The Session of Westminster has decided that our church will only offer livestreamed worship services at 10:30 am and 5 pm Sunday until further notice. In addition, we will livestream Wednesday Lenten worship at noon and 6 pm. The congregation will gather virtually at these times, not in person.
The Session’s decision reflects the desire of Westminster’s leaders to join the broader community in efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. To that end, all other activities at Westminster on Sundays and Wednesdays will also be suspended.
We encourage you to join the online congregation at those times on Sunday to praise God and pray for guidance and healing through these challenging days. We will continue to be the church; we will simply have to do that differently for a while.
The Session encourages all committees and small groups, including Lenten Covenant Groups, to meet virtually, using available technology. Please contact Meghan Gage-Finn if you need assistance.
Our staff team, pastors, and lay leaders are working on plans to extend Westminster’s ministry in creative ways through these days – in education, pastoral care, and service. Please check the website for updated information.
If you have a particular need to contact a pastor please email David Shinn. If you have any questions about the above information, please email either Meghan Gage-Finn or Tim Hart-Andersen.
Let us hold in prayer the entire human family, especially those who are ill, those working to care for individuals who are sick, and those working to develop tests and a vaccine for Covid-19.
We will trust in the providence of God to see us all through this time, and not give in to fear.
