Music and Choirs (Identity)
Music is a large part of Grace. The organ is an M.P. Möller with 4 manuals, 48 ranks and lots of pipes, from tiny flutes to 32′ bass (for you organ geeks; and yes, your bottom will vibrate in the pew!) Grace has three choirs and music is the foundation of Grace’s worship services.
Chancel Choir – the chancel choir rehearses on Thursday nights from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. (with parties following every other month); vests (robes) and sings for the formal worship service, and occasionally processes (on special Sundays). Contact David Sparkes, Lead Musician
Grace Notes Choir – everyone is invited to be part of a “pick-up” choir called the Grace Notes Choir to enhance our informal worship. A very singable piece of music will be rehearsed on informal worship Sundays at 9:30 a.m., before the morning worship and then sung during the Offertory. Contact Erika Popp
Grace Handbell Choir – Grace’s Handbell Choir consists of a 5 octave set of Schulmerich Handbells and tone chimes. The bell choir rehearses on Monday nights from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. and plays during worship once a month from September – May (with the exception of January). You don’t need to read music to be a ringer, just show up on a Monday night prepared to have some fun! Contact Gayle Klaber.
