The Contemporary Worship service at 8:45am on Sunday is
definitely the more relaxed of the two Sunday morning services.
Along with prayer, readings from scripture, and a sermon, you’ll
hear the sound of guitars, keyboard, violin, mandolin, flute and
the praise band singers.
To our parents: Children are always welcome in worship! Infants
and toddlers are lovingly cared for in the Nursery Room
throughout the worship service, should you wish to take advantage
of this care. Childcare is also available for children up to and
including age five in the Preschool Room throughout the service.
In four-part harmony, the Westminster Chancel Choir leads the
congregation in singing hymns and spiritual songs illuminating
the focus of each 11:00am worship service. The choir sings a wide
variety of traditional and modern works from Johannes Brahms and
John Rutter to African-American Spirituals and Folk Songs.
On April 26th & 27th, Westminster’s young people along with
Carmichael Presbyterian’s youth, participated in the
30-Hour Famine. It was an opportunity for the youth to grow
closer to Christ and each other while helping to save the lives
of hungry children. They set a goal, got sponsors, collected
donations and fasted for 30 hours with friends (having fun doing
it-no joke!). The church’s goal was to send $720 to World Vision
to help feed and care for 2 children for an entire year.
Large print bulletins and hymnals are available from the ushers,
and assistive listening devices are available in the church
Located at 13th and N Streets, Westminster is a downtown ministry
that is blessed with its own parking lot. The spaces fill up
quickly, so we also recommend the street parking on N Street,
13th Street, O Street, and 14th Street.
Every Monday, Pastor Wes leads noontime prayers from 12:15pm to
12:45pm in our chapel. The focus is on quiet, contemplative
prayers such as a centering prayer (meditation), lectio divina
(meditational hearing of scripture), chanting and anointing with
oil, and prayers for healing. This time provides a restful,
sacred space in the middle of the day for those who work downtown
and who wish to start the week off in a prayerful manner.
