  2. News : Make a Joyful Noise in the New Year!

    January is a great time of year to join our Chancel Choir (or, for that matter, our Junior Choir)! Except for the cold weather, January is just like September – the start of a whole new season in choir. Now that Christmas is over, we begin the new year with a clean slate, and we’ll soon be preparing music for one of the most spiritually meaningful times of year, Lent and Easter. We will also be starting work on our delightful May 6 choral program (American Treasures, Pt. II).

    Don’t miss this opportunity to get involved in Westminster’s choral programs! You’ll be glad you did. You are welcome to try us out – with no obligation to join – by coming to any of our rehearsals. Chancel Choir meets Thursday evenings, 7:30 p.m.; Junior Choir meets Wednesdays, 5:15 p.m. In addition to its obvious musical focus, choir gives new meaning to the word "fellowship."

    Give us a whirl! Questions? Need more info? Contact Monica Rossman.


  3. News : “Yagi Magi” Party!

    The next Yaggie fellowship gathering will be a "Yagi Magi" Party on Thursday, January 12, at 7pm at George and Rebecca Edwards’ home. Bring a potluck dish to share and a fun gift (under $10) in a "white elephant" gift exchange. Mark your calendars or an evening of fellowship as we celebrate the Magi’s visit to Jesus after his birth! Email Katherine Hester at with questions.


  4. News : Storytelling Sessions

    Over this fall and winter, Westminster has spent some intentional time taking stock of where we are, and where we might be headed. During this time, a talented team has gone around to groups throughout the church asking for stories. We will use these stories to tell us about our core values as a church. The session will then use the values identified to think, pray, and plan for what is next. There are still opportunities to share a story that illustrates what you love about Westminster. Two Storytelling Sessions will be held this month on January 15, at 10am in the Parlor, and on January 22, at 12:15pm in Room 105. If you are unabl e to attend either, visit bit.ly/wpc-storytelling to share your story.


  5. News : Young Adult & Senior High Bible Study

    A Monday night Young Adult & Senior High Bible Study will begin January 23. It will meet from 5:30-6:30pm in Taylor’s office to study the book of Esther on January 23, January 30, February 6, and February 13. In March, we will celebrate Purim, a Jewish holiday during which the book of Esther is reenacted, together with our Jewish neighbors. This study will be a great opportunity to learn and fellowship with one another, so clear your Monday evenings and join us!

    Update:
    We will celebrate Purim on March 7 at the Judea Reform Congregation. Meet at Westminster at 6:30pm.
