Welcome to Evergreen Presbyterian Church!

We love the fact that you're here, and interested in our Church. But more importantly, it is our prayer that this website serves as a tool to point you to God, so that you too might experience the blessing of being part of The Body of Christ. The Church is not merely brick and mortar, but rather it is the living, breathing parts of the Body of Christ - so that we all are the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Welcome, and we hope to see you soon!

New Here?

Walking into a new church can be intimidating and terrifying depending on your previous church experience. If you are considering attending one of our worship services, we pray that you would take the step and come check it out!

Young Adult Book Study

Tuesday, April 10 - Tuesday, May 22

All Young Adults are invited to gather each Tuesday night between April 10 and May 22 as we read the book Crossing the Waters by Leslie Leyland Fields. We will meet in the Session room at 5:30 each Tuesday. 


About the book: The Gospels are dramatic adn incredibly wet, set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.  Yet, we've missed much of this perspective--until now.  Leslie Leyland Fields, a seasoned Alaskan fisherwoman, leads us across the waters of time and culture out onto the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament beside the ragtag fishermen-disciples.  Her own story and her fresh insights will challenge your understanding of Jesus and what it means to "Come, follow me."

All adults are invited to join Pastor Joe for a lectionary bible study on Wednesday evenings from April 11 through May 16 from 5:30-6:15pm .We will discuss the upcoming Sunday's gospel text.
