Chancel Choir

GPC is a singing church! Our Chancel Choir enthusiastically leads the congregation in hymns and responses; also enriches the worship experience through sacred octavos, solos and ensembles, both instrumental and vocal. Whether the music is classical or current,  we always seek to touch the hearts and minds of those who listen.  Trained and non-trained musicians alike are welcomed into our “choir family”!  For we learn together, laugh together, and support each other as we rehearse each Wednesday, September through May, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  Expect to enjoy singing in this fun group of dedicated individuals!  *Child care is available upon request! 

   “Summer Singers” meet at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, June through August.  Visitors and seasonal singers in attendance on any given Sunday provide beloved hymns of faith and simple anthems throughout the summer. If you can “carry a tune” and like to sing, there is a place for you in this GPC Choir!  This is stress-free joy!

GPC Hand-Bell Choir

This young-adult to adult group rehearses at 5:30 p.m. most Mondays from September to May.  Directed by Marcy Carl, these ringers provide music during selected Sunday services.  On occasion they also accompany the Chancel Choir, especially for seasonal anthems. There are three octaves of bells to ring, which means new volunteers are always welcome!  Like the Chancel Choir, the membership consists of both trained and non-trained musicians.  Come ring with us!  No previous experience is required.  Contact Marcy through the church office.

Children's Music Programs -
Music Makers!

A new musical experience is offered for Fall, 2021.  Traditionally, the halls would

be filled with sounds of children singing on Wednesday afternoons.  This year we offer creative and fun alternative to Children’s Choir for youngsters ages 3 to 10.  The Fellowship Hall becomes the center of activity, where music meets mind and rhythm rules!  Each class offers children the opportunity to learn some basics of music through a fun-filled session that includes creative group activities, fun games, color-coded handbells and more!  Your child may even master the art of making music with a “boomwhacker”!  (Come check it out! )  A light snack is provided.  Contact Marcy for additional information.
