Next Week’s Sermon:

“Courage To Ask And Believe!”

As we continue looking at Faces of Our Faith, this morning we go to a book of the bible that I have never preached from; it is the book of Numbers. Now in just looking at the name of this book what do you think it is about? Numbers?  Why yes! I t is an account the census of the Israelites. If you ever read through Numbers, you will find many lists of names that belong to certain tribes. This census taking was important as it was the deciding factor in how much land each family would be allocated through the number of individuals

Worship is the most important aspect of our existence as a community of faith.

At the start of worship God is invoked to join the congregation for the service. Through worship we realize together that God’s presence brings special meaning to all that we do and say during worship. God’s word is read at least twice in every service, once by a worship leader from the congregation and again by the pastor. The pastor’s sermon for the day is based on the scripture readings.

The Sacraments

The sacraments are important to Elk Grove Presbyterian Church. COMMUNION is served on a monthly basis. The congregation is invited to approach the communion table to receive communion. BAPTISM is performed occasionally. The baptism bowl is filled with water and sometimes stones so the recipient may be reminded of baptism and all it means.

Music

Music is important to the worship service. We sing several hymns related to the service each Sunday. The choir provides music for nine months of the year including the performance of a cantata just before Christmas. In the summer we have Hymn Sings around a theme or book of old favorites. We also use the musical gifts of various church members, as EGPC is a body of wonderfully talented people.

The Sanctuary

The sanctuary enhances our worship. The large stained glass cross focuses our worship. We purchased a new communion table and pulpit just a few years ago, New table cloths were made to decorate the table with the appropriate color for the season of the church year. We have the usual candles with special candles and lighting throughout the year. Flowers further adorn the sanctuary on Christmas and Easter. Our usual “windows” on God’s kingdom our banner, remind us of various events and celebrations and theological ideas.

“Courage to Resist”

“Courage to Resist”

This morning we continue our sermon series titled: “Faces of Our Faith.”  As with last week, we will continue to explore the stories and people in scripture that are often overlook.  People who stand out and do amazing acts of faith and we don’t even stop to see them or acknowledge the gift of courage they have revealed to us. Never has this been truer than this morning.

“Time of Discovery”

“Time of Discovery”

Today we start a new theme titled, “The Faces of our Faith”. This theme arises from a desire to explore the stories and people in scripture that we often overlook, miss altogether, or take for granted.  What faces are half hidden or obscured?  How often do we read a familiar story and gloss over the individual lives found within that story?  I think is particularly true in the story we will read this morning.  It is the creation of humankind and their relationship to God
