Ellensburg, WA

Our Church:

The Ellensburg Presbyterian Church is looking for the right individual to join our church family and help with the leadership of our church. We hold two services on Sundays, a traditional and a contemporary service. Membership for the congregation is 157 and our leadership Session is comprised of 5 men and 5 women. Like most, we feel our church is special and unique and here is a sampling of thoughts from some of our members:

• People are friendly, supportive, authentic, and the church is small enough not to get lost.

• We pray for each other, have grace for each other, and bear each other’s burdens.

• Cross-generational relationships, which adds diversity and meaning to our lives.

• Feels like a big Christian family, an authentic Christian community.

• Easy to get involved in small groups and ministries, which enables authentic relationships to develop, but is not high pressure to be involved.

• Love the wisdom and faithful example that comes with the older saints.

• Love that our pastor is knowledgeable with historical facts and presents them well with current events and teaches us from the scriptures. I think he shepherds bravely and honestly.

• Love the liturgy of the service with the confession time.

• Love that we do simple and very special events that we can depend on happening year after year. (Like the Mother Daughter Banquet, church fruit booth at the fair, old school Christmas pageant, etc.)

• Love how volunteers invest in our youth (middle and high school programs).

• Vacation Bible school is one of the favorites for most locals we know.

• Love that pastor Al seems to genuinely care for each and every one of us, young to old, and honors each age group wherever they are at.

• The quilting ministry is special, in that they create quilts for each graduating senior, and church members who are sick or hurting.

• The faithful backpack volunteers who pack weekend meals and pray for those kids receiving the food. But for as much as we love this church, we also know we can do more to serve in the name of Christ.
