Music

They shall have music wherever they go!

All About Us!

We have a dynamic and varied musical ministry. Our worship services include a blended style of music, including brass, classical, contemporary, ethnic, gospel and spirituals. In addition to offering music in worship, our choirs and musicians have special programs such as community concerts, madrigal dinners, Christmas caroling, and music groups at our Welcome Table and Fall Festival.

 

There are three choirs in which you can participate – Chancel Choir (for 11 a.m. service), Handbell Choir, and Children’s Choir (Kids Sing). Vocal and instrumental soloists are always welcome to share their talents in worship. Gathering music for the 11 a.m. service is contemporary praise and worship songs featuring guitar, djembe drum, and piano. Contact Music Director Kevin Bryant (musicdirector@groceumc.org) to schedule your music and worship date.

We also are happy to feature worship dance and special visiting musical groups on occasion. If you’d like to be a part of any of these choirs or offer music in worship, please contact Kevin at musicdirector@groceumc.org.

The music programs help fulfill Groce UMC’s mission of building the family of God through praising God, bringing others to Christ, teaching the faith, strengthening the fellowship, and sending forth in service.

Fall Festival

In conjunction with the Nurture committee, we provide a variety of music and dancing at the annual Fall Festival. Soloists, bands, drumlines, clogging troops, and more entertain everyone with their lively music!

The Madrigal Dinner

In 2018, we hosted a two-night show (with a matinee on Saturday) that showcased the magic and spirit of the Christmas season. Directed by our Associate Pastor, Andrea McCumber, we dramatized John Wesley's Christmas Story through good food, laughter, song, and dance!
