Music Ministry

 

THE ADULT CHOIR REHEARSES ON THURSDAYS AT 6:45 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. For those of you who have pondered the idea of joining the choir, now is a good time to act on that thought!  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.

 

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 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 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!

FAMILY SING SUNDAY-Come one, come all, any talent level, any age to sing! During the Ministry of Music on Sunday, 10/22, those who are a part of this choir will present an easy to learn choral selection.  For those who would like to participate, you will need to participate in the rehearsals our Music Director, Justan Foster, will lead at 9:45 to 10:00 AM on Sunday October 8th,15th, and 22nd.  This is open to anyone who would like to sing.  The song will not be complicated.
