Welcome!

In our hectic and uncertain world, we can easily feel disconnected from others and the truth that will keep us focused on our purpose for living. I trust, as you choose to connect with us, you will find us to be “real.” We are willing to acknowledge our concerns and our joys, while remaining confident of God’s faithful love for each of us, wherever we are at, in our journey.

 

Enjoying genuine and meaningful relationships with one another and with God is a large part of what our family is about.

I cordially invite you to be a part of our growing community of faith at Leicester Evangelical Presbyterian Church. It is my desire that you will discover our church family to be one that is loving, caring and gracious. We encourage everyone who desires to “live life to the fullest” as provided through the person of Jesus Christ, to join with us in this exciting adventure. If I can be of help to you, or if you just want to chat, please feel free to contact me.

Because Jesus Lives,
Pastor David Missel

EPC Essentials

The Essentials of Our Faith

          All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these Essentials:

1. We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever!

2. Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.

3. The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts
to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.

4. Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.

5. The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord.

6. Jesus Christ will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20).

7. The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Announcement

Sunday School

     Grandma’s Sunday School is being offered for parents or guardians who would like to attend a worship service and would like the opportunity for their children to experience learning at their level at the same time. Infants and children are always welcome to remain in the worship service with their parents, but this is an alternative.

Grandma (actually we have several grandmas who will be serving as teachers) will be cooking up some good things for a safe and fun-filled time where your child will be taught the Good News of Jesus Christ. Children will learn through Bible stories, videos, crafts, games, and singing. Grandma is very creative, and she has a variety of recipes for learning about the love of God.

     Grandma’s Sunday School starts in the sanctuary at the 10:30 a.m. worship service. The Nursery will exit early to Fellowship Hall. Children ages 2-8 will then join them after the opening portions of worship. Sunday School will finish at approximately 11:45 a.m. or at the conclusion of the worship service.

We hope you will take this opportunity to worship at Leicester EPC while your child is attending:
Grandma’s Old-Fashioned One Room Sunday School.
