Sequim Worship Center By Sequim Worship Center Were you as surprised as we were to see all of the signs of spring bursting forth so early in the year? With everything already seeming to be in bud or bloom it leaves one to wonder if winter really is over or will we be surprised by a late cold snap? Weather, it’s something that everyone talks (complains?) about, but no one seems to do anything about. Have you heard that before? It is one of those absurd things that people say because they don’t really like what’s going on, but can’t do anything about it. It is an area that we tend to feel totally helpless about. The weather isn’t the only area of our lives that can feel that way. In so many ways we can get to the place where we feel like our lives have gone spinning out of control. It is in such times that we look for a place of security, a place of hope. At Sequim Worship Center, we like to see ourselves as people who may not have it all figured out, but are on the

journey to discover God’s plan for our lives. The more that we can put things in their proper places the easier it is to handle the rest of what life throws at us. So that leads us to the really big question; “How do we put things in their proper places?” At Sequim Worship Center there are four areas that we like to focus on. The first is Worship. When we take the time to give God His proper due it makes it easier to find our place in His plan. Worship is all about giving Him the things that He is worthy to receive. As creator of all that is He is worthy of our praise and honor. This involves bringing all that we are, acknowledging who He really is. The next step in our journey is to Investigate His Word. As our creator, He knows more about us than we do. Included in that knowledge is a plan for our very best. It is unfortunate that many people mistakenly think that God’s Word is all about rules designed to keep them from having “fun.”

Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette

The truth is God’s Word is the revelation of Himself to us and the instruction manual for living the best possible life you can. It is meant to help us live lives that are filled with purpose and hope rather than destruction and despair. Like any prescription, it only works if you use it. The third area of focus is learning to Relate to Him and each other in the best possible ways. This is the doing part of what we found by investigating His Word. All of God’s instructions come down to the basic commands, “Love God completely” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This kind of love involves putting others interests and well being above our own. This is not natural for any of us, but it is a process that we can learn and practice. There is no better place to do that than in a community like a church family with others who have chosen to follow the same path. The fourth point of our directional compass is to Engage our world. At Sequim Worship Center, we view our purpose as “Sharing Good News from the edge of the Olympic Mountains

to the Ends of the Earth.” Engaging our world simply means sharing what we have learned and received with others. This is a multifaceted opportunity. It can be as close as sharing care for a neighbor who may be going through a difficult time to supporting missionaries who serve on the other side of the globe. It is the investment of our lives through our time, talents and/or treasure to make a difference in someone else’s life just as that difference has been made in ours. As I said before, it’s not that we have it all figured out, we just want to share the discoveries that we have found in our journey. If these areas of Worship, Investigation, Relationships and Engaging our world (or W.I.R.E.) interest you, we invite you to take a closer look. It would be an honor to share in your journey with you. We really can do this better together than alone. Sequim Worship Center meets each Sunday at 10:45 a.m. at 640 N. Sequim Ave., next to the Sequim Library. It is not about trying to change the things we can’t like the weather. It’s about changing the things we can like us.

St Matthew... where families worship as a family. Mercy Our family ministry involves many things including the Radio Broadcast “Our Family to Yours” on KONP. We also offer many parenting education opportunities as well as financial planning classes. As well as providing “Caring for Caregivers,” a ministry to support caregivers who care for family members. Another way in which we strive to show the mercy of Christ is through The Capernaum Center For Autism. This is a ministry of St. Matthew that is dedicated to walking alongside families in our community touched by Autism with the peace of Christ.

This is done through engaging the community impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders through respite, navigation and therapy services. You are also invited to participate in our Reverse Pot-lucks. Every three months we collect hot and cold dishes that we distribute to local domestic violence shelters. We also have weekly free community dinners each Wednesday. Also, we look forward every year to participating in our Giving Tree, collecting Christmas gifts for several families in our area.

Our Mission is to be the living evidence of the mercies of Christ.

Witness “Go…” this command of Christ we take seriously. We reach out into the darkness being ambassadors of the one who called us into the light. Of course, many of our programs double as evangelism efforts, the Community Free Dinner, or the work done through the Capernaum Center. However, the ways we intentionally spread the news of Christ is through the work of the ladies guild, the Lutheran Women Missionary League. We also have booths at the fair, street canvassing programs, as well as annual events. Since 2010 we

have had the “Our Family to Yours” radio broadcasts; globally we support a missionary in East Africa and anoth-er missionary in Shanghai China. We also have a web ministry via our website and Facebook page. Look for even more to come!

Life Together Life together is centered around our mercy and witness ministries. However, in addition to these activities, programs such as our “Member and Family Sundays” on the fifth Sun-days through the year we come together for a hike, BBQ, or any number of activities, for the opportunity to live as a family. There are also marriage enrichment workshops provided every year. additionally, we have an annual picnic, Semi Annual Shooting competition at the Peninsula Rifle & Pistol Club, a weekly Men’s Breakfast, a monthly ladies Lunch Bunch, serving opportunities, and so much more. 531256418

We are a member of the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church. We believe and teach that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Word of God teaches that we are all conceived and born sinful and are under the power of the devil until Christ claims us as his own. We would be lost forever unless delivered from sin, death and everlasting condemnation. But the Father of all mercy and grace has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who atoned for the sin of the whole world, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. Faith Lutheran Church and Preschool exist to help people find meaning, purpose and direction throughout life as we journey through life on our way to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ. Our many and varied ministries exist to give practical strength, direction and help to real people who live their lives daily with spouses, family, school and work. Our church is served by our pastors,

the Rev. Steven Eaton and the Rev. Roger Stites. Our preschool staff assists parents to see that their children receive a solid education that is Christ-centered. Our youth groups have activities for people from infancy through adulthood. Our Bible study classes are varied, offered not only on Sundays but throughout the week as well. Our music programs and choirs cover the entire spectrum of interests and ages. Our worship features very practical and life-related teaching and strengthening from in-depth study of the Scriptures and worship featuring two thousand years of Christian tradition and depth. At Faith Lutheran Church there is something for everyone, regardless of age and interests. Our staff and people are accessible and here to help. We invite you to come visit and ask questions. Join us for worship at 8:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. every Sunday!

First United Methodist Church By First United Methodist Church First United Methodist Church of Port Angeles was founded in 1890 and has stood at the corner of east Seventh Street and south Laurel Street since 1928. The congregation is proud of its deep local roots and United Methodist affiliation that connects the church with congregations around the world. Becoming Disciples of Jesus Christ At First United Methodist Church, there is an emphasis on becoming disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is a lifelong journey, so there are many opportunities to expand and deepen faith and Biblical understanding. Bible studies and Sunday school classes are weekly occasions to dig deeply into the Scriptures, exploring their context and meaning. Hard questions and lively discussions are encouraged. Small groups convene in the spring and fall to read, discuss and learn together. Connections formed in small groups provide circles of encouragement and support for faith journeys. Tuesday morning prayer breakfasts are open to anyone with a desire to pray for the community, the world and those who gather. Two worship services are held on Sunday mornings. An informal 8:30 a.m. service in the Social Hall gathers worshippers around tables for coffee,

fellowship and shared worship. A service at 11 a.m. is held in the Sanctuary, where the high ceiling, stained glass and choir add to a more traditional atmosphere. A fellowship time follows the second service. “The Church has Left the Building” Mission is vital to this congregation and is extended both locally and abroad. The church reaches beyond this community with mission trips, ongoing support to an orphanage in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a covenant missionary in Nepal. The congregation hosts and organizes the Friday Night Friendship Dinner, serving a free, hot dinner to up to 150 people each week since 1992. Women are invited to become part of the very active United Methodist Women unit that annually raises more than $14,000 for local and global missions. Monthly discussion circles and general meetings provide fellowship and support. The UMW Clothes Closet offers free clothing to men, women and children of the community, and is maintained by church and community members who donate, wash and organize gently used clothing. A recent partnership with Dry Creek School supports students and teachers with tutoring and classroom help, financial donations and gifts of clothing and school supplies.

Knitters and crocheters gather weekly at the church and create prayer shawls to share comfort and warmth with the community. Quilters meet twice a month to sew baby quilts for the local hospital’s newborns. Visitors Expected! You are welcome to this warm congregation and are invited to join in worship and other gatherings. Recent upgrades have made the building more warm and welcoming and include new heat pumps, a new wheelchair-accessible east entry and renovation of the church’s entry and welcome halls.
