This Sunday in Worship: Remembrance

  Worship remembrance all saints day saints
Monday, October 28, 2013

This Sunday we celebrate All Saints Day.

Our faith is a song—we learn it from others, add our own voices to it for a time, and teach it to others so they can sing it after us. The basis of that song of faith is a call to remember not only the saints themselves, but the basis of the faith that empowered them: Christ has defeated death.

Friends, join us at 8:30a and 11:00a as we celebrate communion, hear songs from the choirs, and remember the saints who have come before us.

Stewarding the Church

Rev. Chandler Stokes

Sunday, October 20, 2013

“Whoever loves their dreams of the Christian community more than the community itself becomes its destroyer,” said Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There is a tension between what we long for the church to be, and what it actually is. But the heart of the Gospel is found with accepting those whom Christ has called—including new ones. We consider how to love an imperfect institution, and what discipline, hope, and love it takes to do so. A sermon on Isaiah 55:1-5.

Our focus this month is on stewardship. Why do we give? Quan and Gaëtan Gerville-Réache said it well in this video from Sunday.

Sermon: “Whoever loves their dreams of the Christian community more than the community itself becomes its destroyer,” said Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There is a tension between what we long for the church to be, and what it actually is. But the heart of the Gospel is found with accepting those whom Christ has called—including new ones. We’ll consider how to love an imperfect institution, and what discipline, hope, and love it takes to do so.

The new Chimes

  Chimes Youth Choir
Sunday, September 1, 2013

We’re excited to share with you something we’ve been working on this summer: A brand new Chimes.

The new Chimes is a magazine-like design that is more visual, colorful, and illustrative of Westminster’s ministries. In this new format, we hope to better tell the story of our church, its members, and its ministries.

For this debut issue of the new format, we’re focusing on Westminster’s ministry with young people. You’ll find full articles on Sunday education, a new experiment with youth choirs, WCDC, Camp Henry, and the youth ministry, plus news and information from across the congregation.
