1. News : Summer Kickoff Potluck

    Join the Fellowship Committee for fellowship and delicious food at a Summer Kickoff Potluck on Sunday, June 4, right after the 10am service. We are excited that Tom Meyer with Q-Shack in Raleigh will be providing barbecue chicken, and we ask you to sign up to bring sides and desserts.

    Remember when bringing food to bring enough for your family to eat. We want to make sure we have enough food for everyone! Please RSVP by Wednesday, May 31, so we know how many to count on and how much barbecue chicken to order.

    We look forward to kicking off summer with all of our Westminster families!

  2. News : Calling All Worship Volunteers!

    Worship volunteers are vital to the life of this church. Whether they’re greeting and seating worshippers, lighting the candles, watching over our littlest ones, counting the offering, ensuring that the audio works, or reading the Word, they’re playing a pivotal role in worship.

    A New Sign-Up Process

    Worship volunteer sign-ups are taking place a little differently this year. Volunteers who’ve served in the 2016-2017 year have first dibs on signing up for 2017- 2018 teams until May 28. Then, sign-ups will be open to the whole congregation. Look for a link to online sign-ups in your inbox on May 31, and look for the sign-up table in the Courtyard before/after worship on Sundays, June 4, 11, and 18.

    Online sign-ups for worship volunteers will be done through a separate volunteer website, SignUpGenius, this year. You will still use myWPC to access the final worship volunteer schedule and find subs.

  3. News : Register for VCS by June 1

    Vacation Church School is right around the corner! Register by June 1 to let us know that you or you and your family will be joining us! There will be “active” childcare for children under age 4.

    Who is Building Faith Family Circles for?

    Unlike your typical Vacation Church School, designed for children and led by youth and adults, this three-evening event is for all ages and led by all ages, from age 4 to senior adults.

    Gathering around the shared dinner table, engaging in music and meaningful art projects, and living stories from Scripture, each evening will send us home with seeds for deeper conversation and contemplation.

    Tuesday, June 13 (Matthew 3:13-17)
    Faith Family Circles are Named and Claimed: We will revisit the encounter between John the Baptist and his cousin Jesus.

    Wednesday, June 14 (Matthew 7:12)
    Faith Family Circles are Built on Love and Respect: We will explore the heart of the Golden Rule.

    Thursday, June 15 (John 6:1-14)
    Faith Family Circles Join in the Amazing Works of Jesus: We will become that crowd of hungry folks gathered to be blessed and fed by and through Jesus.
