Welcome. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First Presbyterian Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

My first six weeks with you have been full ones! I have enjoyed leading you in worship, being in Leavenworth and beginning to get to know my way around a little bit. I am still exploring the church building and learning more of the history of the congregation. Twice I have been present for the Community Meal served the fourth Tuesday of the month. Last Tuesday evening, even with the bad weather, we had a dining room full of guests enjoying a wonderful meal. If you have not been to a Community Meal, I encourage you to come down and join in; the food, fellowship and service will lift your spirit. Those who come and eat are grateful for the hospitality and the excellent food. The interaction with all who participate is wonderful. Those who cook and serve seem to be having as good a time as those who eat; even those who are washing the dishes smiles as often as those carrying out food for a friend. Thanks to each of you who make this ministry happen. Lives are being enriched!

We are happy that English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes will return to our church beginning Sunday, April 3rd, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. We have been meeting at the Leavenworth Baptist Church for the past 3 ½ years. We moved there because we had children too old for our nursery and the stairs to additional class rooms were too much for the ESL teachers. At this time there are no children attending with their parents. To register or ask any questions, please call Margie or Darrell Holland, (360) 259-7244.

We served our neighbors another Community Meal on Tuesday, May 24. The weather was threatening but we enjoyed our time together and served 188 meals. So far this year (2016) we have served 658 meals. Another 3 of our members helped serve for the first time - which brings about 45 the total of us who have helped at one time or another. Then there are those who contribute fruit and baked goods! Rev. Soule was everywhere - helping the cooks, praying at the beginning of our meal, chatting, clearing tables, etc. Thank you all for your help!!

Please join us on June 28, 2016 for our community meal.

PW Outing June 18
PW Outing is 18 Jun. The annual spring gathering of the 1st Presbyterian Women will be different this year. Our year’s study was “Come to the Waters”. All ladies are welcome to join us for a tour of the Leavenworth Waterworks and then have a relaxing lunch at Luigi’s. The tour will be at 10:30. Look for details soon. Please save the date!

What a great worship and fellowship.

Thanks to each of you for being part of our PW Gathering. I 'm sorry I didn't record the first part of our morning with the continental breakfast, Cathy's Presbyterian water facts, and our Examen devotion, but our focus was on each other as it should have been.
I know I will have a greater appreciation for the quality and amount of water easily available to me after today's tour. Thanks Maria for setting up our most enjoyable luncheon at Luigi's.
