Saved By Grace is the newest part of the music ministry of Springfield Baptist Church, located in Springfield Pennsylvania. Our mission is to reach people of all ages for Jesus Christ with our own unique blend of contemporary Christian, rock, almost-country, and classic hymns. We put our stamp on many of the old standards, as well as covering popular contemporary Christian songs, and doing our own originals. The band is comprised of 5 members from Springfield Baptist - Amanda "Mandy" Collins (vocals, guitar, original songwriting), Timothy Balch (vocals, guitar, song arrangements), Rita Balch (vocals, percussion), Phil Collins (vocals, percussion), and Mary Almonte (vocals). When we play outside of Sunday morning service, we are also joined by our friends Anthony "Chip" Schiavone on drums & Mike Walker on bass. We minister at SBC's morning service twice monthly, as well as perform "coffee houses" (live music nights) regularly for the congregation in a more casual setting. Keep your eye out for public performances as well...more info coming soon!!!
