As part of our mission to spread the word of God, First Presbyterian Church of Elgin hosts several special events. We love a chance for our followers and the rest of the community to get together and socialize.
Below you can review a list of our upcoming events that we would love to personally invite you, your family and friends to visit us and take part of the fun.

This year, we will have an Advent class that begins on December 3 at 9:15 AM in the parlor, and continues for the 4 Sundays of Advent. We have purchased the book, "While We Wait: Living the Questions of Advent", by Mary Lou Redding which is available to you in the office. The book also functions as a work-book. You may contribute $5.00 for the book if you wish. Our class will include lighting of the Advent candles.
I realize that many of you are unable to attend an Advent class on Sunday morning. For those of you who are “on the go” and need something that you can look at on your phone, I recommend Pauses for Advent by Trevor Hudson. You can purchase an electronic version of this daily devotional on Amazon. I also have a couple of copies available in the office.
This year, I am going to include this daily devotional as part of my Advent practice. I find a short reading at the beginning of the day reminds me of the season, and the words continue with me through the day. Let us pause and wait for the birth of our new-born king again this year!
