Ministries / Music


    The music ministry at Grace Immanuel serves and leads the congregation each week in corporate worship. For more information about the ministry opportunities available, see below.



    The rhythm band is the core of the music ministry at Grace Immanuel. Band and vocalists lead worship weekly in both morning and evening services as part of a rotation. All players and singers must have an exemplary testimony of purity and humility as leaders on the platform, as well as demonstrating a high degree of musical proficiency. Instrumentalists must be able to read chord charts and lead sheets. 



    The orchestra ministers in the morning service once a month, as well as playing for special events. Players must demonstrate proficiency on an orchestral instrument. Nursery is available as part of our regular schedule. Rehearsals are Wednesdays, 6:30-8 PM.



    The choir ministers weekly in the morning worship services and is involved in other special worship services and events throughout the year, as well as presenting a full-scale concert series for Christmas.  Members commit on a semester basis. An informal interview is required. Rehearsals are on Thursdays, 6:30-8 PM.



    The Grace Chorale is an auditioned group of singers who also serve in other aspects of the music ministry. Members must demonstrate a high level of musicianship, the ability to read music, and proficiency in independent part-singing. The Chorale leads morning worship once a month and sings in special events. Rehearsals are Thursdays, 8-9:15 PM.



    The AV ministry serves a vital role in sending and producing sound and video for weekly services, as well as special events and other needs throughout the church. Team members must demonstrate faithfulness, godly conduct, and a willingness to be taught, as well as a familiarity with technology. 



    The handbell choir ministers in morning and evening worship services as scheduled and is involved in other special worship services and events throughout the year. Experienced new ringers are always welcomed as vacancies in the group occur. Introductory classes are periodically available for those who are interested in ringing, but who have had little to no experience. 



    The graded children's choir program is open to 6-year-olds through 8th grade whose parents attend Grace Immanuel. There are four ensembles: Pre-Choir (must be 6 years old by September 10th), Junior Choir (must be 7 years old by September 10th-3rd grade), Intermediate Choir (4th-8th grade), and Youth Choir (young men whose voices have changed). At present, high school girls are welcome to join Intermediate Choir to help mentor young singers. Students learn doctrine through hymns, music literacy, and principles of good singing. They also minister periodically in the morning and evening services and participate in the Christmas Concert. Registration is required. Rehearsals are Sunday evenings, 6:30-7:30 PM (during the evening service). For more information, contact the church office.
