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).
If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming church family that really cares for one another, we invite you to visit our church for worship on Sundays. We also offer other fellowship groups and bible studies opprotunities during most weeks of the year.
Take a look at our website and see how we can be of help to you and how you can be involved. Contact us by email or telephone for more information.
CHURCH INFORMATION MEETINGS SET FOR NEWCOMERS
We are excited about life at First Presbyterian Church and we want you to be apart of it. Whether you become a member or not, we want you to understand who we are and how you can get involved. Some of you are members but have questions about some aspects of our life together. Some of you are not members but want to know how to become one. Some of you may simply want to get to know others in a small group setting. You may also wonder about the process we will follow to find a new pastor. It can all be quite confusing without clear information. To help everyone, Pastor Ted has scheduled Informational Meetings to cover what it means to be a Presbyterian here at First Presbyterian Church of Port Angeles. The first of these meetings will take place on Saturday, June 18th, from 9 until noon. It will be an informal time of teaching and sharing in a fun atmosphere. Identical meetings will also take place from 9-12 on Saturdays, July 9th and August 13th. Among the items that will be offered as a follow-up will be the opportunity to meet with the Session to become a formal member of the Church. While that will be offered, there is no obligation implied by attending these meetings. Just come and enjoy a conversation with Ted and with others about life at FPCPA.
