Westminster in the Community


Westminster in the Community
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Westminster has long-standing history of getting involved in the Sacramento area. Learn more about the organizations and programs that we participate in.


Respite Center
Every Wednesday 9 am - 11 am

Westminster operates a Respite Center every Wednesday for homeless folks in the area to get off the streets for a while and spend time in our Courtyard and Patio room. There are hot beverages and cool water to drink, some nutritious snacks to eat, necessities (free) pop-up shop, and a charging station (two electrical power strips) so our guests can recharge their cell phones while resting. There’s also a restroom inside the Patio Room that they can use.


Loaves & Fishes
A longtime partnership to feed the homeless

Without passing judgment, and in a spirit of love and hospitality, Sacramento’s Loaves & Fishes feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless. Homeless men, women and children seeking survival services  are provided an oasis of welcome, safety, and cleanliness. A group from Westminster volunteers at Loaves & Fishes on the first Saturday each month. For more information contact the church office.


River City Foodbank

Westminster Presbyterian Church has supported the River City Food Bank with donations of food for many years. In addition to volunteer days throughout the year, we also collect food donations to be delivered to River City.

Habitat for Humanity – Build for Unity

“Build for Unity” is a monumental interfaith build program and effort by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento to bring people together of different backgrounds and faiths to put aside differences and build homes and unity in our community.

Opportunities come up throughout the year for Westminster friends to participate in this inspirational build.

Women’s Empowerment

Women’s Empowerment educates and empowers women who are homeless with the skills and confidence necessary to get a job, create a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children.
