All Westminster youth and their friends are invited to participate in the World Vision 30-hour Famine to be held at Westminster Friday, Apr. 27 – Saturday, Apr. 28. This event is designed to raise funds for—and awareness about—world hunger. The fast will start after lunch on Friday and that night the participants will gather at Westminster to learn about poverty and hunger, and then sleep outside in the courtyard in makeshift cardboard huts (weather permitting). There will also be plenty of activities to keep participants busy throughout the night.
Lunch, a live show, and supporting a great cause all at once? Count me in for the annual Youth Talent Show and Luncheon on Sunday, Apr. 22! Everyone has a talent, and this is your chance to show it off. All ages can participate!
The Rev. Dr. Mary E. Westfall has been part of the PCUSA nearly her entire life. Daughter of a Presbyterian minister, Mary attended San Francisco Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1988. She refers to her first call to a congregation in New York City as a “crash course” in ministry due to the dynamism and intensity of the setting. Another decade was spent as a university chaplain, directing an ecumenical ministry, teaching in the philosophy department and finishing her doctorate.
