“Learning From The Past”

The Scripture   John 2: 13-17 13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and...

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.

“The Hard Work Of Listening”

Our Lenten Theme for this Sunday is Again & Again we are called to listen! As our passage this morning reveals to us, it is hard to listen when someone is saying something you don’t want to hear or we are anxious or surprised and we feel we have to move into action.
