Welcome to the Evangelical Covenant Church of Elgin! We believe that on the third day God raised Jesus from the dead, that for forty days he appeared to many in his new life, and that he showed himself exalted when he was raised to the right hand of God. This is our faith, and each year we celebrate the glory of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Our Easter worship is 10:30 AM. Because so many are involved in the presentation on Sunday, and because Easter is a time for family and friends to gather, our normal Sunday morning programs are suspended until April 8, with adult Sunday School at 9:15, Children’s Church during the morning service, and coffee-hour fellowship afterwards.
On Easter Sunday the focus is on the worship. As it falls on the first Sunday of the month, the service will include communion. The music will include additional choir involvement and a brass quartet. What excites me the most is that the sermon this Sunday is a “team” approach, as our church is blessed with a “company of preachers.” So we will hear from Pastor Henoch, Pastor Greg, the Rev. Carol Bob (ret.), and Pastor Jonathan, each taking a portion of the text from Matthew 28:16-20.
We hope to see you on Sunday! If you are looking for a church that espouses traditional values with a generosity in spirit that comes with the firm belief that the gospel is “good news” for sinners and for the whole world, come see what the Lord has for you.
Jesus Is Alive!
