Thanks from Kathryn

Fifty-nine of my ninety years have been spent with my Gayton Church family. You have helped me grow spiritually and have shown me how to serve my Lord. Thank you for your time to have cake and visit with me following the worship service on September 29. I'm also grateful for your beautiful birthday cards and kind words.

DEEP DESSERTS for HIGH SCHOOLERS

Deep Desserts return on September 11 for High School students. We will meet at the Espigh's house for the month of September! We will begin a dialogue around the book of "Love Does". Start time is 7:30 and the address is We usually wrap up at 8:30! Desserts will be provided! Can't wait to see you there!


SUNDAY CLASSES & PROGRAMS

I am delighted to say, that many of our students serve on Sunday mornings in Kid's ministry, on the media team and other areas of the church on Sunday morning! We encourage our students to be a part of The Church. Sunday mornings look different from the typical "Youth Group". We want our students to know that The Church works, because members of the body make it work. By presenting opportunities for them to serve, they gain an insight into how they're an integral part of The Church now! And they begin to understand that THEY Are The Church! Prayerfully, this sense of service carries over into their adult lives--back at Gayton! We also offer Sunday Morning Bible Study for students at 9:30 and 10:45. (You can add Angela's response here). 9:30 meet in the Community Room. 10:45 meet in the Conference Room.


Oxygen, is the name of our Sunday night Middle School Youth Group. Engage, is the name of our Sunday night High School Youth Group. We meet on Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00pm at Gayton Church in the gym. Students enjoy an evening meal together, worship, small group time with an adult leader, and we finish our time together with a fun activity in the gym! This is definitely a highlight of my week and many students would agree! 


Sunday nights is where other Christian leaders can sow into the lives of our children in a meaningful, consistent way. The leaders gather personal information at the beginning of the year such as, birthdays, recital dates, sports schedules, etc so that they can attend at least one event throughout the year. We want our students to know that discipleship can happen anywhere at any time
