Gathering in Worship

Sundays

We offer two in-person worship opportunities in our historic church that are led by our rector, the Rev. Seldon Walker: a Rite I service at 8 a.m.

The Rite I service is more traditional but does include some music. The Rite II service is more contemporary, with congregational hymns and a broader musical selection.

Nursery care is available on the lower level of the Parish Hall for children ages 4 and younger between 10:00 and 11:30 a.m.

We offer virtual visitors the 10:15 a.m. service at GraceYorktown.online.church. There’s no login or membership required (though you may choose to do that) and no need to type in a .org or .com when you get on the internet. Services will be recorded and posted to Grace’s YouTube channel shortly after the service concludes.

You may watch past services on our YouTube channel.

We invite you to join us after the 10:15 a.m. service for a cup of coffee or lemonade in our Parish Hall or on the lawn if the weather is fair.

Bulletins

Sunday’s bulletin is typically available online the Friday before services. You can see it at our online streaming location: GraceYorktown.online.church. It’s also linked in our weekly e-newsletter, the FridayGram. For those watching the 10:15 a.m. livestream service, the bulletin appears on the screen alongside the service, although this may be too small for easy reading on some devices.

Miss a service or want to watch all or part of it again? Head to Grace’s YouTube channel, where we post all livestreamed services shortly after they conclude.

Wednesday Healing Eucharist

Slow down and join us at noon Wednesdays in the historic church for a holy eucharist service with prayers for healing, led by our rector The Rev. Seldon Walker or our associate rector The Rev. Nanette Woodworth. This service typically concludes after about 40 minutes.

Daily Morning Prayer

On weekdays we invite you to participate in Daily Morning Prayer, a ritual that helps to start the day off in a contemplative way. Grace follows the “Forward Day by Day” booklets, which are available in the church office in both pocketbook- and large-print formats. You may also access “Forward Day by Day” online by clicking here.

Centering Prayer

Grace’s Centering Prayer Group each Monday practices a particular kind of wordless, contemplative prayer grounded in Matthew 6:8 – “Wherever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to the Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Developed in its modern form by the late Fr. Thomas Keating, it has deep roots in ancient contemplative Christian spirituality. It is open to all and first-timers are provided brief instruction. The experience is offered twice each week, once via Zoom and once in person. The Zoom-based group begins at 7:30 a.m. Mondays with short readings about Centering Prayer practice and from Scripture. Then comes 20 minutes of silence and a time for reflection – all concluding at 8:15 a.m. The in-person group meets from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Tuesdays at Riverview.
