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!
Although December seems a long way from now, the choir will start rehearsals for their Christmas cantata (a worship service in song) on the first Thursday in October. An invitation is always extended to newcomers to join our choir, but we understand the commitment of attending rehearsals for an entire year. Rehearsals for this special program will run from October 5 through mid-December, a total of only 12 weeks. The time of rehearsals will be from 7:00 to 7:45 each Thursday evening in the choir room. A special invitation is extended to those who would like to join us for that short period of time, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus in worship and song.
The Cantata, "Love Came Down", will be presented at the morning worship service on Sunday, December 17th. Come and be part of the choir for that great celebration! Feel free to talk to Barbara or call her at (781) 595-0615 with any questions
A special thanks to all who have participated in our new venture of taking our love of music into nursing homes and assisted living homes. We had between twelve and fourteen singers who visited the Chelsea Jewish Life Care Home in August, and Brookdale Home in September. We have one more date set...October 28...at Artis Senior Living in Reading. In November we will be returning to some of these homes to share some Christmas music. We could see the joy on patients' faces when they would recognize some of the songs and even join in...but more than that...we could feel the joy in our hearts, as they would sing along with us, and say 'thank you' over and over as we entertained them. It is truly a wonderful gift to everyone involved. We have only one rehearsal before each performance, so for October, the rehearsal will be SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22, at 4:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, and our performance will be on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, at 2:00 in Reading (carpooling from the church will be available). Please join us, and see how much happiness you will share in one hour!
