COVID-19 Response

Westminster Presbyterian Church continues to offer new ways to gather and foster community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although we must remain apart, we covenant still to be the church. We must remember, we are not alone. Thanks be to God!

The Westminster building remains closed until further notice, but the community continues to do ministry and mission:

At this time our building remains closed to external audiences as well, such as for space rentals. We look forward to serving our external community again when our building re-opens.

If you have a particular need to contact a pastor, please email David Tsai Shinn. If you have any questions about Westminster’s response to COVID-19, 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 trust in God to guide us in continuing to Build Beloved Community together during this time.

Re-opening the Building Plan

Westminster awaits the day when we can gather together in our historic downtown Minneapolis building again. But we recognize the need to put safety first.

The Session of Westminster appointed a task force to draft a Re-opening the Building Plan. The plan addresses phasing for re-opening the building, includes a risk analysis tool for specific church activities, and lists protocols to follow to ensure all of God’s children, especially the vulnerable, are protected and served, loved and affirmed.
