What to expect on your first visit to Eagle River Presbyterian Church (ERPC)
ERPC is located at 455 Nottingham Ranch Road, two churches are on the road, and ERPC is the church at the very end of cul-de-sac. ERPC was designed to have the look of a home and we hope you feel the warmth when you enter. We welcome anyone to ERPC to worship our Lord and Savior. We are an active congregation, so dress for your comfort. Members might be going skiing after church so ski clothes are welcome or in the summer ready to go on a hike after fellowship.
The morning service begins at 9:30 a.m. You can enter from either the west or north entrance that lead into our narthex area. Odds are you will be greeted by Stan, part of our Welcome Team. If you need child care, it is provided for all ages of children. Take the stairs down by the north door, Shannon and Team will sign in your children. Children’s Ministry tries to match up with the sermon Pastor Rob is doing each week.
Len usually begins his prelude music 5 minutes before the start of service. We hope you find this time to begin to prepare your heart and mind for worship. The morning service is what we call a blended service. We have a mix of contemporary praise music and traditional hymns. We use traditional liturgies in the service.
In the pews are several cards. Prayer cards if you, family or friends are in need of prayer. We have a prayer team that will get the information and you will be in ERPC prayers. Please fill out the card and place in the offering basket. Welcome card, if you are new to the church or area, please take time to let us get to know you. If you would like to be on our email list please mark accordingly. Also when you return the card to the Welcome table, we would like to give you a gift for being part of the ERPC for the day.
Our services also might have a baptisms, new members joining our church and communion is served by intinction the first Sunday of the month.
We take an offering each week. The cup that is passed goes into our local need fund. This helps members or people in the community that need a little help. The money in the baskets goes into our general fund.
We hope Pastor Rob’s message provides you reflection on your relationship with God & Jesus. He is known to give “homework” assignments, so be prepared to think the following week upon the message.
The morning service is usually finished by 10:45 p.m. You are more than welcome to join us in the Fellowship Hall on the south end of the church on the main level. We have strong coffee, light snacks and good fellowship.
The Winter Journey Evening Service (Seasonal)
The Journey Service begins at 5 p.m. This is our contemporary and informal service. So if you had a day on the slopes, a bike ride or just getting into town, we welcome you for this service. Coffee is on before the Journey service. On average 20-40 people attend this service.
The evening service music program is contemporary and you will see Carl’s one- of -kind percussion instrument. Pastor Rob's message is the same as the morning service. Communion is served at the evening service.
The Journey usually ends at 5:45 pm.
