    Facilitators: TBA

    Whether it’s cancer, the death of a loved one, a long-term illness, or another significant challenge, we all know someone facing trials. We wonder, “What can I do to help?”

    How many times have you wanted to do the practical thing when someone in your community is in a hard place, but had no idea where to start? In this collection of stories and experiences, we will explore what is actually needed and what is truly appropriate depending on the depth of the relationship.

    April 18 Aperture: Third Wednesdays
    “Ossuaries and the Burials of Jesus and James”
    Professor Jodi Magness
    6:30-8pm | Music Room

    Our guest speaker for Aperture: Third Wednesdays in January is UNC-Chapel Hill Professor Jodi Magness, Kenan Distinguished Professor for Teaching Excellence in Early Judaism.

    In 2002, an ossuary inscribed “James son of Joseph brother of Jesus” surfaced in the hands of a private collector. A few years later, a Discovery Channel documentary and related book claimed that the tomb of Jesus and his family has been found in Jerusalem. In this slide-illustrated lecture, we examine the validity of these sensational claims in light of archaeological and historical evidence for ancient Jewish tombs and burial customs in Jerusalem, including the burials of Jesus and his brother James.

    Dinner – baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls – will be served from 5:45-6:15pm in the Fellowship Hall. Please sign up for dinner at by Monday, April 16.

    Faith Family Circles: Who Counts? 100 Sheep, 10 Coins, and 2 Sons

    Save the Date: July 24-26, 5:30-7:30pm

    This summer’s Faith Family Circles (Vacation Church School) will explore three of Jesus’ parables: the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost sons. Using these three themes from Jesus’ teachings, we’ll think about our relationships with God and others, our place in the world, and how we can be better people. All ages are encouraged to put July 24-26 on your calendar now!


  4. Articles : April 2018 Collection

    Githens Middle School

    One of the highlights for 8th graders at Githens Middle School is a semi-formal dance each May. A large number of 8th grade students have financial limitations, though.

    Westminster’s dress, shirt, tie, and shoe drive will help ensure that lower-income students don’t have to stress about finding something to wear. Your donation of gently worn shirts and ties, dresses, shoes, and accessories will help 30-40 students get a free semi-formal outfit so they can be part of the fun and excitement of a Githens semi-formal.

    All sizes 12 and up (including adult sizes) are needed. Please bring donations to the green collection bin by the end of April.
