Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

We stand with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in deploring the continued violence and oppression inflicted on our brothers and sisters in the United States. For centuries, those of us with power have ignored the structural racism and white supremacy woven into our institutions as well as our complicity in creating, maintaining, and accepting the privileges afforded by these systems. In following the lead of communities of color in insisting that Black Lives Matter, we at Westminster affirm that all are created in the image of God, and we commit to working toward reconciliation and justice born from Christ’s resurrection. We must be willing to have difficult conversations with others, and with ourselves. We must repent. We must speak up. And we must act.

Our Way Forward

Our Way Forward

The Westminster Session has authorized a "Way Forward Committee" to make recommendations as we discern our way forward in these COVID-19 days. The health and safety of all Westminster members and friends is our utmost concern. This committee meets bi-weekly and continues to consider recommendations from our Presbytery, the Centers for Disease Control, and state and local leaders. An email communication is sent to the congregation every other week with updates. You can access the latest email communication here.

Even before this COVID-19 pandemic struck, Kathy Cisler had been working on expanding ways for people to make donations digitally. We recognize that many are facing new and unforeseen financial implications in the wake of this pandemic and this message is not meant to put any pressure on people. However, we are also aware that many are able to continue, or increase, their offerings to help us pay our bills, our staff, and continue our ministry that brings justice, peace, and hope into a world God loves. Please click here for a document that provides information on new ways you can give digitally to the church. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kathy through her phone number at the church, (616) 717-5533. She is checking in at the church building daily and will gladly return your call and answer your questions.
