Supporting Westminster while we are not able to meet as a church family.
Message from Pastor Chris
During this pandemic we at Westminster believe God is still at work in the world. As ever, one must look carefully to see him at work.
My boys have been playing with two little kids who don’t know much about church. In their imaginative play my boys have them “going to church” as spies, ninjas, fishermen, and etc. it’s a joy to see. Funny little opportunities to talk faith pop up. In our grown up world whenever someone is frustrated, in distress, sad, anxious, or any of the myriad emotions the pandemic is brining to the forefront we Christians have a word of peace and consolation to offer. Let’s embrace the opportunities to be loving in a time of challenge!
As we have been holding our services online we have noticed higher than average attendance, some old friends and family who have moved away are now able to join us, so too are some of our less mobile friends. Not “going to church” means not dressing up, not driving, not searching for parking! If you have never joined us, just contact me or our office and we will set you up. If you join us regularly please consider who might find our services useful and encouraging and share with them how to zoom along.
Of course, we are all looking forward to when we can worship in person together again, raising our voices in hymns of praise, I predict shivers and pinpricks on my arms when I finally get to hear our choir make a joyful noise. In fact, I was recently in my office and I noticed the calendar still stuck in March, it brought a lump to my throat.
These are difficult days for everyone and like many organizations that rely on charitable donations and rentals from small community groups, we are deeply appreciative of any gifts at this time. We seek to offer affordable spaces for crucial community activities and initiatives as well as provide pastoral/religious services to our neighbourhood. Please visit our page “Supporting Westminster” if you can help.
Paul wrote to the Romans,
As we go from here, remember this:
As followers of Jesus Christ,
we have not received a spirit of fear,
but one of hope and confidence.
For we are children of God,
members of God’s own family,
and heirs with Jesus Christ himself.
So go out with joy to love and serve the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Christopher Clarke
Minister, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Ottawa
