EASTER AT GAYTON

Fixing our eyes on nothing ordinary

{ IF THIS IS TRUE, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING...}

WE PREPARE OUR HEARTS...

HOW DO I UNDERSTAND EASTER IN AN AUTHENTIC WAY?...

Through the new message series: Nothing Ordinary, we begin our journey toward Easter by preparing our hearts in worship and word as we fix our eyes on Jesus and the extraordinary way He loves us!


Aaron Lee, a member of our Teaching Team, will kick off this new messages series as he shares the message "The Journey to Easter" in both Celebration service and Nexus on April 7.


Pastor Mike and the Teaching Team will continue the series each Sunday as we look at how Jesus gives, lives, died, saves, goes and beckons us to go into the world to bring His message to everyone.


This journey continues on Palm Sunday...

PALM SUNDAY | 4/14

WORSHIP AND FIX YOUR EYES ON JESUS, OUR HUMBLE AND STRONG KING!

On Sunday, April 14, we’ll celebrate at both Celebration (9:30) and Nexus (10:45) services the triumphal, humble entry of King Jesus. This is always a special Sunday filled with joy! Joy from being together and from the smiling faces of our Gayton Kids waving palm branches in honor of Jesus and when He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, greeted by shouts of praise from His people. (Matthew 21)


But Jesus knew what would happen in the coming days… 

GOOD FRIDAY | 4/19

GOOD FRIDAY? WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT BEING KILLED ON A CROSS?

On Friday, April 19 at 7pm, we’ll gather together as we look to Jesus' death on the cross and honor Him for accepting the punishment for every sin that belongs to us. This is a mysterious event that is often hard to wrap your head around. We want to help you know what this means and what this means for your life.


FOR KIDS...

Kids will meet in the Big Room in the Kid Min area at 7pm for a special time of worship and reflection on Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.


Here's a hint: For Jesus, death was not the end, and it's not the end for you either, because… 

EASTER SUNDAY | 4/21

…Jesus got back up. He. Got. Back. Up.

And this is oh so good news for you and me! It means that everything Jesus said was true. It means that everything that had been written in the Old Testament of the Bible pointed toward this moment and was true. It means that when Jesus said He comes so that we may have life to the fullest, He meant it and this is how He would invite us into life to the fullest.


It means that if this is true, this changes EVERYTHING.


EASTER SERVICES...

We have the greatest news that has ever been and ever will be! We’ll share this Good News at Celebration (9:30) and Nexus (10:45) on Easter morning.


GROUPS & CLASSES

Our various LifeGroups and Sunday School classes will NOT meet on Easter morning. With the exception of an adjusted kids schedule...


FOR KIDS...

We'll celebrate this good news with our kids, too! At 9:30, Nursery (babies - 2 years) and Preschool Church (2 years - pre k), and Elementary Kids Worship (K-5th). At 10:45, Nursery (babies - 2 years) and Preschool Church (2 years - pre k), Elementary joins Nexus worship (K-5th).


We want everyone to know, so begin connecting with friends and co-workers about joining you at Gayton on Easter!
