Sacramento Police Chief to speak at Jan. 21 services

Westminster is excited to welcome Sacramento Police Department Chief Daniel Hahn as our guest speaker on Sunday, Jan. 21.

He will speak at both services, as well as our 10 a.m. adult education class, on the challenges that Sacramento faces when it comes to racism and crime, his vision for enhancing community health and peace, and the role that people of faith communities (like Westminster) can play in creating a more just and equitable city.
