In November, the Session adopted a Welcome Statement to express that we are a church that seeks, in the name of Christ, to welcome all people:
Westminster Presbyterian Church welcomes all to participate fully in the life of the church. Jesus, in his life and teachings, acknowledged all persons as wonderfully made children of God, each equally worthy of God’s unconditional love.
So, striving to follow Jesus, we welcome everyone, with affirmation and celebration, praying God will draw us into deeper relationship with each other and with Christ as we worship and serve together.
If you have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in the church or in society, know that you are welcome here.
At Westminster, ordination of church officers and member weddings are celebrated as acts of the Holy Spirit at work in the church regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.
Learn how the Welcome Statement was developed and how we can live into the values we proclaim together with the resources below. Let us know if you’d like to be involved with continuing efforts to truly be a welcoming church.
