Worship Arts at Grantham Church
The music and worship arts ministries of Grantham Church exist to bring honor and glory to God. We believe God has provided the way for a relationship with Him through the sacrifice of his son, Jesus. We celebrate and thank God in a variety of ways.
We use music, arts, song, prayer, silence, communion, testimony, drama, Scripture, and the words of those around us to glorify and honor God. We believe that we become like what we worship. And we believe that as we encounter the transforming presence of God in corporate worship, we are then sent out to carry His reconciling presence into our world.
A collective of musicians, tech volunteers, and Scripture readers that help lead our congregation in faithful and heartfelt worship. In particular, we are looking for more volunteers to run projection and sound.
All our welcome to sing in the choir in our Sunday morning worship service on Dec. 24. Choir rehearsals will be Nov. 29, Dec. 6, and Dec. 20 from 6:30-7:30 pm. Please RSVP to Pastor David Perry to participate.
