  • A Meal and Worship Service

    A meal and worship experience for Maundy Thursday

    Westminster continues the tradition of a family- and child-friendly meal and worship experience on Maundy Thursday evening. As Christ did with his disciples, we will gather for a supper, serving and loving one another as we share Christ’s peace.

    The meal will be framed by the elements of worship—hymns and stories—in a candlelit Great Hall. As we share food and fellowship, we will hear and encounter the story of the Last Supper. Westminster youth will assist in leading worship.

    Join us Thursday, April 2, at 5:45 pm. Price is $7 per person/$20 maximum for families. Seating filled quickly last year, so RSVP early to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    • gather as an open community to worship God with dignity and joy, warmth and beauty;
    • nourish personal faith through study, prayer, and fellowship;
    • work for love, peace and justice;
    • be a welcoming and caring Christian community, witnessing to God’s love day by day;
