Praise and Worship

Praise by the Pier 2024

 Every Sunday from June 16 – August 25

Lynne Sherwood Waterfront Stadium: 1 N Harbor Dr, Grand Haven, MI 49417

Keeping Christian Music on the Waterfront in Grand Haven

Grand Haven has been worshipping on summer evenings since 1947. The group that had been organizing this weekly event decided to move Worship on the Waterfront to a venue in Holland.

The beginning of a new…

Announcing – Praise by the Pier concert series. A local group working with Hark Up has committed to keep the Sunday night Christian music programs alive in the new downtown waterfront stadium! The programming will be diverse, ranging from classical, gospel, traditional, contemporary, and big band. Praise by the Pier will be performed by choirs and instrumental groups as well as a number of praise teams. The music will be inspirational to young and old audiences alike. We are lucky to be able to book this kind of family entertainment that you can’t find anywhere else.

Keeping a small town vibe and feel…

This community staple is consistent with the family atmosphere that we’ve all worked to develop in Grand Haven and the greater West Michigan area. Praise by the Pier will bring thousands of people together in worship and song, overlooking our best asset in town – the waterfront! This will add to the vibrant waterfront scene and will be a great way to spend the evening before the Musical Fountain. It is so important to keep this tradition alive.

What people say

Coopersville Reformed Church has had such a great experience by hiring worship leaders from Hark Up! Not only are they extremely talented, but they are also professional and help assist our staff with preparing everything needed for Sunday worship. Even on weeks where we had only a few band volunteers, the Hark Up Worship Leaders were able to work with them to help our congregation have meaningful and spirit-filled worship. Each Worship Leader that we hired led with confidence and enthusiasm for praising Jesus, which in turn helped our congregation also worship Him.

Worship Coordinator - Coopersville Reformed Church
We have Hark-up for our Easter and Christmas services. These celebrations are often the highlight of the year for many worshippers. Having the sanctuary filled with strings and brass and the sounds of praise is an amazing blessing.

Pastor of Spiritual Formation - Community Reformed Church Zeeland
Literally every Sunday morning I am blessed with the music selections and how appropriate they speak to the scripture and message given! Also blessed with the entire praise team and the gifts used to bring us to a heart of worship!

“Love it!” “Was really a great time.” “I was touched, what a wonderful evening.” “I was impressed with the quality of voices and musician. When are you going to do this again, can’t wait.” “What an electric evening. The energy of the musicians and band was contagious.” These were just a few of the reactions we received from people who attended the concert we sponsored with Hark Music, the Hark Music Choir and band. It was truly a great evening of music and humor. We were very pleased and will definitely be working with Hark Music again this year.
