A Message From Our Pastor
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!
In His Steps,
Rev. Lynne E. Savidis
Welcome on this first Sunday in Lent! May we worship as did the psalmist, who wrote: ”So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you” (Psalm 63:2-3).
The service for Sundays during Lent is more restrained and sombe than the other seasons of the year, and yet it is still the Lord’s Day service, a witness not only to the Lord’s passion and death, but also to His victory over sin and death. Still hymns and anthems containing “alleluia” are traditionally not sung as often during this Holy Season. During Lent it is also common to forego the singing of the Gloria Patri and to replace it with a response that is more penitent. As such, we will sing the third verse of “O Sacred Head Now Wounded” as our response to the Prayer of Confession for the next few weeks. Let us continue our Lenten journey together.
“I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” Genesis 9:13
