This Sunday in Worship: Two Services

March 29, Two services at 8:30a and 11:00a - Palm-Passion Sunday: We have two very different services of worship this week. At 8.30 Rev. Chandler Stokes will be preaching on Mark 15:25-37 and the meaning of the last words of Jesus. Although the authorities tried to silence Jesus, his Word lives—unless of course we ignore it. Then, it again falls silent in our ears. 

At 11.00 the Sanctuary Choir and a string ensemble will be offering the Faure Requiem as our primary witness. This most peaceful of requiem masses gives voice to our deep longing that the dead rest eternally in the peace and grace of God’s presence. Sunday we offer our praise to our faithful God for fulfilling that promise.

Mission does, indeed, matter at Westminster.

We believe we were sent here to do what God has called us to do.  This is our mission as a church.  It is what matters most of all.  We believe that mission is what we do for people outside the walls of our sanctuary and that is at the core of our capital campaign, MissionMatters.  For more information:
