At Greystone, music is ministry. It is the ministry of worship leadership; the ministry of teaching; the ministry of encouragement.
Music Ministry at GBC
The Bible calls us to
“let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs; singing with thankfulness in your heart to God.” Colossians 3:16
To fulfill this call, we offer the following opportunities:
The Adult Choir provides worship leadership for our weekly Sunday morning services. They assist with leading the congregation in singing and offer choral anthems to enhance our worship experience. Seasonally, the choir will take part in Christmas and Easter musical presentations and, at times, other concerts during the year. While music-making and singing are vital to this ministry, other values include fellowship and discipleship. In all, the growth of the singer is what moves this ministry forward.
Our Adult Choir rehearses in the sanctuary on Wednesday nights from 7:15-8:45pm, masked and distanced. Please email Christian for more information!
Students participating in our Youth Choir have the opportunity to sing with the during select Sunday morning worship services and special events throughout the year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Youth Choir is currently meeting as a part of our regular Sunday evening youth time from 6-7pm in the picnic area near the Lead Mine Rd. parking lot. Members remain masked and distanced while participating. Please email Christian for more information!
Grace Tones Ensemble
The Grace Tones is an ensemble of 10 – 12 adult women singing SSA and SSAA arrangements of a wide variety of music. Arrangements include music from traditional choral expressions, spirituals, gospel music, and contemporary Christian groups such as Point of Grace. We also have fun singing secular arrangements for special occasions.
In addition to church services, Grace Tones has performed for special services, retirement homes, other churches’ special occasions, holiday affairs, etc. If you are interested in joining the ensemble, please contact the director, Tim Hendrix, to see if there is an available vacancy. Members should be good readers, able to harmonize and blend with other voices, and passionate about singing & having a good time! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Grace Tones Ensemble rehearsals have been intermittent.
Our K-5 Children’s Choir has opportunities to sing at special services throughout the year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Children’s Choir currently meets outside in the picnic area near the Lead Mine Rd. parking lot as part of their regular Sunday School time (10:45-11:45pm on Sunday mornings). Please email Christian for more information!
The Handbell Choir performs in worship services throughout the year, and our repertoire includes music on level 2-4. The Handbell Choir rehearses on Sunday evenings from 5-6pm in the music room, masked and distanced. Please email Christian for more information!
The keyboardists for our services are members who volunteer to play on a rotating basis. Those playing band and orchestral instruments contribute through solos and duets and accompanying the choir and congregation. As noted above, we also have a Handbell Choir that meets weekly and plays in services as scheduled. If you have instrumental music gifts that you’d be willing to share with the congregation, please email Christian!
