Choir at Grace UMC
Grace United Methodist Church has three choirs and an invitation is always extended to anyone and everyone who would like to join us.
rehearses every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
is open to young people, grades 4 through high school, with rehearsals every Thursday,
from 6:30 to 7:00 pm. They sing at the worship service on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
is open to children, ages 4 - grade 3. These children rehearse every Thursday from
6:00 to 6:30 pm, and sing on the 4th Sunday of each month.
An open invitation is always ex-tended to anyone who would be interested in joining the Grace Choir. The excuse most often used is "but I can't sing"... however, when voices join together in a choir, we're not singing as soloists, but as a team...a team who makes wonderful music. So why not give us a try?....share a special fellowship with others, and join us in singing praises to God!
We are happy to welcome the following three new members into the Grace Choir: Joanne Hus (we finally have an alto!), and Kim and Elizabeth Erskine. Elizabeth was been in our children's choir, and has now moved on to our adult choir, and her Mom, Kim, has always sung in our Christmas cantata, and has decided to join us for the whole year. We appreciate their commitment to join us. We will be holding additional rehearsal time
starting on Thursday, October 4, to prepare for our annual Christmas cantata. Our regular choir rehearsal will run from 7:00 to 8:00, and cantata rehearsal will run from 8:00 to 9:00 The cantata "Come, Let Us Adore", will be presented during morning worship on Sunday, December 15. An invitation is always extended to those who cannot make a commitment for a full year, but would like to join with the choir for the Christmas program. We had a wonderful surprise given to us a few weeks ago, when The Bonwin Family presented
our choir with brand new beautiful robes. We are truly grateful for their thoughtfulness and love .

We would love to have more members join our group. We have a wonderful time, and so do the folks in the homes we visit! If you would like to join our group, don't hesitate to speak to me in church or give me a call at (781) 595-0615.
We had a pretty successful season last year with our new arrangement of holding rehearsals following our Sunday Worship Service. We invite all children, ages 4 through grade 8 to go from Sunday School into the choir room for a 15 minute rehearsal, then down to Fellowship Hall for their snacks. The children's choir will sing on the first Sunday of each month at our 10:30 Worship Service. If you have children, please give them the opportunity to participate in the choir; our congregation loves to hear them sing, and in a small way, the children feel that they are offering a special gift to our church family.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak with Barbara Moore any Sunday, or give her a call at (781) 595-0615.
