The purpose of Elysburg Presbyterian Church is to be a visible demonstration of God’s Power and Grace as we glorify God in praise and worship, serve others in love, share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ, bring people to active involvement in the church, and strengthen one another as we mature in Christ.

Leadership Team:
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
