Music Ministry

Grace Covenant’s music ministry has a place for anyone who wishes to learn, grow, serve, and praise God in song. Come, make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

About the Music Ministry

As an integral part of worship, Grace Covenant enjoys the rich talents of many as singers, handbell ringers, and instrumentalists throughout the year. In keeping with the rich tradition and heritage of musical excellence at GCPC, this ministry endeavors to offer learning opportunities for all who participate in the program.

Learn more about our choirs and offerings below. Contact our Director of Music, Chris Martin with your interest in involvement or other questions.

*Singing choirs for both adults and children are temporarily suspended because of COVID-19. The Handbell Choir will continue to rehearse and perform regularly in worship this season.
