Worship is our response to God from our heart, not only on Sunday mornings but coursing through our entire lives. The Worship Arts ministry aims to guide everyone who attends EP to be true worshippers, living sacrificially and serving and adoring our God in spirit and truth. Whether you are an adult, teen, or child, this is for you.

The Worship Choir is the largest worship-leading ensemble at EP, leading others to express adoration to the Lord in response to who he is and all he has done on our behalf. Whether leading worship on a Sunday or practicing in a rehearsal, we purpose to be worshipers who bring glory to God with our hearts, minds, and voices—in short, with our whole being.
If you are an adult or teen singer and would like to try us out, we invite you to join us at our regularly scheduled rehearsal this fall on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. No audition required.
We also offer Music Reading 101 on Wednesday from 6:30 to 7 p.m. in Room 121B directly before choir rehearsal. This class introduces the fundamentals of music notation, ear-training, and sight-singing. While this class will pair with what we do in choir rehearsals, you do not have to be in choir to take this course.
Auditions: June 13 | Performances: Saturday, August 17, at 2 & 7 p.m.
Esther is a full-length, two-act “Broadway style” musical with 15 vocal numbers and roles for upwards of 30 cast members. It’s the story of an orphaned Jewish girl who becomes Queen of Persia, and discovers that her people are to be annihilated by royal decree.
Join Esther, Mordecai, the king’s “stooges” and more as Esther is confronted with this truth: perhaps this is the moment for which she was created.
Directed by Angela Buehler. For ages 10 through adult. Auditions are June 13 with callbacks on June 14. Rehearsals are August 5-17. Performance on August 17 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. To register for an audition or for more information, please contact Jamie Stadler.
