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.


Our Wednesday evening Lenten worship services will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 6th, with a delicious Soup Supper from 5:30-6:15 PM followed by our Ash Wednesday Service with imposition of Ashes. The Holden Village Vespers Services will begin on March 13 with our Soup Supper at 5:30 followed by the Vespers Service and will continue on March 20, March 27, April, 3 and April 10. The vespers service, written by Marty Haugen, is a beautiful, flowing and meditative prayer service. Traditionally Lent is a time for reflection, to review where we’ve been, and where we are going, in our life with Christ as we move toward Holy Week and Easter Sunday.
At our Lenten services we will focus on the "I am" statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. In these statements Jesus uses the images of light, bread, a gate and good shepherd, a vine with branches, the way, the truth and the life, and finally the resurrection to describe himself.
For our Lenten Soup Suppers to be a success we need six people to bring soup each Wednesday evening. We also need people to bake bread or buy rolls and to help cleanup. Our Lenten Soup Suppers and Vespers services are a wonderful opportunity to share a meal and worship together as we journey as a community through Lent. Soup, bread making, and cleanup sign-ups will be posted starting February 17th in the Fellowship Hall.
We hope you will join us for a rewarding and spiritual walk through the weeks of Lent. Contact Paula Mitchell 360.477.4880, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions.
