Westminster Presbyterian Church will open the doors on the inspiring expansion to our historic building on Sunday, January 14. Our 10:30 am worship will celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., with Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelsen, the Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the highest ecclesiastical office in our denomination, as our guest preacher.
Worship will be lively! Musicians from Liberty Church will join our Westminster Choir to lift our hearts in song as we remember and give thanks for the prophetic ministry of Dr. King. The Rev. Dr. Alika Galloway, Co-Pastor of Liberty, will offer the prayer, and we also will welcome Westminster’s other local congregational partner, Grace-Trinity Community Church, whose pastor, The Rev. Daniel Vigilante, and musicians will help lead worship. This is a true celebration of three Presbyterian congregations working together to build what Dr. King called “the Beloved Community.”
Following worship, we will process to our new underground parking area for “Grace in the Garage,” a time for coffee, fellowship, and singing in that space before we begin using it for parking on January 19. We then will process up one level for a wonderful musical inauguration of Westminster Hall. All of the church’s choirs will ring the room to celebrate the completion of the five-year Open Doors Open Futures project with a world premiere of a commissioned setting of Isaiah 43:19: “I am about to do a new thing. Now it springs forth. Do you not perceive it?”
