This service is held in the sanctuary on the first floor, with music beginning at 10:45 am. We extend a warm welcome 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. You can read or listen to the sermons from the Sanctuary worship service, posted on our website.
This service is held in the music room on the third floor. Join us for a lively service of spirit, hope, and praise in which we encounter God’s word in a fresh, compelling way. The blending of contemporary music, Gospel songs and hymns, introspective worship and interactive communal praise helps to reflect the diverse, creative spirit that is at the heart of ELPC. The service is led by the Rev. Patrice Fowler-Searcy, the Rev. Heather T. Schoenewolf, and the Rev. Dr. Randall K. Bush. Read more about the Journey worship service, including videos and sermons from the service, posted on our website.
This service is held in the dining room on the ground floor. Join members and friends of ELPC and guests of the East End Cooperative Ministry Men’s Shelter at this early service of music, prayer and personal witness. Listen as stories of the healing power of Jesus are shared every week. The service is led by members of the clergy from local churches, guest speakers from a community organization or social service agencies, or members and staff of ELPC.
