Music Ministry

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO BRAD DAY AND THE ALLEN ORGAN STUDIO IN DELMAR FOR GENEROUSLY DONATIING THE ORGAN PIPE FAÇADE IN OUR SANCTUARY!  

 

ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2019, THE ADULT CHOIR WILL RESUME  REHEARSALS ON THURSDAYS AT 6:45 PM IN THE CHOIR ROOM AT THE CHURCH UNDER THE DIRECTION OF OUR MUSIC         DIRECTOR JUSTAN FOSTER. Warm-ups and rehearsals will also take place on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in the choir room. New members are always welcome, even novices who are willing to learn. Justan is a great teacher and has some exciting plans for our music program.

ORGAN DEDICATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY, 9/22/19.  During worship, beginning at 10:10 AM, we will dedicate our new organ to the glory of God.  As part of this, we will give thanks to the many who helped to make this monumental achievement possible.  At 3:00 PM in the afternoon, a dedicatory recital will take place in the sanctuary featuring music from our choir, a number of organ pieces played by Justan Foster, and the singing of hymns.  Please join us for this very special day!

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL OCCASION OR A LOVED ONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPECIALLY HONOR? Please consider donating a new anthem to our choir as a gift that keeps on giving. While GRC does have a music budget, new choral music can become expensive quickly. The average cost of an anthem is $2 to $5 per copy and we need to order at least 20 copies of each. This means that new choral anthems per year can cost between $400 and $1000. Speak with our Music Director, Justan Foster, if you are interested in providing the congregation with a gift that you and they can enjoy more than once!
