The music of Grace Avenue United Methodist Church encompasses a wide range of genres and ages. In our traditional and contemporary worship services, we have developed an authentic style that is uniquely Grace Avenue. God's love is shared by the most willing of hearts through Heart and Soul, our school of creative arts, all of our children's choirs, youth choir, adult choir, Saturday evening worship band, and our very own Grace Avenue Band.


This is our school of creative arts which offers private and group lessons for all ages. The mission of Heart & Soul Academy is to connect and nurture the creative image of God that lives inside every person.

We are revising and expanding the Grace Avenue Heart & Soul Creative Arts Academy in the fall of 2014! We would love your input on what interests you! Please CLICK HERE to take a survey and help us plan!

Grace Avenue has always had a commitment to musical excellence and the adult choir is the heart of the program. Since its inception, the choir has grown from 12 to over 50 singers, who enjoy leading worship for our dynamic congregation.

The Adult Choir is a supportive fellowship of friends who have become family.  Through this family there are
opportunities for spiritual, personal and musical growth. We are always open to new members.
