    7:00 pm | Cookout | Courtyard
    Every Wednesday from May 27-July 29, we will feature different Westminster members offering their musical gifts to form an intergenerational house band. The thoughts and questions of our young people will guide our preaching and reflections.

    We’ll consider big questions for young and old alike, such as “Why do bad things happen to good people?” “Is God real" "Why should I be Christian or religious at all?” and “If we are created in the image of God, then why are we imperfect?” Come ready to ask, seek, and find— while celebrating the life we have together as a church family!
