Music prepares us to come into the throne room of our God and King. God uses music to stir and soften hearts to be receptive to His Spirit. Music is an important aspect of worship; it lifts us into His presence.
At Grace Lutheran, we have a vibrant music ministry offering many opportunities to aid in worship and outreach. Our musical ministry offerings include adult choir, hand bells, praise teams, vocal and instrumental solos, and various other ways to spread the gospel message through music.
For more information about our music program, please contact our director, Levana James.
Adult Music Ministry Teams
The adult choir rehearses Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. The choir season runs from September through May. The choir offers ministry support during worship services and outreach to our community. You are welcome to join at any time.
For members high school age to adult, our bell choir participates in worship services spanning September through May. This group meets in the bell room in the annex building on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. We also occasionally work on material for bell festivals or special events in the neighborhood.
Adult Praise Band
Vocalists and instrumentalists, in a contemporary style, meet every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. to prepare for 10:45 a.m. Sunday services. This music team meets year round.
This choir has two seasons a year—Advent/Christmas spanning November through December and Lent/Easter starting just before Ash Wednesday and continuing through Easter Sunday. The festival choir is comprised of adult choir members and others who may prefer short-term involvement.
Singers and instrumentalists from the congregation and school offer their musical gifts throughout the year. Opportunities include canting at traditional services, singing or playing as soloists or in small groups, and adding depth to choirs and the praise band.
Children’s Music Ministry Teams
Junior Youth Praise Team
Our junior youth praise team learns to sing and play instruments to prepare to lead others in worship. Praise songs are the center of this team’s ministry. It’s a lot of fun! Practice is on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school during the school year.
During the school year, our children’s bell choir and children’s chimers have scheduled rehearsals on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
