What's Hot




On August 7
12 persons were baptized by immersion
in the EPC courtyard.

On a warm Sunday afternoon in August, 12 beautiful souls were immersed in water and rose again, made new in Christ. 

With about 50 members and family there to witness, Dr. Bruce Spear administered the sacrament of baptism in a pool placed in the shaded courtyard of EPC. To see a video of this wonderful event, click here.

What's Hot

GRASS HAT GALS DRAW CROWD AT
EPC BARN DANCE

Some 30 to 40 EPCers gathered Saturday night, October 22, to enjoy the country and bluegrass music of the Grass Hat Gals and kick up their heels under the direction of square dance caller Jus Judd del Sol. The event took place in the pavilion at Casey Jones Park in Elizabeth.

The Grass Hat Gals, four women who love Jesus and love to pick and strum, hale from Colorado Springs. Their vocal harmonies on all the old gospel tunes kept the crowd tapping their toes, and their instrumentals provided great background as del Sol instructed dancers in the fine art of square dancing. 

The barn dance is one of many family life events sponsored each year by Elizabeth Presbyterian Church as part of the church's effort to promote authentic community. For more on our family life activities click here.

Del Sol, who lives and works in the Elizabeth area can be reached at 303-646-4629.
