What to Expect

If you have never visited us, we would love to have you! Below is a description of what you will find when you visit.

Very friendly people – The Port Angeles Church of Christ is known for its welcoming family atmosphere so come early or stay for a few minutes afterward and get to meet some new people.

Casual dress – Come as you are!

Singing – We love to sing, and everyone can participate in praising God from the heart. In the 10:45 AM a cappella service, singing is led up front by a song leader.  The harmonies are beautiful, God receives praise and worship, and hearts are lifted up. No matter if we are singing old time hymns or contemporary songs of praise and adoration, the goal is to encourage one another and “make music in our hearts to the Lord.” (Colossians 3:16)

Scripture Readings – Because we believe in the power of the Word, we will usually have at least two scripture reading each service.  The first reading is a few verses which offer praise to God (usually from Psalms).  The second reading is before the sermon and is generally the text for the sermon. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Sermon – Usually there is a 30 minute lesson from scripture to challenge and inspire you to live a life following Jesus Christ.

Prayers – There are usually at least two prayers led by different men from the congregation. We believe in participation more than “polish” and we love the diversity that comes from different members coming from different walks of life and perspectives. (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)

Communion – Each Sunday we take of the Lord’s Supper because Jesus gave us that practice to do regularly to remember Him. Trays are passed down the aisles, one with bread and one with the cup. Anyone is welcome to participate in this memorial time which is meaningful to anyone who understands the symbolism of the body and blood of Christ. (Matthew 26:26-29)

Offering – A collection tray is passed down each aisle also for the members to give their offering. We do not ask for or expect donations from those who are visiting us and we do not plead for money. Giving is an individual commitment each person makes to God. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
