Our Services

What are services like?
Our Worship Services Are... • Vibrant: worship ignites our mission, study and fellowship as a faith community committed to Jesus Christ. • Inter-generational: all ages are welcome. We welcome crying babies, curious children, inquisitive youth, coughing adults and everyone in between! • Musical: We are led in song by a wonderfully talented music team as we give praise to God through hymns, psalms, spirituals, praise songs, gospel tunes in addition to music from around the world. • Biblical: Our service of worship focuses on God’s Word and is structured around hearing and responding to the Word. • Thoughtful: Even as we worship, we wrestle with life’s deepest questions and concerns. Our tradition allows for both faith and doubt as we seek to grow together in love of God and one another. • Sacramental: In the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) we recognize Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as our sacraments. • Prayerful: We are a praying community. Praying in community allows us to support and care for one another as we come to God in prayer.

What is the community like?
In our church community you will find people of all ages and from many different backgrounds. We have active fellowship and study groups for children, youth and adults, but we also pride ourselves on being an inter-generational community. This means that young and old learn from one another as they grow in their faith and they share in fellowship embodying Christ's body in the world. At Graystone, we have life-long Presbyterians and people who have barely been Presbyterian long enough to spell it correctly! All are welcome to learn and grow in Christ together as a faith community.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Our congregation acknowledges that everyone is in a different place along the Christian journey. We gather as a community to affirm and support one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. Even as we worship, we wrestle with life’s deepest questions and concerns. All are welcome to our faith community who are seeking to learn more about Jesus and the Kingdom of God.
