At Westminster we have opportunities for all ages to grow their faith, find community, and to have fun!
Our Sunday morning worship at 10:30 am on Sunday mornings is a warm and welcoming service. This traditional service focuses on helping people connect with God in a way that goes beyond Sunday mornings. We want both regular and new attendees to recognize that it is not our building found at 801 Jackson Street SE that is the church, but that we, as the people of God, are the church! We hope that they will be inspired and equipped to go and be God's people in their families, neighborhoods, jobs, schools, and communities.
We would love to help you find your place at Westminster, please contact us with any questions!
