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.


September 22nd, 4-5 pm - Webster Woods in the open grassy area
Come honor our precious Earth and acknowledge our role in caring for creation. Bring a sample of water from a local water source to be joined with others at the celebration. Bring a chair if desired and an umbrella.

We are a people of many faith traditions united by our common concern about climate change and our commitment to daily practice of care for the Earth.

We are informed and inspired both by ancient traditions and modern science. We seek a spirituality that is responsive to the gifts of nature in all forms, including the human capacities for reason and compassion.

We proclaim our kinship with all of creation.

We acknowledge the ways in which our current relationship with the Earth is broken, and we seek reintegration through an active spiritual practice of connecting to nature.

We acknowledge the effect of our actions on the greater whole, including those most vulnerable to a changing climate and compromised natural systems.

We accept our urgent obligation to build a new framework for the future based on reciprocity, reconciliation, and hope for the flourishing of all the Earth.

We seek to inspire change and to serve as an inspirational resource for individuals and our larger society.

We commit to open dialog and relationship with people of all faiths and beliefs. Together, we explore new ways of being that are vibrant, inclusive, and responsive to all life.

Call Martha Bell with any questions.
