WORSHIP AT WESTMINSTER

Sunday Mornings at 9:30

Worship is at the heart of our life together as the community  of faith.

Worship is about renewal.  

... It's also about making connections between our faith in Jesus Christ and llife's challenges.  

Worship is about seeking the presence of God 

....it's also time together as a community of faith.    

Worship is for learning ... and above all for giving joyful praise to God.

At Westminster, we plan our worship service to have a balance between tradition and freshness. 
 

Through scripture, music, preaching, prayer, and the visual arts,

worshipers of all ages are challenged, encouraged, and involved.

OUR WORSHIP STYLE is varied, because we understand that there are many ways to worship God!   
Sometimes we use mostly traditional protestant hymns and liturgy; other weeks we use mostly more contemporary music and an informal order of worship;  Most often  the service is a blend traditional and contemporary elements.  Always we are about praising God!

From time to time, a theme, a special day in the Christian calendar, special guests, an old-fashioned hymn-sing or the quietly meditative mood of Taize music will shape our order of worship.   Usually information about upcoming services may be found on our home page.

Special services during the year include Blessing of the Animals in September, Longest Night Service in December, Christmas Eve and Holy Week services.

CHILDREN of all ages are welcome in worship!

 

but if desired, NURSERY CARE is available for infants and toddlers during services and Adult Education classes each Sunday.

 

CHILDREN AND WORSHIP   
Their own worship experience for children ages 4 through 4th grade, held three Sundays each month, introduces young people to the language and stories of faith.    

Children sit with their families in the sanctuary for the first part of the service, then are dismissed to go with a leader to the nearby Children and Worship room. Parents are welcome to accompany them.

The Children & Worship program is offered

September through mid-May.

Music and Visual Arts
