Help Us Print Less Paper

Westminster is an Earth Care Congregation, and our Care of Creation Team helps us look for ways to use less of the earth's resources in our life together. We print a LOT of worship bulletins every week, and many of these pieces of paper go in recycling after one use (or no use!)

In an effort to use fewer trees, ink, and energy each week, we want to hear from you! If you or your household are willing to receive most of your information about worship order via screens or email only, please submit this form to reduce our printing count by one or more. Thank you! 

Looking for more ways to care for creation? Try the 30 Days for our Planet challenge. Click here to view the challenge with links to resources.

Meet the Woodworker, Dr. Bob Sumner!

Did you know that our great Sanctuary cross was made by a member of Westminster? This work of art and devotion, as well as other pieces around the church building, were made by longtime member Bob Sumner. Find Bob and Pauline Sumner in Spellman for a special time of "Meet the Woodworker" between services this Sunday, April 14. Enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation with Bob, who so generously shares his love of woodworking and the Great Carpenter Jesus Christ.

Dads, Grandpas & Uncles: We Need Your Help!

We are in desperate need of help in our nursery on Mother's Day. We encourage Westminster men to step up and volunteer for a two hour shift in the nursery on Sunday, May 11. Help young moms celebrate Mother's Day and give them a few hours to worship without having to watch their children. For more information or to signup, contact Mary Maina. 

Earth Care Challenge

In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, our Care of Creation team challenges you to complete the 30 Days for our Planet challenge. Each day of this challenge asks you to do one thing to reduce, reuse, rethink or educate yourself on being a good steward of God's creation. Click here to view and download the challenge.
