Worship and Music

The worship life at First Presbyterian Church Port Angeles revolves around our Sunday morning worship services held at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.  These services seek to meet the spiritual needs of the congregation through preaching the word of God, Scripture reading, music, and prayer.

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month as well as Christmas Eve and Maundy Thursday. During Lent we meet on six Wednesday’s from Ash Wednesday until the week before Easter for dinner and Lenten Vesper’s Services. In August our youth lead the service for Youth Sunday.   

A worship associate assists the pastor in leading the worship services along with the worship team and our organist. Music is an important part of our worship services with a worship team for each service. Special music, provided by soloists and musicians from the congregation, enhances and supplements the music throughout the year. Our music selections vary from modern Christian music, to hymns and classics of the church.  Our coordinator of Worship and Music coordinates the special music, and provides opportunities for ensembles, soloists, and special choirs.  

Childcare is available during the worship service for children under 7 years-old. A children’s sermon is presented as part of the worship service after which the children under 7 years of age can stay or go to childcare.

The Gift of Music

Pastor Matt preached in November on sharing your gifts. That helped to give me permission to share the gift of music with my church family. I have made a video tape of several hymns and songs for our FPCPA family to watch and share on First Presbyterian Church’s YouTube channel. It’s called, “Anna’s Gift – Hymns of Worship.” We made this video before the new sound system was installed so the audio quality is a bit uneven. Even so, I hope it is something you will enjoy.
My unending thanks to helpers Wayne Brown and Paul Stutesman who patiently worked with me to produce this and also thanks to wonder-worker Lauren Corder who put it all together.
Blessings on you all. Thank you. I miss seeing everyone sitting in the pews on Sunday. Know that while I was playing I was thinking of you. Please feel free to share the link (https://youtu.be/kbG9kS6bMi4) with family and friends.
With love, Anna Nichols
