Join us for worship service with Christmas Cantata on Sunday December 16th at 10:15am

 

Welcome!  On this third Sunday in Advent, let us rejoice in God’s great love revealed to us in Christ. We have received “glad tidings of great joy.” Therefore let us show our joy by sharing this glorious news with one another in a spirit of love, peace and friendship.

 

Thank you for visiting the website for the Elk Grove Presbyterian Church!  Hopefully this site will give you enough information and interest to join us in worship on Sunday!

Our community of faith has been sharing the Gospel of Christ for fifty years and we are just as excited about the Good News now as when the church was first formed!

We are a small congregation of about 75 members of all ages.  Our worship services are traditional with periodic (and sometimes humorous) surprises along the way.  We are small enough to truly care about one another and enjoy the blessings of new people coming our way.  We are large enough to enjoy a diversity of beliefs and challenge ourselves to be open and grow from one another.

If as you make your way through this website, you have a sense that God is calling you to visit us, please know you will be welcomed as a beloved child of God.
