CHILDREN & YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
The PRESCHOOL CLASS for 3, 4, and 5 year old's are being introduced to “God’s Big Story” based on stories from Genesis through Acts. Teachers are Sharon Bowman and Marcia Logan. This class is in the Bethlehem room in the east hall of the main floor.
The ELEMENTARY class with teachers Chris Watkins and Marty Melcher is learning from the “Marvel” series of lessons. This study presents Bible stories at a more mature level than for the younger children. The themes present God’s Love, Mercy, the Holy Spirit’s Power, the Holy Sprit’s Work, God’s New Beginnings and God’s Protection. This class meets downstairs in the Bethany room.
Our MIDDLE SCHOOL class is learning from the theme of “Dive”. The units are based on biblical stories, Reformed teaching, and faith habits. The teachers are Rainy Birch and Susan Fisher, meeting downstairs in the Jericho room.
The HIGH SCHOOL class is using two book resources this year. The “Believe It” study will help teens grow spiritually by understanding basic tenants they need to know about their faith and how they are relevant to their faith. The study of “No Easy Answers” will help teens make good decisions in this anything goes world. They will explore the Ten Commandments and examine real life moral problems and ethical dilemmas. This class meets upstairs.
Welcome to the website of the First Presbyterian Church of Port Angeles, Washington. Located on the northern part of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, we are a congregation of over 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.
CHURCH OFFICE HOURS:
MONDAY TO FRIDAY - 9 am to 5 pm - The entrance is in the alley - Use the back stairs or ramp - Handicapped accessible.
NEXT SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22nd - Pastor Paul will be preaching.
His sermon "What a STATE We're In" is based on Matthew 22:15-22.
"Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." We are living once again in an interesting and challenging time of hard edged political and social positions, infighting for global and regional dominance between nations, and numerous movements of social conscience, all demanding claim upon our lives. What are we to do as Christians living in a world that has both eternal and temporal dimensions? What are the limits of government and human institutions and how are we as Christians called to work within them and yet centrally ground our lives on out faith in God? Pastor Smithson will help us explore the Reformation understanding of the "Two Kingdoms" doctrine and how, on this SOOth Anniversary of the Reformation, this reflection might help us in our Christian lives in this day and age.
