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!
The Grace Choir has completed another ten months of singing for us and for the Lord, and they are looking forward to having a few weeks off from Thursday night rehearsals! I truly appreciate their dedication and faith. Special music will be provided during the summer months, and if you know anyone who would like to be part of this, we'd love to have them. The Children's Choir finished their season on Childrens' Day, and they did an awesome job singing about 'friendship'.
We have had a very busy season visiting various nursing homes twice a month, even through the winter. The residents at the homes look forward to our visits, and we thoroughly enjoy being there and having them join us as we all sing the 'old songs'...
We already have our summer schedule in place as follows:
July 13: Putnam Farm in Danvers
August 3: Artis Senior Living in Reading
August 31: Seasons of Danvers
Sept. 7: Artis Senior Living in Reading
Sept. 14 Putnam Farm in Danvers
We're happy to have welcomed four new singers to our group this year, and there is always an open invitation for others to join us. Our visits are always on Saturday afternoons and they last about 45 minutes.
If you're interested in being part of our group, see me in church or call me at (781) 5950615. I guarantee you'll have a smile on your face when you leave after one of these visits!
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.
