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.
