Music at Grace Church

Our Director of Music and Organist

We welcomed Jonas Dawson as our Director of Music in April 2016. A lifetime Maryland resident, Jonas studied piano and voice privately in Hagerstown, Maryland. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Jonas previously served the congregation of Mt. Vernon Reformed United Church of Christ in Keedysville, Maryland as their Organist and Music Director.


Jonas is also highly sought after as a musical theater music director and piano accompanist, having been involved with over fifty shows with groups in Eastern West Virginia and around Maryland. Jonas helped found the group Being Revived, whose mission is to expose audiences to musicals that are lesser known, or just haven't found their audience yet.



Our Choirs

The Senior Choir prepares music to enhance our worship every Sunday morning from September through mid-June.  Choir rehearsals are held on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m.  If you enjoy singing, and would like to join the choir, please speak to our Director of Music.  Anyone wishing to participate is welcome to join us - no formal audition required!


The Joyful Noise Choir is an informal group that sings well-known hymns during worship one Sunday a month.  There are no weekly rehearsals - the choir rehearses for a short time just before the service on the day they are to sing.


New members to either choir are always welcome!
