Worship is at the Heart of Grace Church.

Four weekly services (three on Sunday morning, one on Monday evening) and special services throughout the year provide plenty of opportunities to enrich your faith.

Organists, instrumentalists, musicians, choirs, ushers, and greeters visibly serve in worship. Behind the scenes, a tech crew for Internet service broadcasts, altar guild, nursery staff, and more all come together to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ each week.

Want to get involved? To see how you can use your God-given gifts during worship, contact Carolyn Schulz at mail@gracedowntown.org.

Grace Choir

The Grace Choir is the main choir for congregational worship and sings two Sunday mornings per month from September through May. They also prepare for a popular service of Lessons and Carols each year for Advent and Holy Week services.

  Time: 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and occasionally 7:45 a.m. worship services; rehearsals are on Thursdays at 7 p.m. for an hour or more, with some Thursdays are off.

  Place: Rehearsals are in the Trinity Room, below the Grace sanctuary.

To get involved, contact Music Minister Kevin Becker at kbecker@gracedowntown.org.

Ensemble Singers for Monthly Alternative Services

A mixed group (SATB) of four singers leads the congregation through the alternative services held on the first Sunday of each month. Currently, we have four ensembles involved that rotate based on their personal schedules. Rehearsals are scheduled by the group leaders and usually require only a little practice before Sunday morning.

  Time: All Sunday morning services (7:45, 9, and 10:30 a.m.), but not Monday night.

  Place: Rehearsals are in the Trinity Room, below the Grace sanctuary.

To get involved, contact Music Minister Kevin Becker at kbecker@gracedowntown.org.

The Women’s Choir is scheduled three or four times a year to prepare the psalm, verse and an anthem for their Sunday. All who can sing are welcome.

Greeters

Instrumentalists

Grace has been blessed with many talented instrumentalists: men and women who play the organ, brass, string and woodwind instruments, guitars, percussion–and all of them are put to good use in our worship. Most of the instrumentalists invited to play are active players, meaning they’ve continued to hone their skills since completing their eduaction. They also receive an honorarium that recognizes their effort to be skilled players.   Place: Grace Church To get involved, contact Music Minister Kevin Becker at kbecker@gracedowntown.org.

Communion Setup

Work behind the scenes on a two-person team that sets up and dismantles the communion table, refreshes the elements between services and changes the altar paraments in conjunction with the church year. Training only takes an hour. Members serve on an annual, one-month rotation.   Place: Grace Church To get involved, contact mail@gracedowntown.org.

Nursery Staff

From 8:45 – 10:15am on Sunday mornings, the nursery for 0-3 year-olds is staffed for parents involved in worship or Bible class. A modest honorarium is given to recognize the importance of a nursery that gives parents comfort and confidence in the care of their children.   Place: Parish Center Nursery To get involved, contact mail@gracedowntown.org.

Grace Place Coffee Server

If you are looking for opportunities to serve at your congregation, consider service at Grace Place Coffee! You may have enjoyed the convenience of a beverage or snack between Bible study and worship on Sundays in the past, and we really need you more than ever!
