Join us as we learn a new hymn “Glory to God,” the new Presbyterian hymnal “For Everyone Born”
The 8:30 AM Morning Celtic Worship Service is a 40-minute service with The Lord’s Supper, special music and a guided discussion about the Scripture.
Christian Celtic worship values the everyday experience and the ways we use our senses to praise God. We respond to God’s gifts of seeing and tasting, hearing and feeling, and singing by offering our whole selves to God in worship.
The Celtic tradition is a way of seeing the world. The tradition emphasizes the goodness of creation and makes us aware of the connections of nature with God’s creatures. Nature does not serve humankind, rather, all of creation joins with humanity to praise God.
Join us Sunday mornings for an early morning worship service. Start your day with Celtic music and prayer and discussion about a particular Scripture. Celebration of the Lord’s Supper takes place around the Communion Table. All are invited to come and participate in this Celtic Worship experience.
The 11 AM Sunday morning worship service is a traditional Christian service. As many other Presbyterian congregations, we use a schedule of readings to guide Scripture selection for Sunday. The choir presents special music for the service, there is a sermon, and a time of sharing prayer concerns.
As participants in the worship experience at The Gayton Kirk we, as the gathered community, offer ourselves and our abilities in service to God. We sing. We dance. We pray. We make music. We preach. We serve. We are the actors on the stage before God. We are bringing ourselves to God.
We believe it is very important to welcome children as participants in worship. We have a children’s time during the morning service and we include appropriate experiences during worship for the young and old. There is a nursery with a Nursery Director provided for children ages up through five years of age.
Join us Sunday evenings at 5pm for Jazz Vespers. Scripture is read and interpreted through Jazz music (featuring our very own Jazz Trio: Tommy Witten, Joe Sarver, Ross Riddell), interpreted visually through various forms of visual art and poetry as well as small group, coffee-house-style discussion. The worship service also includes celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Stay after the service and continue the discussion over a bowl of soup and some homemade bread. A new and innovative way to experience worship at the Gayton Kirk!
