Worshiping

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.

Worship in June and July 2018

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and the prayers” Acts 2:42

This summer we’ll follow the pattern of the early church as we explore the movement of the Spirit in the Acts of the Apostles. We’ll gather in Calvin Hall around tables with our coffee and treats to fellowship with one another, sing songs, say our prayers, and learn of and from the stories of the church’s beginnings. Start time is 10:30 am. 

We’ll focus on some of the key stories in Acts, but invite you to also read the material in between the stories.  

Come as you are - summer attire is expected. Open yourself to the Spirit, to worship, to enjoy the company of your brothers and sisters in Christ, to grow and be encouraged in your faith .

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.
