Music in Worship

MusicMusic plays an important role in worship at Grace Church. Our choirs, soloists, organists, and other musicians offer an inspirational dimension to our worship and help to support congregational singing. Under the direction of our Minister of Music and Organist, the music ministry provides opportunities for those who feel called to sing, spreading God’s message of peace and goodness through their music, to develop a confidence in singing and to find a personal spiritual connection in church music as they share their gifts.

Grace Church has choirs for all age groups that provide music in worship throughout the entire year.

The Chancel Choir: Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm Rehearsals (September to May) The Chancel Choir is made up of youth and adults and serves as the principal musical leadership for the 10:00 a.m. worship experience at Grace. The choir also presents several concerts each season for the Grace community and the city of Baltimore including a major choral work for Good Friday and Sunday afternoon concerts. All are welcome and no audition is necessary.

Grace’s Soloists add a special dimension, individually and together, to the music at worship as well as concerts. The soloists are available to sing for weddings and funerals as well.

The Handbell Choir: Mondays, 7 pm Rehearsals The Handbell Choir is open to youth and adults and plays at Christmas and Easter. The choir is always looking for new members. All are welcome to join; some music reading experience is necessary.

The Youth Choir: Sundays, 11:15 a.m. to 12:00 pm Rehearsals (September to May) The Youth Choir, grades 7 through 12 is directed by Mr. Robert Cantrell. The choir sings several times throughout the year and often combines forces with the Chancel Choir in special services and concerts.

The Sunday School Choir, 10:45 to 11:25 am Rehearsals (September to May) The Sunday School Choir, children in grades 2 through 6 is directed by Mairin Srygley.
