Come and Worship
It’s no secret that COVID-19 is in our community – where ever you are as you read this! SO, while we are offering in-person worship 9:30 A.M. Sunday mornings be wise for your own situation and health. We are committed to having a continuing worship experience online, Sunday mornings via live-stream at 9:30 AM, also on SMU and on KICD as “Catch the Spirit” Sunday mornings at 9:07 AM. IF you attend in-person worship, it will be slightly different. Please, at worship and all other times when you are out and about, wear your mask and keep social distance. Short of being quarantined in the house, that’s the best way to encourage that we will have in-person worship going forward…
Sunday worship begins at 9:30 AM. Worship is held in the sanctuary for about sixty minutes.
Grace is located at 311 2nd Ave, across from the courthouse, in Spencer.
Refreshments are not being served at this time.
If you’re wondering, most people dress casually. Please, as if you are able, wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Music is and always has been important in the worship of God. You are welcome to sing/mumble/hum along (behind your mask) or just enjoy the music. Grace Church utilizes traditional and more contemporary music, vocal choirs and bell choirs, and don’t be surprised if a trumpet or even a instrumental band shows up! All participation expected from the people is projected on the big screen. The message lasts around 20-25 minutes. Announcements are at the end of the service.
The nursery is not being offered at this time.
The Chancel Choir is open to anyone 9th grade on up, but at this time is not meeting. Before [and after!] COVID this group sings two Sundays a month, usually the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 6:35 PM during the school year.
Currently, we are scheduling up to 4 specified ‘singers’ the 2nd and 4th Sundays to provide the vocals for all worship songs. These singers do not need to be 4-part SATB. They just need to enjoy singing! If you want to provide vocals for a Sunday, contact the church office. These singers are well-separated from the gathered, distanced, people.
The Bell Choir performs every three to six weeks In worship. This group will begin rehearsals, probably Wednesday evenings, the beginning of October. If interested, contact the church office. rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:30 PM.
Both the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir welcome new musicians. Seasonally we have also birthed an instrumental (concert) band.
There’s always room for more and varied praise. Persons are encouraged to invite friends and associates to consider enhancing the worship experience with music, drama, testimony…
