The Lenten season is 40 days of mindfulness. Westminster is offering a Lenten Challenge to friends and members, via weekly topics that will challenge us to grow individually and as a congregation. For the third week of Lent, March 19-25, we are challenged to become engaged in our civic life: contact an elected official, participate in a rally, take public transit. Through these mindful practices, and sharing of our experiences, we will all enjoy a more meaningful Lenten season. Please share your thoughts and experiences about participating in this challenge by filling in the form below.
Westminster has many events, programs and classes to make Lent more meaningful for our friends and members. Take a peek at some of our offerings and please, feel free to join us for any or all of them.
The Lenten Challenge is an individual action, but done in a community setting. Support and sharing are as much a part of the experience as the action itself. We’ve received various comments highlighting the successes and struggles of last week’s challenge to abstain from meat. They include:
It wasn’t as difficult as we thought.
Now I have new recipes to use weekly.
The grocery bill was definitely cheaper.
I found I could be satisfied and not hungry by going without meat in my diet.
Mark your calendar and get ready to enjoy lunch and a show at Westminster on March 26. This year’s talent show is filled with long-time favorites, including singing and dancing as well as some new acts that will thrill the audience. The lunch will include penne pasta (gluten- and meat-free options available) salad and dessert.
Westminster youth hope to raise both funds and awareness about world hunger when they partake in the 30-Hour Famine project on March 31- April 1. Worldwide, children die every day, many due to causes related to mal-nourishment and hunger. The 30-hour famine, an established program sponsored by World Vision, includes our youth learning about nutrition, food and working a service activity as well as gathering together to share this experience. They will spend the night at the church, and in the morning leave for the community project.
How can we bring more love, grace and gratitude into our homes? Parents of children who are college age and younger are invited to participate in an interactive Lenten series on Parenting with Grace & Gratitude, starting March 5.
Participants will explore, through discussion and art, how to re-envision parenting as a reflection of our relationship with God. Content will include scripture and writings by social scientist Dr. Brene Brown and gratitude author and Westminster guest preacher, Dr. Robert Emmons,
Westminster is pleased to offer a class on the Essentials of Christian Practice during the Lenten season.
The six-week program will focus on specific topics and people are invited to attend one or all the sessions. The class should be extremely beneficial for people who are interested in joining Westminster, or becoming more active in our church community. The classes will be held at 10 a.m. in the Club Room and will last about 45 minutes. Child care is available, and the youth worship arts class will also be offered at the same time.
