Presbyterian Women of Ellensburg Presbyterian Church is a group that welcomes all women of the church to participate. The Board is made up of officers (president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer) and four members at large. The meetings are open to any woman who would like to attend to listen or share. Presbyterian Women give time and money to various projects within the church and the community.
Presbyterian Women’s main fund-raising event is the Christmas Craft Bazaar held each November. On Tuesday mornings from March to November a crafty group of ladies meets at the church to make items using a variety of ideas and materials to sell at the Bazaar. The congregation is welcome to make craft items at home and donate them for sale. In the month of May each year we celebrate all women with our Mother Daughter Banquet.
The Board of Deacons is a group of men and women whose primary desire to serve is based on Scripture following the example of Jesus Christ. The focus is on serving those in need whether with spiritual, physical and/or emotional support – both within the community of faith and beyond.
Deacons also help with preparing Holy Communion and carrying out activities for Sunday worship.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42
We believe that fellowship is an important part of any Christian community. We welcome you to join us for these fellowship events!
Quilting: Tabitha’s Peaceful Piecemakers
A group of women who quilt or want to learn to create and sew unique charity quilts for those in need or as special gifts. The group meets at the church on Wednesday afternoons from 3 to 7pm and is open to all. Our fellowship combines creativity and fun with service throughout the year.
An unstructured play time for kids aged six and under in the church gym. Parents have community together and supervise their own kids, no childcare provided. Each week we pull out various toys for kids to play with. The clean-up routine starts 10 mins before the end of each session: kids and parents clean-up side-by-side and sing a goodbye song to close the time together. As a courtesy to each other, please stay home if anyone has cold or flu symptoms. Park on the east side of the church by the chain link fence with a lawn inside. Come in that side door straight into the gym. Hope to see you!

Life is meant to be shared! God intends for us to experience life together, to be known and to be in fellowship with one another and that extends beyond showing up at a worship service on Sunday mornings. It means active participation with one another in meaningful relationship together. Our hope is that all who worship here would become involved in a small group, and that these groups would be ongoing throughout the year. Take this opportunity to find out the benefits of fellowship, shared learning, encouragement in your spiritual walk, and help in your times of need - all found in small groups.
The purpose of adult education is twofold. First, Christian discipleship is a lifelong endeavor. We are continually being formed by the Holy Spirit into the image of Christ and we resist being conformed to the world by the renewal of our minds through the study of God’s Word in fellowship with other Christians. Secondly, it is our obligation to model for future generations the importance of continued Christian discipleship and participation in the Body of Christ.
Adult Sunday School
Adult Sunday School meets in the Fellowship Hall between services (10:15 to 11:15 a.m.) for an 8-week course during Fall and Spring quarters.
