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.

Sanctuary Open for Silent Prayer and Meditation

Fridays, December 4, 11, and 18, between 1 pm and 6 pm

We are all missing time spent in worship in our beautiful Sanctuary. On the Fridays before Christmas the Sanctuary is going to be open for private, silent prayer and meditation during the hours from 1 pm - 6 pm. Drop in if you like and stay a little while. Bring your own devotional materials or Bible. There will be quiet, meditative music conducive to prayer. As is usual, Covid safety measures will be in place. Please wear a mask and sit socially distant in the pews. Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be on hand if you need them. We hope this quiet time will bring you peace in this Advent season.
