Welcome

Welcome to Westminster

 

 

At Westminster Presbyterian Church, all we do is done to bear witness to God's love for the world in Jesus Christ. In short, we celebrate the Gospel: As a congregation, we worship the Triune God, study his Word, care for his flock, and engage in his mission locally and globally. 

 

Westminster is an exciting place to be, with people who are being transformed daily by grace alone and who seek to follow after Jesus Christ in all parts of their lives. Come, be a part.

Sermon Series

"The Beatitudes:" Jesus's Words of Blessing

October 20-December 15.

One of the most remarkable aspects of our God is that before he commands us to action, he speaks words of blessing to us.  Jesus opens his Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7) with nine such blessings to people who desperately need a word of encouragement and strength.  Throughout the fall, and into Advent, Westminster will explore these blessings Jesus gives before he gently continues to call a spiritually-thirsty people toward a new way of life.

Small Group Studies

Sundays at 9 a.m. Adult Education Class led by Pete Bloss.

 

"The Grand Sweep": 365 Days from Genesis through Revelation guides adults to read through the Bible in a year, reading three to four chapters daily. The Psalms and Proverbs are scattered throughout the reading as devotional elements. Because the plan moves through the Bible in biblical sequence, readers grasp the grand sweep of the Scriptures--something missed in most Bible studies that take up only a certain book or section of the Bible. Also, daily readings are manageable; someone who is just beginning a serious devotional life need not feel threatened or inadequate. By the time readers finish their year of reading, they will have a grasp of the biblical story from beginning to end. And with it, because of the daily discipline, a stronger devotional life. Kalas also provides a faithful daily summary of each day's reading, but with a devotional quality to encourage warmth of spirit as well as knowledge of mind. 

Sundays at 9 a.m. Adult Coffee Class led by Pastor Will.

 

Presbyterian 101: Who are we as Presbyterian Christians, and how did we get here?  We are the product of a rich history filled with searches for biblical faithfulness and a colorful cast of characters.  In this new class that began on August 18, participants are exploring the history of Western Christianity from the day of Pentecost to the formation of the present-day Evangelical Presbyterian Church, stopping to look at how our beliefs came to be and why they matter. 

Westminster on Wednesdays: 5:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall led by Pastor Will.

Come for a simple supper at 5:30 p.m., and stay for a new 6 p.m. study beginning September 18.  Prayer, like the beginnings of human speech, is a learned behavior, and oftentimes even the most faithful Christians will find themselves at a loss for how to pray.  Each week, using Gary Neal Hansen’s book, “Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History’s Best Teachers,” participants in this class will explore a type and form of prayer practiced by a great figure from Christian history, and then personally test it out—and if it works, it can become part of our personal treasury for communicating with God.
