On Sunday, September 15 the First Presbyterian Church of Waukegan will celebrate its installation into the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) with a special worship service beginning at 5 pm.
Pastor David Eikenberry, who has led the church for over 21 years, said "This culminates a process that took over 18 months to complete. More importantly, it reflects a group of Godly elders and a very faithful congregation that decided to take this monumental step in our 155 year history in aligning our church with a denomination that truly honors God and Scripture."
He went on to say "The EPC is evangelical in their zeal for the Gospel, as well as evangelism, missions, and living obediently as followers of Jesus. They are rooted deeply in the Protestant Reformation and the Westminster Confession of Faith as their doctrinal standard, which our Waukegan church has always embraced".
With music being one of the pillars of the church, this event will feature selections by the Westminster Choir, First Presbyterian Philharmonic and bell choir.
The church is located at 122 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., just north of City Hall. Regular worship that morning is at 9:30.
