This Week at Westminster

The Week of February 19 – 25, 2018



A tremendous thank you to everyone for the quick work Sunday evening in removing the chairs so that we could have the carpet cleaned and tile re-waxed. One might think we had moved chairs before. That said the job is only half done. We will be restoring the chairs to the sanctuary Saturday morning beginning at 8:00 am. Though our deacon’s are leading the effort they are significantly outnumbered by the chairs. They do much on our behalf so come out and assist them Saturday morning and make their labors less.

The next “Who-Said-Men-Can’t-Be-Social” gathering will be THIS Thursday, February 22, 6:30 pm, at the home of Ron Klein, 109 Knollcrest Drive, Madison.  Be sure to put this on the calendar now!

Search Committee: The Search Committee is receiving and evaluating the submissions received to date for our Sr. Pastor position. Please continue to pray for the committee as they begin to narrow down the choices.

Upcoming Events

The ’40 Days for Life’ city-wide prayer campaign to end abortion is going on February 14 through March 5.  Show your love & join in the prayer to end abortion!  During the 40 Days, pray at home and if possible, come out to the sidewalk in front of the clinic for peaceful, prayerful presence.

2018 Missions Conference

The 2018 Missions Conference, “The Three Are One: God’s Mission, Our Mission, and My Mission,” will be March 2-4: Our keynote speaker this year will be the Dr. J. Alan Carter, retired pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL.  We will also be hearing reports from several of the missionaries and ministries we support as a congregation and responding to God’s call to missions by making our Faith Promise commitments for the coming year.  Don’t miss any of the exciting sessions:

  • Friday Night: We’ll have an “Indoor Picnic” in the Church Lobby at 6 pm, followed by session 1 in the sanctuary at 7 pm.
  • Saturday Morning: Join us for a continental breakfast at 9:30 am in the Church Lobby, followed by a “missionary report round-up” at 10 am in the Sanctuary.
  • All-day Sunday: We’ll hear from Pastor Carter in both morning and evening worship services and enjoy plus a second round of missionary reports during the Sunday School hour.

Westminster is delighted to provide child care for all sessions of the conference, but we do need for you to sign up so that we can staff appropriately. We are also providing a boxed meal for the Friday evening session and a light breakfast for the Saturday morning session. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we can purchase meals so that everyone is accommodated. There is no cost associated with the meals or childcare.

Conference Volunteers:  Volunteers still needed to assist the Missions Committee in the Nursery during the Friday night and Saturday morning sessions.  We still need your helping hands in the nursery and with children’s activities. WPC Youth – take advantage of this opportunity to raise funds for your Palmer Home Trip!Use the Blue Sheet to sign-up on Sunday.

What is Faith Promise?  Simply this:  it is my commitment to trust God to provide additional financial resources above and beyond our regular giving through which we will support the work of missions both at home and abroad. Pray about the amount that you believe the Lord would have you trust Him for this year and complete your Faith Promise Commitment Card this Sunday.  To date, we have received Faith Promise commitments from 11 (out of 146) households, bringing the total committed so far to $16,900.00.  It will require a Faith Promise commitment of $75,000 to maintain our missionary and ministry support at its current level.
