Faith Lutheran Church of Sequim 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!

Lutherans recognize the many contradictions and idiosyncrasies we encounter daily. A simple division in ‘good’ and ‘bad’ does not do justice to the complexity of life. Lutherans think that all people are sinners and saints at the same time. In one moment they are capable to do incredible deeds of love and in the next moment they act as if their selfish egos were the center of the universe. We always live in the tension of this paradox. The great unifier of the human race is the fact that we all are sinners. Falling short of the glory of God is one thing we all have in common. Because we know we are not better than other people it doesn’t make sense to judge and to condemn, but to welcome all who seek God. We invite you to experience God’s amazing grace in Word and Sacrament, in worship and prayer, in fellowship and social advocacy that brings God’s justice to a hurting world. Help us do God’s work with our hands. You are welcome to come as you are. Bring your darkness and your light, and you don’t have to check your brain at the door. We can handle doubts and questions and even outright unbelief. We don’t give you shallow rules, but together we will build a mature faith that will sustain you in our increasingly complex and secular world.

The philosopher Paul Ricœur calls faith a wager. Lutherans put their money on Jesus. To have faith means for us to trust in Jesus’ promise that a loving God freely bestows his gift of grace on all people. This is truly good news in a society that fiercely believes that you only get what you deserve. Lutheranism is entirely for the underserving. We share in Christ’s resurrection just because God loves us. This perspective on the human condition makes Lutheran theology unique.

We offer a large variety of small groups, classes, special events, and concerts to help people of all generations grow in faith and be active in the community. Our preschool provides a solid Christian education. We are blessed to work with many local mission partners and so we help to transform Port Angeles into a just, healthy and creative community. Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We have been an active part of the Port Angeles Community since 1894.

If you just take one thing away from this ad let it be this: God's grace is upon you! ALWAYS! There is NOTHING you can do or say to lose God's love. Humans will hate you if you don't get your beliefs right, but GOD WILL NOT! If someone tells you otherwise, they're most probably not LUTHERAN.

Spiritual Enrichment Center of Port Townsend Come Home to Unity

What is Unity? Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of the Universal Christ and the power of prayer and co-creation. Unity honors the universal truths in all religions, and respects each individual’s right to choose their spiritual path to the Divine. We seek to celebrate that Divine Presence which unites all of us and our world. Our mantra is “Unity of Port Townsend is an Authentic, Transformative, Spiritual Community.”

Do you consider yourself spiritual rather than religious? Then Unity is for you! Rev. Pamela Douglas-Smith

Authentic...a place where all can honestly share their soul journey & talents. Transformative...a place where each can grow consciously & gracefully at depth. Spiritual...a place where the many, miraculous expressions of Spirit are welcomed.

Peninsula Evangelical Friends Church

Peninsula Evangelical Friends Church

Peninsula Evangelical Friends Church (PEFC) is a Bible-affirming, family-oriented congregation that meets at the corner of North Barr Road and Old Olympic Highway, in the Agnew area between Sequim and Port Angeles. Pastor Jonathan Fodge has just completed his 31st year of ministry among us and in this community. PEFC began in 1935 as a ministry of the American Sunday School Union in the previously unchurched area of Agnew under the leadership of Tom and Alice Norris. In 1947, it was felt that there ought to be a fully functioning congregation in the area, so the leaders sought to join with Oregon Yearly Meeting of Friends Church (OYM), Tacoma Area as the Agnew Friends Church. The first pastor was Ethyl Cowgill. As the congregation grew, the name was later changed to Peninsula Evangelical Friends Church at Agnew, and OYM changed its name to Northwest Yearly Meeting (NWYM). We believe and teach that the Bible is

Between Sequim & Port Angeles on Old Olympic Hwy. 1291 N. Barr Road, Pt. Angeles (360) 452-9105 Pastor Jonathan D. Fodge Ministers: The Entire Congregation

God’s Word from the beginning to the end, and that it is our final and ultimate authority for faith and practice in moral and spiritual life. Our purpose is as follows: We believe God has called us to glorify Him. We seek to bring Him glory by: 1) Exalting Christ first in all areas of our lives, both corporately and as individuals. 2) Making disciples who are . . . a) knowledgeable in God’s Word b) able to apply God’s Word to their daily lives c) bound together in Agape (self-sacrificing) love d) actively concerned for the well-being of the saints. 3) Unleashing the saints to perform the ministry for which God has called and equipped them.

Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church is a caring community of Christians called to reach out to all people in our community and, as much as possible, the world. We welcome everyone, without exception. We extend ourselves to each other as a church family. We offer Christian education for young and older that is challenging and thought provoking. Pastor Jack’s sermons are original, inspiring and based on Bible scholarship. Our book discussion groups are stimulating, and the video presentations help us better understand the history and values of Christian life. This little church with a big heart works tirelessly with local organizations to share God’s love. Our congregation helps with and supports the Sequim Food Bank, Lutheran Community Services, Sequim Health and Wellness Clinic and the Light Lunch Program.

We also hold a community garage sale each summer and the Yuletide Bazaar in the fall. All monies made at these two events are distributed among organizations within the community. Additionally, we open our facilities for AA, NA and Al-Anon meetings, the Gay Straight Alliance for youth and MOSAIC. We also reach out internationally to share God’s love. Handmade quilts, school kits and baby kits are given out through Lutheran World Relief. Assistance is also offered to a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica and mission work in Panama. Jesus showed us the gracious love of God for all people. We are called to do the same by helping others here and throughout the world and welcoming all who visit our small church with the big heart. God’s work. Our hands.

MARCH 2017

2017 seems to be the year of the storm here in our part of the Olympic Peninsula. They may not have been the most drastic, in terms of the actual amount of snowfall or temperatures, but they have been persistent. Just about the time you think that winter has ended and spring is just around the corner, here comes another round. The disciples of Jesus knew a thing or two about storms. Luke chapter 8 gives us one such example. They had entered a boat to travel to the other side of the lake. In the course of their trip a storm came up and nearly swamped the boat. They had a decision to make. Would they focus their attention on the storm that seemed so threatening or would they focus on the Master who was peacefully sleeping in the boat? In their fear they awoke Jesus and questioned His concern for their welfare.

Their focus was on the storm. Jesus quieted the storm and asked them about their faith. We face many different types of storms in our lives. Each of them provides us with the opportunity for fear or for faith. At Sequim Worship Center we are learning together what it means to grow in faith instead of fear. It’s not that we don’t face storms, we all do. The challenge is in learning to direct our focus in the direction of faith. Faith is more about a Person than an attitude. It is not something that we try to conjure up or produce on our own. Faith is the result of a growing relationship with the One we have come to trust. If you would like to participate in this journey of faith we invite you to be our quest Sunday mornings at 10:45. I believe it will be a decision you won’t regret.

CHRIST in Sequim

The Church of Christ in Sequim started when a small number of Christians opened the Bible as their only guide in matters of faith and doctrine and wanted to be truly and only Christians. Each church of Christ is an autonomous group of believers that provides its own leaders, makes its own decisions and chooses its activities from Bible teaching. We honestly desire to be faithful to God’s purposes, to Jesus’ Lordship, and to the Bible’s message. New Testament Christians were human as we are. You will find that our members, as in the first century church, reflect every level of spiritual development. Hopefully, all of our members are mutually committed to growing spiritually and serving Jesus Christ wholeheartedly. Have you been looking for the New Testament Church?

The founder of the Catholic Church is Jesus Christ. Our Church structure is ecclesiastical in nature.

was sold to the County in 1892 for use as the courthouse during the downtown reconstruction period. Queen of Angels Parish has been at its present location at 11th and Oak Street Streets since 1950. At the time “The Holy Angels Church” in Port Angeles was established, the Sequim area was considered part of that parish. A mission church was built in 1916; in 1966 a new mission church was erected; and in 1976, after 60 years as a mission church, St. Joseph was established as a full parish. In July 2011 the two parishes were appointed a single pastor to oversee each parish, and one year later a regional staffing model was implemented with one administrative staff for the two parishes. Today, the two parishes remain separate entities with their own identities, continuing to work as part of the universal Church by combining efforts on committees, consistency in policies, a single weekly bulletin, and joint celebration of Sacraments, etc.

We have volunteers who coordinate some aspect of sacramental preparation ; we rely on the service of volunteer teachers of religious education, leaders of bible study and other faith formation groups, coordinators of crisis pregnancy assistance, and many others. Between the two parishes we have well over 100 groups comprising very active parish communities.

is

What is the Bible? The Bible the Word of God. It is the collection of writings, penned by men, breathed from God, completely without error or contradiction. It is the only true rule, source and norm for any and all teaching of the Christian Church. (2 Tim 3:16) Who is God? The only true God is the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons in one divine being. Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus, whose name literally means " the Lord Saves," descended from Heaven, and through His life, death, and resurrection saved us from all our sins, death, and the power of Satan. It is in the shedding of His blood that we are saved (John 1:29). Christ (meaning "the anointed one") has provided the one thing that will reconcile you to Himself. In the incarnation Jesus was truly both God and man. Being true man, He was able to live a perfect life under the weight of the Law, suffered and died. Being true God, His sacrifice unto death would be sufficient for the redemption of all people throughout all time. (Galatians 3:13) Christ did not stay in the tomb, however, He raised Himself to life winning victory for you and I over the grave. (1 Corinthians 15:55-57) Now having died and been raised, He sits enthroned in Heaven until the proper time of His return when He will raise all the dead to life and usher in a new era of peace with a new heavens and new earth. (Revelation 22) What is sin? Sin is every thought, word, and deed that is contrary to the will of God. (1 John 3:4) It may be helpful to view sin as two groups, equally fatal in how they affect our relationship with God. 1) As the Devil brought sin into the world (1 John 3:8) by tempting Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1-7) we now find ourselves being conceived and born into a broken world and into an immediate need for the Grace of our Lord. (Psalm 51:5) This belief is called Original Sin. This understanding of inherited sin provides insight into the struggle we face every day as we internally fight with temptation that rises up within us. (Genesis 8:21; John 3:6; Romans 5:19) The second category of sin is often referred to as "actual sin." This "type" of sin can be seen in the things that we do not do, but should, and the things we do, but shouldn't. (Matthew 15:19) How am I saved? You are saved because God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

What is the Church? The Church Is the total number of believing people in Christ Jesus our Lord. For more information as to our programs and what we believe, please visit us at:
