SERVE is one of the five core values at Grace. It is one of the ways in which God grows and shapes us as we sacrifice time, energy and abilities to benefit others. Whether we serve at a soup kitchen, in a child’s Sunday School class, or as a choir or band member, when it is done in God’s name, it become holy and an act of worship.
At Grace, we invite people to serve and share their gifts in worship. Choirs, ushers, communion helpers, and liturgical arts designers are just a few different venues in which we ask people to consider serving. Perhaps you come to Grace with lots of experience in serving in worship ministries and you are already sure where you want to serve. Others might not be sure and would love to speak with someone to learn more about the various opportunities. No matter where you might be, the following lists of opportunities and contact information might help you decide where you want to serve.
The Grace Choir is a group of people who enjoy traditional sacred choral and liturgical music, loves to sing together, and is committed to leading worship at our Sunday morning traditional services. The director of the Adult is Doreen Hutchings.
This group of excited music lovers lead worship at our contemporary worship services. The style of music is more of a contemporary praise variety you might hear on the radio.
There are other occasional musical opportunities for those who have musical gifts but do not have the time for a weekly rehearsal schedule. Brass Ensembles, Christmas and Easter Choirs, and solo opportunities are offered on a regular basis. If you are interested for more information, please contact Jonathan Orwig.
Rockin’ Kids Bible Club encourages children to grow in faith through music, worship, games and lessons at this high energy kids club. During the Rockin Kids Club meeting, they learn music which will be sung during Sunday morning services on a regular basis.
