Tuneful Tuesdays

Tuneful Tuesdays is a seasonal celebration of musical performances by members of the Grace community. Each episode features scripture and prayer tied to the theme of the music performance. The episodes can be found on the Grace YouTube channel, Facebook, and here below on the Music page.


Lenten Episode 4 – One Waypoint
We close our Lenten Edition of Tuneful Tuesdays with the original music of One Waypoint. In the midst of Lent, we will hear music about the way God embraces us in God’s arms and how God is with us all of the time.
Lenten Episode 3 – Sarah Jane Scott
We welcome Sarah Jane Scott and her musical meditations on this episode of Tuneful Tuesdays Lenten Edition. Sarah Jane shares a vocal and instrumental introspection in her performance selections that include a piano waltz by Scott Joplin and the expressive a cappella singing of the beloved hymn, The Old Rugged Cross.
Lenten Episode 2 – Diana Rybinsky
As we continue with our Tuneful Tuesdays, Lenten Edition, we know that you will enjoy the solo handbell mastery of Diana Rybinsky. Diana directs the GosBells handbell choir and plays in the Parrish Bells at Grace church.
