For our web visitors...

Dear Friend,

When my family and I came to Ellensburg, we had the same concerns many have when they come to a point of change in their life. Will we like the area? Will we find a nice neighborhood? What will the schools be like? Where do we shop? Will we make new friends as good as our old friends? There were so many important decisions that had to be made so quickly.

Because we came to Ellensburg to join a church, we never had the difficult decision of finding a new church - or for many, deciding if church was going to be a part of our life. Yet, you may be reading this because your wondering if our church, or any church, is for you.

You may be new in the community and looking for a place to connect. You may have lived here many years and are just now feeling a need to become established in a church family. You may have gone to church for a time in your life and now have drifted away for no clear reason.

Some of you may not be sure who God is, or wonder if there is a God at all. I want you to know that whatever situation you find yourself in - from the committed Christian to the honest seeker of God - First Presbyterian can be a warm and open place for you.

I hope the material on our web site will help you acquaint yourself with the ministries, services, and activities of our church. But I hope even more that you will see us not simply as a place of programs and activity, but as a family who are gathered to love, serve, care, and grow in the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

If there is any way in which we can be of help to you, please do not hesitate to call! We hope to see you soon.

Warmly in Christ,

Pastor Al Sandalow
