Sunday Morning Worship

When? 8:50am and 11:05amworship1

8:50am service: A service led by Praise Team (contemporary music.) Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of every month.

10am Education Hour: Sunday School for ages 3 through adult. Welcome Table volunteers will tell you where to find classes for adults, youth and children.

11:05am Service: Chancel Choir leads this more traditional service. Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of every month.

Heartland Hall: Join us for coffee in between the two services or grab a cup of coffee on your way to Sunday School class. Heartland Hall is located next to the Sanctuary. There are always people to visit with or things to learn about if you want to just hang out.

MUSIC AT GCPC

Music is one of the very best ways we pray. Grace Covenant celebrates God’s gift of music with 16 ensembles encompassing all ages. Handbell choirs, instrumental ensembles and various vocal choirs provide amazing opportunities for all ability levels. The enormous effort and volunteer hours in this ministry are second to none, and yet GCPC music is not about “performance.”

Our goal is to
“offer our gifts in collaboration with the creative power of God in order to
make music that will inspire wonder and create a space in the listener for a
soul-transforming encounter with the goodness, truth and beauty found
in the Divine Love of God.”
(composer James McMillan)

We create the most beautiful music we can because God is worthy of our best efforts. There are no auditions. ALL are invited to participate.

CHILDREN’S MUSIC

Children’s music programs teach age-appropriate musical skills and knowledge, celebrate faith through music and provide fun fellowship. Our bell choirs are especially good for learning the basics of music.

YOUTH CHOIRS and YOUTH BAND MUSIC PICTURE TO REPLACE KC SLUGGER VERSION 2

Youth choirs and ensembles encourage reaching out to lead worship and to comfort others with the power of music. Our middle schoolers use
their musical talents to fund raise for others. High school mission trips include taking music to places in need of comfort and community. Our high school Youth Band plays in worship services at our church, and at events throughout the Kansas City area.

ADULT PROGRAMS

Adult programs provide weekly worship leadership in two styles and special music for important times in the church calendar. There are opportunities for everyone from beginners to professional musicians. We involve many non-musical volunteers to keep our enormous program organized and filled with love.

FOR MORE INFORMATION

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which
it is impossible to be silent.”
(Victor Hugo)

This ministry touches every single member of our church family. Whether we sing from the choir loft, ring from a table or sing in the most important choir of all—the one sitting in the pews–all of us are transformed and lifted to God in sacred sound.

If you would like to know more about the Grace Covenant music ministry, please contact Rebecca Prater.
