Inspired and Inspiring Worship that Shapes Daily Life
At Ginter Park Presbyterian Church, we glorify God, celebrate God’s gifts to us, and listen for God’s voice as we worship together. We employ a variety of forms and expressions, reflecting the generational and cultural diversity of our community and its needs.
We read widely from scripture. In 2017 and 2018 we are giving the Narrative Lectionary a try. Our service music is drawn from all over the world, and for each service the choir sings an introit newly composed by our Director of Music. All church staff are strongly committed to planning worship that is thoughtful, relevant, rooted in scripture, and deeply connected with the larger community.
Members of the church are invited to help lead worship on Sunday mornings as lay liturgists. We believe God speaks in different ways, through many voices – at times through us! We also believe every person can approach God directly. So it is fitting that the prayers be offered and God’s word be read by members of the church. This participation is a visible reminder that the ministers of GPPC are the members themselves.
What God has created is good, and we employ it in our worship. We raise God (and God lifts our spirits) through seasonal banners and other art, drama, and dance – the fruits of creation, our bodies, our selves.
In addition to our Sunday morning worship, we have special services throughout the year. Supper Church is offered at different times during the church year and the much loved Love Feast in the Moravian tradition is held during Advent.
