Welcome to East Woods Presbyterian Church! We hope our website is a helpful way for you to begin to discover who we are and, much more important, who God is and what God is up to here.

The church, including East Woods, is people.  Not a building, or an event, or a denomination, or anything else, but people - imperfect, broken, called, forgiven, redeemed, empowered, sent, centered in the One who has saved us, and is continually saving us. You, like all people, are made in the image of God, and nothing can separate you from the love of God that is revealed in Jesus Christ. 

East Woods is a welcoming place not because we’re super nice (although many are), but because we, too, have been welcomed by God. It’s our pleasure and our honor to welcome you!

Questions You May Ask if You are New

  • Considering a visit?

    It’s our pleasure and privilege to warmly welcome you into our community as an honored guest.  Our desire is for you to connect with others and to encounter the living God through engaging Christian formation opportunities for all ages, thoughtful prayer, creative worship, and inspired teaching.  Please join us following worship for hospitality and refreshments in our Evergreen Hall.

  • When and where are your services?

    We meet every Sunday for worship at 10:00 a.m. with Connecting Time activities before the service from 9:00-9:45 a.m.  Our worship services usually last about 75 minutes. 

    We meet at 16210 NE 20th Street in Vancouver, WA, near the corner of 162nd Ave and 20th Street.  There is a Starbucks and Wendy's at the first major cross street.

  • What Should I wear?

    You may wear whatever you like.  You will see a few ties but most people prefer to dress more casually, wearing anything from shorts to khakis, from jeans to skirts. We believe God is much more concerned with our hearts than our outward appearance.

  • What do I have to do?

    Just come as you are.  You will never be singled out or called upon during your visit.  We encourage our guests to stop by our Opportunity Table to receive a special gift and to learn more info about the East Woods community.

  • What about my children?

    We invite all children to participate in our worship.  We have worship bags in the Library for young readers and older elementary students to take and use during the service. We also offer Sunday school during the 10:00 worship service. Students begin in worship and are excused to Sunday school prior to the sermon. You may choose to drop off your younger children in the Nursery before worship begins. Please feel comfortable doing what best meets the needs of your family.  

  • What is the worship service like?

    Our worship is neither “contemporary” nor “traditional” because God, not style, is our object. Our worship is lively, seeking to be vibrantly aware and responsive to God’s presence. We sing old and new, but in a fresh and approachable way. We draw on current expressions of faith, as well as ancient prayers and creeds. No matter your age or background, our worship aims to build unity among all worshipers.
