During this time when we are unable to gather together and the injustices in the world are laid bare, we stand firm in God’s faithfulness and are reminded of God’s abundant grace to us through Westminster.

LISTENING

We listen to voices long silenced or unheard, and to God, to bring about healing. This past year the Arts at Westminster invited our community to engage with music, dance, art, and spoken word, enabling us to listen in new ways.

Hold fast to love and justice, and wait continually for your God.  — Hosea 12:6

LEARNING

We learn from each other to bring about reconciliation. Through all-church book reads, the Families, Youth, and Children ministries, Adult Education, and Social Justice Forums, Westminster offers many ways to learn from others, both inside and outside the congregation.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by renewing your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God. — Romans 12:2

LOVING

We put faith into loving action to bring about change. Faith in Action ministries at Westminster continue to create affordable housing, stem hunger, and pursue justice while our youth put love into action during their mission trip this summer.

Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. — 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIVING

By participating in the life and ministry of the church we join God’s work in the world. In the process, we discover life’s highest purpose. Resources from the church’s ministries come from your pledges and gifts (73%), along with the Endowment (17%), Hospitality (7%) and other (3%). 

The chart on the right shows how your gifts are deployed to make a meaningful impact within ourselves and the Beloved Community.

During these uncertain times, we are grateful for God’s abundant love, amply demonstrated in the ministries of Westminster. The church is being revitalized and renewed in unexpected ways. Let us sustain this faithful work by giving our time, talents, and resources in whatever way we can, in gratitude for God’s abundant grace.

How Your Gifts Are Deployed

I’ve found at the root of my strongest doubts and largest questions, Westminster fosters faith, despite the differences in beliefs and questions. Because above all, love drives this church, and justice is love in public.
