Members: Plan to be at EPC on June 24 to vote on pastoral candidate
On Sunday June 24th, during a regular service in our sanctuary, you are invited to meet the pastor nominated to become the long-term pastor at Elmhurst Presbyterian Church.
This experienced solo pastor has been unanimously advanced by your Pastoral Nominating Committee and the proposed Terms of Call have been unanimously approved by your Session.
You’ll have an opportunity to meet and learn about the nominated individual, who will deliver the sermon. You are also invited to participate in a congregational meeting after the service. During the meeting, you will vote on a motion to accept the candidate and the Terms of Call.
This is very exciting news for our church.
I know that there isn’t much notice between now and the 24th, but after a long and deliberate process to find a pastor who will be a great fit for our church, we want to be able to move briskly — as the candidate will need to relocate to our area and hopes to do so ahead of the start of school in the fall.
So please, if you can, plan to be in the sanctuary on June 24th for the service and congregational meeting.
Yours in faith,
Doug Fitzgerald, for the Pastoral Nominating Committee

Join EPC for casual, bible-study focused worship services in Calvin Hall every Sunday during June, July and August. We'll meet at 10:30 am in Calvin Hall and sit in small groups at round tables to worship, explore faith and enjoy coffee. Communion available the first Sunday of every month.
Kids of all ages contributed their artistic vision to a community art project at EPC's booth at Art in the Park in Wilder Park. The two-day annual event features artisans booths, music, food and fortunately this year...good weather.
The EPC booth in the kids' area featured a large canvas. Kids donned smocks and safety glasses before squirting the canvas with paint from a spray bottle. The results are beautiful and would make Jackson Pollack proud.
Stop by EPC's Family Pride Fest on June 20 to see the two paintings.
More than 50 people, ages five months to 60+, filled Calvin Hall on Friday, April 20 for Family Yoga Night. It was fun and spiritual evening where participants challenged themselves to connect with their faith, bodies and each other through the practice of yoga.
