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!!!

If you've been wondering where we've been..

Hi everyone, Mandy here. I'm sure you've noticed it's been a couple years since this page has been updated. The group has sort of disbanded ever since Phil & I lost our precious baby girl in July 2010. We had to take a break, and we weren't able to get the group back together again. Phil and I have continued to lead worship at SBC, though not as often as in the past. Now that the fog of our loss is beginning to dissipate, and we've been blessed with the happiest baby boy you could ever meet, I am back to my songwriting, and we are ready to do more with the musical gifts God has given us. We are looking into playing at the Vine in July for their open mic night, and we will continue to update here & on our facebook page (link on the sidebar). Our style has evolved to be more acoustic and mellow, with 1 guitar, conga drums & 2 voices. We hope you enjoy the new sound, and pray that our group, however small, will continue to reach people for Jesus.
