Grace Chapel Worship, a community of gifted artists who love to worship God and love serving the church, will be recording a new, live worship album this week, and the public is invited to participate in the event.
The live recording event for the group’s upcoming CD, appropriately entitled So Loved, is set for Wednesday, February 24, 2016, from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, at Grace Chapel in Franklin, Tennessee, situated in the rolling hills south of Nashville. This new project reflects worship as the natural response to the overwhelming love poured out by God on His children, and will feature a collection of original songs penned by members of the worship community at Grace Chapel.
Contemporary Christian music pioneer and Grace Chapel pastoral care pastor Rick Cua credits Grace Chapel worship pastor Jonathan Allen with creating an atmosphere of worship that was conducive to producing the project. “Jonathan Allen’s nurturing leadership has made a way for the worship team to pour it all out for Jesus each time we worship, while at the same time get out of the way so the congregation can stay focused and draw close to the Lord,” says Cua. “Every track on Grace Chapel Worship’s new worship album, So Loved, is a reflection of what God is doing musically from week to week and song to song at our church. The foundation of it all is our desire to worship God by giving back everything He’s given us.”
So Loved will be produced by multi-Dove Award winning producer Ian Eskelin. The project follows on the heals of Grace Chapel Worship’s beautiful, 7-song Christmas EP, Songs of the Incarnation: Ever With Us, which released in December 2015 on the Grace House Music label. That project is now available for purchase online through iTunes, Amazon Music and Google Play.
In keeping with Grace Chapel’s heartbeat for missions and in response to God’s call to “look after orphans” (James 1:27), a portion of the proceeds from all Grace Chapel Worship sales will go towards Josiah’s House, a boy’s home started by Grace Chapel in the Dominican Republic.
