  1. News & Articles : 2018 Youth Mission Fundraiser

    Youth Mission Soup-er Fundraiser & Dessert Auction
    Sunday, February 4, at 12-1:30pm
    Fellowship Hall

    Come to the Fellowship Hall after worship on Sunday, February 4, for the Youth Mission Soup-er Fundraiser & Dessert Auction. We’ll be serving soup and grilled cheese for $5/person and $20/family, hosting a dessert auction, and accepting donations for the Youth Fund.

    Our goal is to raise $4,000. These funds will support youth mission projects like our recent Christmas mission night and the August 2018 Youth Mission Stay; our summer trips; and other events throughout the year. As in 2016, the youth will visit several of our nonprofit partners in Durham during the Youth Mission Stay, working alongside one another and learning how to live lives of service.

    You can give to the Youth Fund any time by:

    • Making a donation online
    • Texting “WPCDURHAM $50.00” to 73256 (adjust donation amount as needed)
    • Placing a check (memo line: Youth Fund) in the lockbox beside Taylor’s office

    We hope you’ll join us for this soup-er fun event and learn how you can support our youth and our city!

  5. News & Articles : Make a Joyful Noise in 2018!

    January is a great time of year to join Westminster’s Chancel Choir. Except for the colder weather, January is just like September – the start of a whole new choir season.

    Now that Christmas is over, we begin the new year with a clean slate, and we’ll soon be preparing music for two of the most spiritually meaningful seasons of the church year: Lent and Easter. We will also begin work on our spring choral program, to be presented the evening of Sunday, May 6. This year’s theme – Love, Joy, and Peace – will serve as a framework for some wonderful and inspiring singing.
