It’s going to be an exciting and busy summer here at Westminster! Our sanctuary will be getting a fresh look as a new coat of paint will be applied on the ceiling and walls. While on the surface this may not seem to be an extensive undertaking, in fact we have soaring ceilings that require a lift, and with a lift there’s weight that requires shoring up the floor. It’s always something! But in fact, few good things come easily.
Following the congregation-wide meeting on May 20, it was decided there will be a sub committee to address ways to better embrace Westminster’s faith in the programs we offer.

If you’d like to offer any suggestions call the office at 916-442-8939 or attend a meeting on Wednesdays in July at 7 p.m.
