Morning Worship 10:00 AM
Worship is at the heart of our lives as Christians and is the center from which all other activities must flow. The beautiful worship space of Gilwood Church and the attention given to the liturgies and music of the Church, work together to provide rich soil for spiritual growth.
Our worship service is a traditional service which includes hymns, prayers of thanksgiving and intercession, God’s Word, and sacrament. As Presbyterians, we honor our liturgical and musical traditions.
We practice open Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and we invite all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to join us around the Lord’s table where we are forgiven of our sins and called to join in God’s new covenant of grace, and reconciliation.
Wednesday Night Revive
We offer a contemporary service called “Wednesday Night Revive” at 6:00 p.m. in our Fellowship Building. Matt Stratford and his team lead an uplifting praise service with contemporary hymns, special music and sharing of prayer concerns and praise reports. Pastor Chaz leads the group in prayer and in the study of God’s Word. Join us for a midweek “revival” of your body and spirit.
Children in Worship
Children are an important part of our church, and worship is no exception. We welcome children of all ages in worship and encourage them to take an active role in the service.
- The Acolyte program is open to children 8 years old or older.
- There is a nursery available during the service.
- We currently offer Children’s Church which seeks to educate our young worshipers.
We have a Liturgist program in which volunteers introduce and lead the Prayer of Confession and the first Scripture reading. Children 13 years old and older are encouraged to participate.
In addition to the regular worship services, we hold a number of special services throughout the year:
- Ash Wednesday
- Maundy Thursday
- Easter Sun Rise Service (in our beautiful outdoor sanctuary)
- Christmas Eve
