    November’s WOW: First Wednesdays promises to be big fun for everyone. Bingo is an old-time game that originated in Italy around 1530, but has become more and more popular in the U.S.

  2. News : Feasibility Study Update

    As we shared in May, Westminster is undergoing a feasibility study this fall led by Rev. Tom Norwood of Horizons Stewardship.

    This study builds on the work of WPC’s strategic plan and facilities master plan. Many of you provided feedback on this master plan at meetings this past fall and winter.

    Our goal in this study is to gauge interest in a potential capital campaign and receive your feedback on a Preliminary Statement of Opportunity. Your feedback will help shape a report on a potential capital campaign that Rev. Norwood will bring to the Session at the end of November.

    The feasibility study is gathering feedback via:

    • Personal interviews with key stakeholders
    • An email survey that will be sent to a cross-section of the congregation next week
    • An in-person gathering on October 25. We invite and encourage you to join us that evening for dinner and a time to learn about how the feedback you provided on the facilities master plan is shaping our present vision. Please RSVP for dinner.

    This is an exciting time in the life of our church! Your presence, your feedback, and your prayers are essential as we discern together the what we feel God is calling us to do.

  4. News : New Name for Facilities & Grounds

    To better represent the committee’s scope and focus, the Facilities & Grounds Committee will now be known as the Property Management Committee. The committee’s mission – to be responsible for the policies, maintenance, contracts, and planning relating to the church’s physical plant – remains unchanged. If you have questions about the committee, please contact chair Jeremy Trantham.


  5. News : Pastor Leon Dorleans to Guest Preach

    We’re excited to welcome Pastor Leon Dorleans as our guest preacher on Sunday, October 22!

    Pastor Leon is the Founding Director of Haiti Outreach Ministries (HOM). Over the last 25+ years, he has guided HOM on the ground in Haiti, leading efforts to build churches, schools, and clinics, as well as developing the leaders in Haiti needed to sustain the ministry. Westminster’s Haiti Medical Mission Team works with HOM’s clinics and schools, and worships with them, on their trips.

    We are grateful for these wonderful partners and look forward to hearing Pastor Leon’s message.
