Worship Joyfully. Serve Faithfully. Give Generously. Live Worthily.

Weekly Pastoral Greeting

June 15, 2021

Thursday marks the 6th anniversary of the Mother Emmanuel tragedy. Our hearts are still heavy, there is work to be done, and we know there is hope in Jesus Christ. From Scripture and the Constitution of our denomination, the PCUSA, we can declare with a clear and unwavering voice:

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. John 13:34

We believe that Christ’s work of reconciliation is made manifest in the church as the community of believers who have been reconciled with God and with one another…that this unity must become visible so that the world may believe that separation, enmity and hatred between people and groups is sin which Christ has already conquered, and accordingly that anything which threatens this unity may have no place in the church and must be resisted. Confession of Belhar (1986)

On the side of love,

Pastor Daniel

Return, Rebuild, Renew

This spring as part of the Sermon Series from Nehemiah, we invite you as a congregation to Return, Rebuild and Renew with Westminster. As you feel more comfortable and as more events and opportunities become available, we welcome you to return to a new

normal at Westminster, to rebuild that relationship and foundation with God through discipleship as a present congregation, and to renew your faith through worship and fellowship opportunities that will continue to evolve, change and grow.

As simple as the children’s rhyme symbolized to the right…
Here is the church,
here is the steeple,
open the doors
and here are ALL the people.

We hope to ALL return, rebuild and renew together soon.

NEW UPDATE ON COVID PROTOCOLS FOR WORSHIP

  • Hand sanitizer will be available and should be used upon entering.
  • Following the guidance of the CDC and our concern for the most vulnerable, masks are encouraged for all and optional for those who have been vaccinated. We recognize some, especially youth and children, are not yet eligible to be vaccinated and we encourage their continued mask use.
  • Please allow ushers to seat you and your family. Socially distanced seating is available.
  • During time for children, the children will remain with their family and not gather on the chancel steps. Following time for children at 11:00, adult leaders will lead children ages 3-5k to the Playground (weather permitting) or Covenant Hall for Children’s Church. Parents may pick them up there following the service.
  • Offering plates will be at the entrances/exits to receive your offering.

A Word about Seating: (NEW!)
While the ropes have been removed from most of the sanctuary and seating is open, there are still a couple of reserved sections:

  • The back right quadrant is available for those who prefer socially distanced seating. Please indicate your preference to an usher.
  • A few other pews are reserved for ushers/latecomers, acolytes, and staff.
  • At the end of the service, those in the socially-distanced section will be dismissed first, followed by the rest of the congregation.
