Needed…Pray Ground Team Members!

We are looking to build a small team of people who can…

  • Rotate weekly to refresh & reorganize the items in the worship carts (can be done almost any time the church is open).
  • Meet (in person or Zoom) periodically as a team to brainstorm new ways to engage young people in the worship service by incorporating new items to rotate into the worship carts.

If you can be part of this team, please contact Jill Reichert, Director of Children & Family Ministries.

Three days to collect 1,000 socks for Sock it to Us!

Thank you to everyone who has donated socks for our annual Sock it to Us Drive already this month. Can you help us keep people's feet warm this year? We're trying to gather 2,000 socks this year and have collected 1,000 so far which leaves only three days left to accomplish our goal! We will distribute donations of NEW socks (sizes from infants to adults of any size and style) to Tick Tock Early Learning Center, St. Agnes Day Room, CYWA Gateway Shelter, Chester County Migrant Ministries, Atkinson Men’s Shelter, City Gates Men’s Shelter, and Broad Street Ministries. Please bring your sock donations to the bins located in Café 10 West. You can also order online, and have them shipped directly to the church, care of Ann Hatfield.

Adult Volunteers Needed for Children & Youth Programs

We are in need of adults who will serve with and for children and youth ministry at Westminster. Clearances are required, but we can help you obtain them. Questions or interested? Contact our Director of Youth & College Ministry Chris Clark, or Director of Children & Families Jill Reichert.

  • Youth Group (5:30-6:30 pm Sundays – dinner included): Seeking 2 adults to serve in a ministry of presence and friendship with the youth who attend Youth Group. This includes building relational connections with youth and helping lead activities, conversations, or games on Sunday nights. Consistent weekly presence is desirable, but not mandatory in this role.
  • Faith Lab - Make, Move, & Meditate (Oct. 22, 29, Nov. 5, 12, 19 & 26 during 11 am worship): Seeking 2-3 adults who will help lead either middle school or high school groups explore spiritual practices with teens. No “prayer experts” required – simply a willingness to help teens try practices that can help them connect with themselves, their neighbor, all creation, and God.
  • Middles KidsConnect Class (During 9:30 am worship): Our 2nd & 3rd grade KidsConnect class is in need of additional help on the teacher/helper rotation. No prep work ahead of time - just volunteer once every 4-6 weeks.
