Worship is the heart of how Elmhurst Presbyterian Church (EPC) celebrates Christ’s love, explores biblical teachings and renews our spirits for the week ahead.
Our worship services are lively, filled with music, opportunities to interact and biblically-informed messages.
Every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary
Special services during Lent, Easter, Advent and Christmas
Nursery: Available from 9:00 a.m. to noon in Room 101 for newborn to 3 years
Young Disciples – Worship service features a special message for children before they are dismissed for Bible Zone.
Bible Zone: Special activities during the sermon and after for children ages 3 thru 3rd grade.
Passing of the Peace: It’s a tradition at EPC to get out of the pews and connect with as many people as possible during the passing of the peace. Visitors are often surprised by our liveliness.
Music: EPC’s style of Worship allows for and requires a wide variety of musical genres including hymns, praise, gospel, folk and contemporary worship songs and classical music. Music is carefully planned to contribute to the worship service in an intentional, integrated and meaningful manner.
We welcome musicians from the congregation and community to share their gifts during the service.
Fall 2017 Worship Series
Tending the New Creation:
“And if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” - 2 Corinthians 5: 17
What does it mean to be a “new creation?” We all yearn for renewal– but are we willing to pursue it? How is our own personal renewal connected to “new creation” in others, in our communities and in the world itself? “Tending” means to lean in the direction of something... to “attend” to something is to nurture it, grow it, build it, pay... “attention!” So this is what we will do on the 8 week journey toward the New Creation Christ in-tends for us!
At this special Fall Start-Up Worship service, we invite you to join with the other members of your Parish Unit and sit together in worship. Getting to know the folks in your Parish Unit is a first step toward “Tending” to relationships in our community. As part of our “Attending” to one another, worship will flow directly into our Western BBQ themed church picnic at 11:15, so please plan on staying for this fun time of fellowship and food! Western wear is also welcome so get out your cowboy boots and hats and join us for a fabulous beginning to a new year at EPC!
