A Special Introduction to the ARRIVAL OF ADVENT and COMING OF CHRISTMAS

Elk Grove Presbyterian Church is truly blessed and delighted to offer a beautiful musical prayer service on Wednesday, Nov 28, 2018, at 7:00pm in anticipation of the arrival of Advent.  

The inspiring Holden Evening Prayer service (written by Marty Haugen) includes “Service of Light,” Evening Hymn-“Joyous Light of Heav’nly Glory,” “Evening Thanksgiving,”The Annunciation,”The Magnificat,”Litany and Prayers,” and “Final Blessing.”  The lovely voice of Virginia Ayres Dawson will lead this engaging tribute.

Taken from the Gospel of Luke 1:46-55, the passionate and endearing “The Annunciation” and “The Magnificat” (also known as “Mary’s Song”) are a perfect entrance into the church season of Advent, a period of spiritual preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ.  

This is an ideal opportunity to invite family and friends to experience awesome beauty in the traditional music of the church while using contemporary and inclusive language.  Everyone is welcome!  There will be no Sermon, Holy Communion or Offering.
