Mission is what we call the extension of Westminster’s ministry beyond the bounds of our congregation. It’s one of the defining parts of our work as a church.
In December 2012, Session approved a new Emphasis on Mission, a three-year assessment of where our next call to mission should focus. It has three parts:
- Increasing participation
- Strengthening core missions
- Reimagining mission budgets
Mission at Westminster has two sides: Community, and Worldwide. In both of these, there are abundant opportunities to get involved and make a difference:
- In our community, we’re talking about partnering with people outside our congregation and revitalizing our community through participation in local ministries.
- In the world, we want to be involved through partnerships, whether it’s a day in Benton Harbor or a week in Cuba.
