Transition Period

Transition Period

The pastor nominating committee, or PNC, is discerning who to call as our next senior pastor and head of staff. They reflect on the strengths of Westminster: who we are, ways we are strong and healthy, and ways we can continue to move forward; this process takes 18-24 months on average. During the transition, in addition to our own preachers, we are hosting guest preachers invited by a taskforce and welcomed by our worship committee.

Upon the advice and approval of the Presbytery Committee on Ministry, Westminster is taking a more non-traditional approach to our period of transition. The senior pastor and head of staff is primarily responsible for three areas: 1) session, 2) staff, and 3) worship. During the transition, Rev. Jen Porter, Associate Pastor for Faith Formation and Pastoral Care, is serving as interim moderator of session; Rev. David Baak, Executive Pastor, is serving as interim head of staff. The personnel committee and a special taskforce is inviting guest preachers to fill one or multiple weeks to lead us in worship and preach. For more details, visit westminstergr.org/transition.

Coming This Fall: Exploring the Enneagram

Coming This Fall: Exploring the Enneagram


Our community is exploring the promise and possibility of the Enneagram as a tool for spiritual growth. Westminster began this journey at last year’s leadership retreat. Now, we are inviting the entire congregation to gather for conversations and study in small groups and on Sunday mornings between services. On November 17, Westminster will host a one-day public workshop led by Chris Heuertz, author of The Sacred Enneagram: Finding Your Unique Path to Spiritual Growth. Find out more about the workshop and register here.

Click here for the small group signups. You may do so until Sunday, October 14th when online registration closes for groups to be formed.

Linking Lives

Linking Lives

Use your medical experience to provide compassionate, accessible health care for individuals at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Index. As a volunteer nurse with Exalta Health, you’ll work two shifts/month to prepare patients for their appointments by recording their history, taking their vitals, and making them feel comfortable. Proof of related degree or certification required, such as RN, CNA, NP, EMT, PA, etc. Speaking Spanish is not necessary, but would be a great asset!
