Music helps to evoke and enhance worshippers’ consciousness of the reality and grace of God. The voices of the children “making a joyful noise,” the offerings of our youth and adult musicians, and the contemplative music from the piano and pipe organ all play a part in providing the music that is so integral to our worship experience.
Congregational, soloists & ensembles, the bell choir, the children and adult chancel choirs, guest musicians, and other instrumental solos add to the foundations of piano and pipe organ to make for a rich diversity of musical worship. GPC intentionally seeks to offer opportunities for our members and children to participate in worship by offering their musical talents regardless if you are young pianist or a professional musician.
The Chancel Choir sings weekly during the Sunday morning worship from September through May. A large repertoire of classic as well as more contemporary songs is enjoyed. Cantatas are offered in worship as highlights of the Lent and Advent seasons. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 and you are welcome to join in the singing!
The GPC Bell Choir involves ringers of all ages and skills in a lovely, fun, and accessible musical experience. The Bell Choir participates regularly in Sunday morning worship. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 5:45 to 6:15.
The Children’s and Youth Choirs sing occasionally in regular Sunday worship services. The children practice on Sunday mornings at 9:15 and are amazing!
