  3. Sermons : The Antidote to Idolatry

    Psalm 106:1-6,19-23
    Exodus 32:1-14

    Part of me appreciates the peoples’ honesty.

    “When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, “the people gathered around Aaron and said to him, ‘Come, make gods for us, who shall go before us; as for this Moses…we do not know what has become of him.’” Moses had been gone a while, so they turned to his number two man: Aaron, make gods for us, we’ll worship something else.

    At least the Israelites name it. Too often, we don’t.

    We don’t say, “I’m going to quit the church and start worshipping my porch and the New York Times, the entire glorious paper, ALL morning. I want to do something on Sundays that is a little more relaxing and doesn’t ask me to do anything.”

    We certainly don’t say, “I go to church, but my life demonstrates I worship other things, the things we have, our great educations, stellar resumes.”

    We are caught. We want to – I do, I am sure you do – we are here because we find something compelling about Jesus and we want to follow him. But we get stuck. We get overwhelmed. We lose our nerve, and the world comes creeping in…

  4. 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.
