One of the best ways of encouraging and supporting one another as we journey toward becoming more like Jesus is to minister to one another. While we can do this in casual, everyday ways, it’s also nice to have a bit of structure. This is why ECRC offers so many ministry opportunities. Each offer fresh ways we can explore, encounter and experience Jesus.
At Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, kids are encouraged to take their own faith journeys, right along with the rest of us. In fact, we devote our children's ministries to helping all children to know God (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), to know that he loves them, and to grow up in him.
Our church is full of people in ministry—people serving as well as people being served by others. It’s this service that makes a church a community. Our goal is to have every adult involved in ministry that utilizes their spiritual gifts and takes advantage of their availability and interest. This is why we offer a wide array of ministries to get involved in—either by serving, being served, or often, both.
There are many resources available at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church and in the local community to bring God’s comfort, help, and direction to those who need some support. God cares not only about our spiritual health, but also about our physical and emotional well-being.
We believe "worship" is the posture we assume in relation to God, our Creator and Savior. When we genuinely hear God's voice and experience the depth of his love through Jesus' sacrifice for us, we are naturally and inevitably grateful. This posture of gratitude is worship.
