aids for the sanctuary. Additionally, the congregation creates and displays an annual Stations of the Cross; we add dramatic readings and scenes into worship; and encourage original works of art for our bulletin covers. As much as possible we seek to engage our five senses in worship and for special services.
