The Spirit gathers us in for a sacred time of worship and thanksgiving — a celebration on our journey with God and each other. Westminster's 2016-2017 theme is Growing Up, In and Out. Growing "up" has to do with maturing in our spiritual walk with God. Growing "in" is our about our relationship within the community of faith as followers of Christ's Way. Growing "out" is about our relationships with all others. No "missionary position" here. We're about mutuality and walking alongside others.
In a Sunday service you'll experience heartfelt music, uplifting and challenging preaching, multicultural expression and authentic caring. The Sunday celebration is the foundation of every week and the wellspring of life and mission. Our congregation is diverse in race, economic and educational background, sexual orientation and more. No one group makes up more than 60% of the total.
Kids’ Church —During the morning service, young children, ages 3 -- 10ish, are invited to join the teachers to enjoy a brief age-appropriate lesson that emphasizes God’s welcome and love. A staff-person is also ready to assist parents with toddlers or infants. A live video feed to the service upstairs is provided. Don’t let your child miss this exciting opportunity! Note — To ensure safety of children, we use teams of two teachers with at least one with FBI clearance.
Music and Worship Arts-- Westminster has a strong network of musicians and artists, within and beyond the congregation, who help us worship in ways that reflect our global world and diverse membership. There are opportunities for vocal soloists, choral ensembles, dancers, instrumentalists, Jazz, Blues, bluegrass, folk, and more. Let us know how you would like to share your musical and artistic gifts to praise God and build the faith community.
Preaching — The Westminster pulpit is known for its grounding in God’s word and amazing welcome, its love of Christ, its commitment to peace and justice, and its relevance to our lives today. Whether Rev. Ruth, Rev. Brian or ministerial intern Bob Clegg or other guest preacher, the sermon always works to shape our faith and action.
