Congregational meetings have been called for June 25 and July 2 so that the Nominating Committee may present the final candidate for the new class of deacons. The candidate, Jim Young, will be presented twice; at both meetings, nominations may be made from the floor. The vote to approve the nominee as an officer-elect will be held on July 2. See the July 5 newsletter for a bio on nominee Jim Young.

We’ll have an encore presentation of the film “As It Is In Heaven,” which was shown during Lent as part of the Lenten Community Book Read, on Friday, July 14, at 6:30pm in the Parlor.
This 2004 Swedish film tells the story of a famous conductor who, after suffering a breakdown, moves back to the small village where he grew up. Though craving quiet and anonymity, he is persuaded to work with the local church choir, which transforms his life. This quirky, lovely film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 77th Academy awards. “As It is in Heaven” offers a rich portrayal of human longing and suffering, and the redeeming power of love through music.
Come enjoy this movie night with your Westminster friends!
At its May 21 stated meeting, the Session approved a change to the terms of call for Betty’s housing with no resulting net change, and the baptism request for Ruthie Cade Hartman on August 13.
The Session reviewed reports from ten commissions and committees, with special attention to a Facilities & Grounds update indicating that the cost of repairs to the Sanctuary are under budget. There is hope that extra work on the Fellowship Hall can be accommodated. The budget deficit in April was $80,710 and the Ways & Means Commission continues to ask all committees to review expenses to figure out where savings can be appropriately made.
