WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON.
We are located on the northern part of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula and are a congregation of about 200 members affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The First Presbyterian Church of Port Angeles is a community of people of all ages who believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and who seek to follow His teachings. We come together to worship God, to grow in our love and support for each other, and to learn about God's will for our lives. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we go out to the community and world to share our faith and to serve others. If you are looking for a caring church family, we offer two worship services every Sunday, so plan to visit us soon.

... AN IMPORTANT UPDATE ! ...
First Presbyterian Church building is closed until further notice.
The office will be open the usual hours, but may close at times depending on staff situations. Please do not come in if you are not feeling well or sick with a fever. Please call the office if you have a concern or need instead of stopping by.
All in-person worship services between March 16-April 30th have been suspended. We are examining our technical capabilities to record or live stream Sunday worship services and have an update for you later in the week as to how you can worship from home. Also, you may take a Lenten vespers service bulletin with you to worship at home--we will email the Scripture passages and lectio divina instructions weekly. Bear with us as we adjust to the technical requirements needed.
Our deacons will be checking in with their flocks to make sure everyone receives this message and that we have up-to-date email and contact information for our members and friends.
Understand that the calendar reflects an automatic list of events. Since the building is closed, the services and events are cancelled with the Social Distancing order. Look at the latest Highlights for the current calendar.

Dear Friends in Christ,
We have been watching the news with concern as information is released daily about the spread of the coronavirus around the world and right here in Washington. Although there are few reported cases of the virus in Clallam County as of this writing, it is helpful to take precautionary measures. With that in mind, I would like to share with you some of the precautions we are implementing at FPCPA to minimize health risks to our staff, congregation, and community.
First of all, please follow the standard practices during cold and flu season. If you are feeling sick or have any respiratory symptoms, please stay home and take standard precautionary measures. Do the normal things you would do if you have a cold. Wash your hands, cover your cough, and refrain from touching others. Many of our congregants have weakened or compromised immune systems, and it is important that they feel safe and cared for in our church, at all times.
We will continue to monitor the situation and send updates via our Facebook Page, website and via email as updates become available.
Additional information about Covid-19 can be found at these websites:
Please continue to pray for those infected and affected, for those in the medical and scientific fields who are combating the virus, and for all those who may feel anxious. We ask that Christ will bring strength, comfort, and healing to all.
