Adult Ensembles | With Heart and Hands and Voices

"The music we experience in our services helps us to focus on God and others and how we should live as Christians in our world. The music offers moments for peaceful reflection, something that maybe we don't find as often as we need during the week. The encouragement and comfort the music brings can be a much-needed balm for the tired or distressed, a reminder that God is near. These things are meaningful to me, and it is a special joy to participate with people of all ages at Gary who love giving to others through music." — Beth Graves
