In our worship services on January 28th, we officially began our Capital Campaign which culminated in our commitment celebration weekend on June 2-3. This campaign will help us address deferred maintenance and necessary safety improvements, upgrade our kitchen and classroom spaces, and make our building more welcoming – all in support of our mission as a beloved community of Christ.
Westminster 2020 – Forward in Faith, the theme for our campaign, has been a journey for the congregation in a process that has involved us in a focused time of inspiration and reflection on that to which God calls us, and what we are to do in our lives and in our community in God’s name.
Our campaign is about more than just finances. It’s an opportunity for us to live our mission to be a people who are: spiritually exploring, open and inclusive, committed to a faith that is applicable, welcoming of families and children, and grounded in Christ. Working together, we will ensure a bright future for Westminster for years to come and create greater opportunity for all people to better know God’s love.
Ours is the privilege and opportunity to continue to build up our church, celebrate the abundance God places in our lives, and carry forward the vital ministry we share.
We thank you for your generosity and commitment to be a part of God’s promise for us as we move Forward in Faith on our Westminster 2020 Campaign.
