Next Week’s Sermon:

“Ambassador For Christ”

Paul says the people of Corinth are to be “Ambassadors for Christ.”  This raised the question for me of just what did he mean by saying this?  How can one be an ambassador for Christ?  Of course, this led me to thinking about ambassadors and their role as diplomats here and now in our country and all over the world.

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.

Growing up my favorite books to read were mystery books. I loved putting the pieces together trying to solve the mystery…hoping to solve it before I would get to the end of the book…

I don’t know if you are familiar with this trending story coming from Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s a story that has been repeated in several newspapers but originally it came from the local television station KOAT out of Santa Fe.
