One of the defining characteristics of the worship at Evident Grace is our music. No, we aren’t defined by bombastic lights and sound, but instead, we aim to be defined by biblically-based music with a great spiritual depth and history. We choose our songs according to the themes related to our sermon passages looking for songs that both prepare and deepen the experience of our souls.
Because of that, we are part of the hymn re-write movement. Many of the songs we choose are great hymns of the church either presented as they were originally written or re-interpreted for our present context (often with guitars, mandolins, and varied percussion). We are also writing and re-arranging songs for our present context.
At Evident Grace, we want to honor the musical heritage of the church past while representing the church present.
Because of these convictions, we are eagerly partnering with New Life in Christ Church in Fredericksburg and Hope of Christ Church in Stafford to bring Matthew Smith in concert. Matthew Smith and his work with Indelible Grace are at the forefront of the hymn re-write movement, so this concert will be both worshipful and instructive for us.
This worship event will kick off on October 18th at New Life in Christ Church at 7:30pm. Tickets are $5 for individuals and $15 for families if you pre-purchase. The day of the event, tickets are $7 for individuals and $20 for families at the door.
New Life in Church is located at 11925 Burgess Lane in Fredericksburg, VA behind the Spotsylvania Mall.
