Our Ministries

Music

At the 10 a.m. service each Sunday the music of Grace finds its primary expression within the framework of the liturgy. Vibrant, beautiful, and meaningful expressions of our Anglican musical resources include psalmody, choir anthems, organ voluntaries, hymns, and other musical settings of liturgical texts. Use of "The Hymnal 1982" allows the congregation to lift up their voices in song.

There are several opportunities for musical ministry at Grace both during and outside of worship:

Chancel Choir

The Grace Chancel Choir, open to singers ninth grade through adult, sings at the Sunday 10 a.m. service from September to May. Special services include an annual Advent service of "Lessons and Carols." Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. and at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays during the school year. Interested singers with some experience in choral music are welcome. If you would like to join the Chancel Choir and have not sung at Grace before, please contact the Music Director, Berkley Guse, on Sunday morning after the service, or by e-mail or phone: (608) 831-7724.

Grace Presents

The architecture of Grace Church makes it a naturally stunning place to listen music. In recognition of the joy of music in this space, the Grace Presents Concert Series was born. Learn more the program and see the current series schedule by visiting the Grace Presents page.

First Monday Meal

The first Monday of every month, members and friends of Grace volunteer to prepare and serve an evening meal to the men staying in Madison's Porchlight Men's Shelter. To accompany the dinner, local musicians provide entertainment. From bluegrass to klezmer to classical, the opportunity to listen to live music is one the men look forward to every month. If you are a soloist or member of a musical group who would like to provide music for a First Monday Meal, please contact Jon Augspurger to learn more about this meaningful opportunity.
