“Open the gates of justice! I will enter and tell the Lord how thankful I am.” Psalm 118:19
In America, the topic of race continues to be difficult to discuss in many social settings. Very few Christian churches are leading bold and courageous conversations, engaging in direct social activism, and participating in civil disobedience as a way to bring attention to and disrupt racist systems and structures.
The call to be a multiracial and multicultural church is an acknowledgement that racial justice is the inclusiveness of all humans and never excludes anyone based on skin color, culture or ethnic origin. The United Church of Christ stands in solidarity with the creation narrative in Genesis 1:26-27, which clearly outlines what matters to God—all of humankind and a just world for all. God created humankind in God’s image and likeness, women and men are image bearers, sharing equal status as human beings. God did not create race, racism, superior groups of humans, and hierarchical and hegemonic social structures.
The music ministry at Grace UCC is open to persons of all ages. There are opportunites for children to sing, for youth to play instruments in the Praise Band and for anyone to sing with us in the Praise and Worship Team. The style of music ranges from traditional to contemporary with many types of music in-between as well. All music is chosen to complement the parts of the service or the theme each Sunday.
Singers, instrumentalists and children united to present a celebration of music on the Sunday that Gethsemane UCC and Evangel UCC merged to become one church, Grace UCC.
The Praise and Worship Team has fellowship together after rehearsal.
Our college students add their instrumental talents whenever possible.
The children sing and play instruments to honor God on Rally Day.
Jesus said "Let the little children come unto me." The youngest members of Grace come up front to sing "Jesus Loves Me" in a medley of songs sung with the choir in the anthem "Be Like a Child" written by Grace music director, Lisa Jastram. Jimmy the puppet sang along.
Instrumentalists for the praise music are the wonderfully talented Jaime, Rajinee, Paulo and Kaleb.
