 Ministries

 

Worship

Worship in our historic Victorian Church is central to our life together.  Inspiring services of worship for children, youth and adults are held Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. in our beautiful sanctuary.  Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.  Special services are held on Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday and other times of the year. 

 

 

Children are very important to us and participate in worship on a regular basis.  There is a special Time with Young Disciples during worship.  A quiet room with a speaker and a view of the sanctuary is available.A mid-week service of worship and reflection also is held, at 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays.

 

 

Music

Music provides an inspirational setting for our worship.  The Chancel Choir and other musical groups participate in leadership during worship.

 

Our 125+ year old pipe organ is the oldest organ in Washington still in its original setting.  Concerts featuring well-known organists are held periodically.

 

The Chancel Choir rehearses at 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays at the church and new singers are always welcome.

Shepherds

Our Shepherding ministry provides a caring connection and support network, and facilitates communication, among our church family.  Our Shepherds are volunteers from within our congregation; each Shepherd cares for a "flock" of 6 to 12 church families within their neighborhood through visits, phone calls, e-mail messages and greeting cards.

 

Prayers & Squares

This prayer ministry meets the third Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. to produce handmade quilts that are provided to those in need. 

 

Centering Prayer Group

This group meets at the church weekly, on Wednesday from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m.  All are welcome.

 

Stephen Ministry

Our church sponsors an ecumenical program that trains and equips men and women as Stephen Ministers to provide Christian care to individuals in time of need.  These lay ministers provide support, listen empathetically and maintain confidentiality as they make themselves available to those in crisis.  Those interested in participating are welcome -- call the church office.

 

ECHHO

ECHHO (Ecumenical Christian Helping Hands Organization) was founded in 1997 by Stephen Ministers from our church to help meet unmet needs among the elderly and disabled in Jefferson County.  ECHHO's volunteer corps, drawn from throughout the county with significant First Pres participation, drives folks to medical appointments from Port Angeles to Seattle, and assists with errands, shopping and household tasks.  ECHHO's staff loans hundreds of pieces of medical equipment each year.  To learn more about ECHHO, visit its website.
