Bring your ornaments

As part of our Advent celebration, we invite you to share an ornament from your family tree. If you’re willing to share an ornament and its story, put it on the Christmas tree in the sanctuary and bring the story to Chandler. (Please be sure the ornament is labeled with your name and isn’t too fragile or valuable.)

Thursday: WPA luncheon

You are invited to the Westminster Presbyterian Adults’ Christmas luncheon this Thursday, December 12, at Porter Hills in the Meeting House—11:30a punch bowl and 12:00p luncheon. The EGRHS Madrigals, led by Dr. James Borst, will entertain us with accapella Christmas songs. For reservations, please contact Jan Dildine at or 616-866-9281.
