Sanctuary Worship: Youth Sunday

May 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

This week, our Senior High youth will lead us during worship! This special service is an annual tradition at ELPC where we celebrate the gifts and accomplishments of our youth while praising God for the work of the Holy Spirit upon and through the youth of our church.

The youth have written the entire liturgy, selected the songs, and will lead us in worship. Graduating Seniors will share their faith stories, and receive a blessing by the congregation as they prepare for the next steps in their respective life journeys. This year, students completing third grade will be presented with a gift of a Bible from the church, that they might be nurtured in God’s word.

This service is held in the Sanctuary on the first floor, with an organ prelude before the service. We extend a warm welcome to our Latino friends and include several prayers in our service bulletin in English and Spanish. This is ELPC’s largest service, offering a traditional worship service with thought-provoking sermons, and the music of our Chancel Choir and organ to reinforce the spirit of praise and reverence. Like many of the great cathedrals of Europe, the compelling power and beauty of our historic, gothic-style Sanctuary enhances the spiritual experience. Children are invited to the chancel steps to hear their own message with one of the pastors. The service is led by ELPC’s senior pastor or other members of the pastoral staff. Special guest pastors or speakers periodically lead the service.
