Dear Westminster Family and Friends: Do you know Jesus?  Notice I did not ask if you know about Jesus.  There is a big difference. In our study of Philippians, we come to a section where Paul speaks of the “surpassing worth of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord.”  He goes on to tell us his main […]

DAY 278 (it seems) COVID-19 Thoughts from the Pastor: Our church family is finding adherence to the COVID-19 social restrictions exacerbated by the select reopening of stores and businesses.  If I can go to Home Depot, then why can’t we get together for worship? There are good reasons. It seems as a society, we’re willing […]

FROM THE PASTOR      I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the Gospel… Philippians 1:12  When Paul says “what has happened to me,” he means his imprisonment.  He is in Rome, chained to a guard under house arrest, waiting for a trial to […]

In all times and especially these uncertain times, I am grateful to serve a Risen Lord with a team of leaders as we have here at Westminster.  Every Sunday night, the staff and Session have been gathering for a ZOOM meeting to check in, pray, and attend to the ongoing work of the church.  This […]

Dear Westminster Friends and Family, While some front line workers are more stretched than ever (and thank God for you!), others are learning to cope with what I am calling a “forced sabbath” during this pandemic.  The idea of a Sabbath goes back to the beginning of time. And on the seventh day God finished […]

Dear Friends, I don’t know about you, but I am thankful we are now in the season of Easter!  Lent is always tough, it should be.  This year was especially overwhelming though.  I found my usual Lenten practices and preparations scattered in my thoughts and heart with everything else.  It wasn’t until Palm Sunday I […]

Holy Week and Easter

 Dear Westminster Family and Friends, We are entering a Holy Week unlike any we’ve experienced before, and while there may be anxiety, wouldn’t you agree it is often in those uneasy moments of life we are able to clearly sense God’s presence?  I pray it is true for you this week, and the events of this […]

FROM OUR PASTOR  Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone…Genesis 2:18  I’m starting to feel like my fish.  Granted, he’s a betta fish, so solitary confinement is preferable to him, but in these days of physical distancing, it has been hard to be removed from the fellowship of […]
