Worship this Sunday
10:00 am | September 27, 2020
Livestreaming from the Westminster Sanctuary
"Gifts in the Wilderness: Grace, in Spite of..."
Scripture: Exodus 17:1-7
Rev. Lynette Sparks
Music will be provided by Josh Leckrone, bass, Cara Hyink, soprano, and Helen Hofmeister, Minister of Music.
Westminster enjoys worshipping as a large family. To make that somewhat possible virtually, our Children's Ministry is coordinating its stories each Sunday with the focus of the worship service. Children, youth, and adults can discuss and wonder about the same scripture.
Videos will can also be found on our YouTube channel.
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.

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.
