Search Committee for the New Minister
The Search committee has continued to meet through the summer and fall as we search for the right Minister. It is a good and faithful group that represents different aspects of the life of the Westminster congregation. It has been a growing experience for all, listening and learning from each other. Please continue to keep in your prayers, the search committee, the process being undertaken, and the person whom even now, God is calling to be our next Minister.
Maintenance and Finance
As part of our Thanksgiving celebration, we began a fundraising campaign for window renovation in the sanctuary and lower hall. We are celebrating the light of our ministry and showing we are open to the community to bring the word of Christ. The total cost of the window replacement was just under $50,000.
You can still make a donation for the renovations of the windows. While the campaign ended Sunday October 27th, 2019, we will be pleased to receive donations until the end of the year.
To date, $4,240.00 has been raised.
For donations, please write ‘windows’ on your offering envelopes or use the visitor’s envelopes. If you have made a donation already, the Session thanks you, and if you are planning to make a donation, the Session encourages you to donate with their thanks.
Sunday Worship Participation
We are a part of the body of Christ: One body – many parts. We offer the congregation the opportunity to be a part of and to actively participate in the worship service on Sunday mornings. We do this by arranging for greeters at our entrance doors to welcome everyone into worship. We encourage others to read the scripture lessons and we are looking for others to support our Audio-Visual technology. Please consider saying ‘Yes’ to serving. For more info about serving during worship, please contact Catherine Mackay, Maureen Cleary, Betty Jean Bone or Carol Ann Joiner.
The worship team supports our supply ministers & worship leaders with our worship experience each Sunday at Westminster. As we move into the Fall, Rev Floyd MacPhee will be leading many of our worship services. He will be the consistent minister for us as we continue on in our church vacancy journey. We are so thankful for him and the worship experience he is providing with and for us – thanks be to God!

Pastoral Care at Westminster
We provide pastoral care in different ways. The pastoral care team visits people in retirement and nursing homes, as well as those that are unable to attend church or church functions. Additionally, the congregation of Westminster provides pastoral care through: coffee hour on Friday mornings at Carlingwood, fellowship after church on Sunday mornings, breakfast at Kristy’s, the prayer chain, taking people for appointments, providing a listening ear and just being a friend; offering a smile, a hug, a drive.
In the words of the apostle Paul, “I give thanks to God for all of you.”
