  1. News : Haiti Culture Experience & Book Drive

    Intergenerational Advent Serving & Learning
    December 16, 9:45-10:45am
    Haiti Culture Experience & Book Drive

    Drop by the Parlor to sample Haitian coffee and Haitian Ginger Cake (Bonbon Siwo) and donate a book. The Haiti Education Mission Team will be collecting children’s books in French and Haitian Creole to take to the classrooms this spring. Research shows that each classroom should have 20 books per student. The classrooms had no books last year, so the team took a small collection and hopes to bring even more books on their Spring 2019 trip. See the list of recommended books at

  2. News : Caroling for All Ages on December 19

    Take part in the Westminster tradition of Christmas caroling at the homes of some of our beloved members. Meet in the WPC parking lot on Wednesday, December 19, at 6:15pm, and we’ll caravan through our route. We’ll return to the church afterward for warm drinks and snacks in the Parlor. All are welcome!


  3. News : 2017 Christmas Eve Offering

    At Westminster, we have a tradition of giving generously to the Christmas Eve offering. The offering will be split between CASA and Urban Ministries of Durham. CASA will use your donations to renovate affordable apartments in Durham for seniors, veterans, people living with disabilities, and working families earning a low wage. UMD will use your donations to build storage lockers for clients at the homeless shelter to keep their belongings in during their stay.

    The offering will be collected at the Christmas Pageant and both Christmas Eve services. You can give any time before Christmas in these ways:

    • Drop a check off to the church office
    • Give online via myWPC
    • Text “WPCDURHAM $50.00” to 73256 (adjust donation amount as needed; standard text messaging rates may apply)

    Open your heart and give generously as you come into Christ’s presence this Christmas.
