This Sunday: Two Services at 8:30a & 11:00a

This Sunday: Two Services at 8:30a & 11:00a

This week we have the story of Moses’ seeking to see God’s face, while God resists and stays elusive. What’s the point? What is God trying to say to us, trying to do for us by remaining elusive? Simply put, one answer is this: God needs to be God… So that we can become the persons God intends us to be. Please join us as we seek to be open to God while letting God be God. It’s a thrilling place to be.

Minister for Faith Formation Team

Minister for Faith Formation Team

Rev. Jen Porter, Associate Pastor for Faith Formation and Pastoral Care 

“I care about what God is doing in the life of every soul. I care about spiritual practices that can help us listen and can open us to the very presence of God. I want to help people listen to their souls and learn to speak about their faith, to grow in comfort and confidence and to do so with community.” 

Kyle Nolan, Minister for Faith Formation and Mission 

“In the past year, I have experienced first-hand the hunger in the congregation for thick, contextualized, theological engagement. Also the need for a shared vocabulary that would speak to the sacredness of each individual and family’s calling as part of the larger community of faith.”

Mental Health Referral Panel

Mental Health Referral Panel

This booklet is intended to be an extension to our pastoral care at Westminster. We intend this list of professionals to be a means by which we can extend the safety of Westminster’s heart beyond the bounds of the congregation. The practitioners listed in the panel were discovered and vetted through a faithful committee’s suggestions and a subsequent interview process with them and the Pastoral Care Team.

Linking Lives

Each week, we share a new opportunity for you to consider linking your life with someone in a meaningful way. West Michigan Environmental Council (WMEAC) is teaming up with ArtPrize to bring zero-waste to downtown Grand Rapids! They are looking for volunteers to staff their 3 S.O.R.T. stations and ensure visitors understand and use the S.O.R.T. process for discarding their waste. Volunteer shifts are from 11:30-2:00, 2:00-5:00, and 5:00-8:00 now through October 8th. Interested? Contact Heather at (616)717-5536 or heatherc@wpcgr.org.
