Elk Grove Presbyterian Church is truly blessed and delighted to offer a beautiful musical prayer service on Tuesday, November 26, at 7:00PMin anticipation of the arrival of Advent and the coming of Christmas.  

The inspiring Holden Evening Prayer service (written by Marty Haugen) includes “Service of Light,”Joyous Light of Heav’nly Glory,” “Evening Thanksgiving,”The Annunciation,”The Magnificat,”Litany and Prayers,”  and “Final Blessing.”

Taken from the Gospel of Luke 1:46-55, the passionate and endearing music is a perfect entrance into the church season of Advent, a period of spiritual preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ.  

The lovely voice of Virginia Ayers Dawson and the exquisite pianist Jacqui Hairston will be joined by amazing voices of special guests Leslie Sandefur and Sheryl Counter and distinguished flutist Lauren Zucker

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.  



Mark your calendars now for these remarkable evening worship opportunities.  Friends and neighbors welcome!


Holden Evening Prayer service focuses on the coming of Advent and its beautiful season of hope. This unique prayer service of engaging music with special guest musicians is a community favorite.

IT’S ALMOST MAGIC! – Plastic bottles and soda and beer bottles have been turned into support for education ($130 so far). Just remove the caps from plastic bottles, bring them and soda/beer bottles to the church and place them in the blue bin in the kitchen. We are looking for someone to redeem these containers at a recycling facility. If you can help, please contact Rev. McNamara.


If you cannot spare the time to prepare goodies for our hospitality time after worship, please consider making a donation to the green “Hospitality Donation Box”
located at the hospitality table. Donating will help fill the void dates and lessen the burden on members who regularly prepare goodies.
