I copied the description of this church from their webpage.

We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church located in Colville, WA.  We are a Reformed church.  Our prayer is to reach out to this world with the good news of the gospel.  We proclaim God’s free grace in Christ, we worship our Lord in Spirit and in truth, and we seek to grow in unity and maturity in the Lord.

Emmanuel Presbyterian Church…is a worshiping body of believers, united to the Lord Jesus Christ by faith and nourished by means of the public ordinances of Christ’s Church. We are a local congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, a conservative, Reformed, and Presbyterian denomination.

The Word “Orthodox”…

…in our name means: “committed to correct teaching and doctrine.” We are unswervingly committed to the whole Word of God as the divinely inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word from God — the only rule of faith and godliness.

I took these photos in August while visiting our son and daughter in law.

We are having a beautiful weekend here in the Seattle area. We celebrated Dear’s birthday yesterday and tomorrow we are looking forward to a start of a new series at church called God and Politics. Should be interesting and of course it’s timely. Hope you are having a peaceful weekend.

Holy Rosary in Tonasket, Washington. The whole city of Tonasket was on level 3 evacuation notice last week. The level was later lowered.

These churches are in areas of Washington that have been on fire watch and evacuation notice. We continue to pray for containment of the many fires still burning in Washington State. We have a mountain range between us and the major fire areas and the last couple days the smoke has traveled over the Cascade Mountain range and is hanging in the air in Western Washington. The setting sun was orange yesterday. Rain without lightning would be a very welcome event.

Linking up to InSPIREd Sunday with Beth and Sally!

Today for our Sunday Worship the church doors were closed and we had over 2000 volunteers go out to our area schools to spruce up the grounds and help teachers in their classrooms get ready for the new year. Community Serve Day is a great event that we have the privilege to participate in as a church every year. Here’s a collage of Dear getting areas ready for fresh paint before the event today. Today he painted the brick wall that he pressure washed on Friday. I helped in one of the classrooms doing whatever the teacher asked of me.
