At UPC we strive to truly praise Jesus through our music. We exist to be a bridge for the entire congregation to feel the living spirt in the music we provide.
UPC’s music ministry includes:
- Adult Choir: Chancel Choir for the 10:00 service. Rehearsal is held at 6 p.m. on Thursday evenings, September through May.
- Handbell Choir. The Grace Notes Bell Choir rehearses at 7:10 p.m. on Thursdays, September through May. Small Handbell Ensembles are also part of our handbell choir.
- Our accompanist on piano and organ is the talented Marcia Twadell.
- UPC Concert Series: Our series includes concerts by our UPC choral and bell ensembles. Outside groups such as Jake’s Boys gospel men’s group in November 2015, Cafe Quatour saxophone quartet in March 2016, the Jon Rarick Nonet in July 2016, Dan Holmes in February 2017 and the Jon Rarick Big Band in August 2017 have also been part of the series, bringing new styles of music to UPC and the Grayslake community.
