Adult Ministries

Elmhurst Presbyterian Church offers a number of ways for adult members to expand their knowledge of the Bible and feel more comfortable sharing their Christian faith.

Adult Studies: Join us on Sundays before worship service at 9:15 a.m. in Calvin Hall for ongoing discussions lead by the pastor. No advance preparation is needed. Just come with an open heart and mind to share in conversation and learning.
