Here are some common questions about worship and life at Westminster. Don’t hesitate to contact the church office if you have a question not listed here.
What’s the difference between worship at 8:30am and 11am?
Worship at 8:30am is a little more low-key. The atmosphere is calm and meditative for early-risers. At 11am, the Chancel Choir brings a joyful noise to worship, and the pews are filled with a vibrant energy from people of all ages. The services are about the same length. The Chancel Choir sings at the 11am service only, and special music is scheduled for the 8:30am service about once a month. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we all join together for worship at 10am.
What do I wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. Some folks will be in their Sunday best, others will be wearing casual clothes.
What’s available for my kids?
There’s something for every age and stage at Westminster, especially for children and youth. On Sunday mornings, we have childcare for infants and toddlers, Church School for all ages, and Godly Play during worship. Westminster also has a very active and dynamic Youth Group.
What about accessibility and other assistance?
To the right of the Sanctuary doors, you’ll find a ramp for walkers, wheelchairs, and anyone wary of steps. The back row of pews are handicap accessible, and large-print versions of the hymnal and Bible as well as assistive listening devices are available in the Narthex. Just ask an usher if you need any of these items.
Is everyone welcome at Westminster?
Yes! Regardless of your age, race, sexuality, gender identity, ability, or religion, you are welcome here. We rejoice in the diversity of God’s creation! Read WPC’s Welcome Statement.
How do I get connected here?
The best way to start is by building relationships with folks. Contact any staff member, and they’ll help you connect with a Bible study, Church School class, choir, ministry, lunch group, supper club, worship volunteer team, or Inquirers’ Class – whichever group feels like the best fit.
