MUSIC has always been
important to believers...
and in this ministry the leadership has purposed to
use only music that exalts the Lord and focuses hearts on Him.
Church adheres to
the old hymns of the faith and Gospel songs which emphasize the
Gospel message and Christ's work for sinners. We do not perform
contemporary Christian music and "Christian" rock.
church choir meets for practice at 6:30 each Wednesday. In the morning
service, the choir sings an opening song and accompanies the congregation;
specials are performed about once a month. Listed in the Constitution of
Grace Bible Church are standards which have to be met in order to be in the
choir - hair, dress, and
moral standards. Also to sing a solo or to be a part of group specials,
either vocal or
instrumental, one has to be a member
of the choir.
The children's choir meets for
practice at 5:30 each Sunday evening under the direction of Mr. Howard Woods.
The youngest children are in K-5 and the oldest are Ninth Grade. They
also perform about once a month.
Bible Church has also recently begun a Church Orchestra. Instruments include
trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and clarinet. Pastor Brainard directs the
orchestra as well as the choir.
