Music at Grace makes community, proclaims the Good News, taps into our God-given creative gifts and enhances the teachings of our faith. We worship in a variety of musical styles and we have fun! If you enjoy making music and would like to participate, contact our Director of Music and Arts Ministries.


Adult Choir

Sings at 10:30 am worship services on Sundays from mid-September through May and occasional extra services. While we encourage weekly participation, seasonal singers are welcome. Some music reading skills are helpful

Bells of Grace


Consists of 15-20 ringers who ring at 9:00 and 10:30 am worship approximately 7 times per year. Experience is not necessary, but music reading skills are helpful.

Crossfire Youth Choir

Includes students in grades 6-12 rehearses on Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:30. We sing in morning worship services six or seven times annually, at AdventFest, Nine Lessons and Carols in December, and Celebration of the Arts in May.

Children’s Music Classes & Choirs

Two faith-based music classes encourage children to explore the world of singing and musical instruments and enjoy God’s gift of music:
Joyful Noise (age 3 by September 1 through kindergarten)
Rejoice! (grade 1 through grade 5)

Classes meet Wednesdays during the school year from 5:00-5:45 pm
Participants sing occasionally during 9 AM worship.

Other Musical Opportunities

Vocal and instrumental ensembles appear regularly in our 9:00 and 10:30 services allowing a broad group of music makers to participate without a regular rehearsal commitment.

Each year early in May, Grace offers “A Celebration of the Arts” where participants of all ages are welcome to share their God-given gifts in performing and visual arts. During Lent, Grace invites the community to participate in our regional ecumenical choir to sing, learn, and grow. This annual program culminates in a musical meditation, preparing us for Holy Week and Easter joy.

Grace Music Camp

This summer, from June 24-27, Grace Lutheran Church is thrilled to offer hearts, hands and voices Worship and Fine Arts Day Camp (9AM-3PM) for children entering grades 2-8 to grow spiritually and musically in a safe and welcoming environment. Click here for more information.

Music & Our Community

Our staff and volunteer musicians provide occasional faith-based musical performances for nursing homes. Themed programs include sacred and secular music and some hymns that spread joy.
