East Valley Presbyterian Church has served the communities of Otis Orchards, Newman Lake, Liberty Lake, and Greenacres since 1986. Located on Harvard Road, just 2.5 miles north of Liberty Lake, this is a small church in which people see one another as family. The hallmarks of this congregation the warm, welcoming, and loving way in which all newcomers are treated; its traditional-style of worship; its deep exploration of scripture; and, its firm belief in the power of prayer.
We see ourselves as “The Little Church with the Big Heart where people help one another feel safe, loved, and spiritually whole.”
Our pastor is the Reverend Marcia Taylor, a native of Spokane Valley, who has served God with us since 2000.

Welcome to this season of Lent. In our worship over the next six weeks we’re going to be challenged to allow God’s Spirit to take us on a journey into those places in our lives that feel dark, maybe lonely, frightening, oppressive. I know that sounds awful, but at times we need to look at those scriptures where we hear the ways in which people of faith found themselves in such places before. They are important to us because it is so very often in these dark places that we discover just how close God is and how much He’s doing for us.
In Lent, we want to rush through the weeks to the great joy of the Resurrection. But if we only celebrate the new life made available to us, we’ll never truly understand all that it has cost God to bring us here.
So, this Lenten season, we’ll be spending a little time in the darkness in order to better understand the magnitude of the Light. Each week a stone with a word on it will be added to a table at the front of the sanctuary . The words are intended to represent some of the ways through which we can find ourselves in darkness and weighted down by life. And, hopefully, we’ll begin to see more clearly the many ways in which God’s Spirit is already in the darkness ahead of us and with us, working with and in us to guide us through despite our terror, until we ultimately pass through the darkness into the great Light of Christ, stronger in our faith than ever before.
