WPC Youth Ministry 2.0 Sunday, Sept. 22, 11:15am
Our youth ministry continues to evolve into something we believe meets the spiritual needs of teens in our community. We do a lot of things different, some even strange. There’s a purpose for all of it. For parents and others interested, spend an hour with Jeff Shankle, our youth director, hearing about all the nuts and bolts of what we do, why we do it, how it works, and how you can participate. Time for questions as well.
Upcoming Events and Speakers
What Does That Mean? Wednesdays, Aug. 21-Sept. 4, 9:30am
It can be easy to fall into the habit of using "churchy" words without actually investigating what they mean. In this series, Ted, Rob, and Bethany will spend some time exploring in-depth three of those words - grace, providence, and salvation.

Remember Your Pledge Payments
Even as you travel this summer, please remember to keep up with your pledge payments, as church expenses are year-round. If you haven’t made a pledge in support of the 2019 budget, you may still do so by going online (www.wpctiburon.org) or contacting the church office. You may also simply choose to give directly to the plate offering during worship. Thank you for your ongoing support of Westminster!
A reminder that we now have a new online directory with member contact information. You may contact the church office for the password. Also, don't forget to add your personal/family photo to your profile. You may do so by going to the bottom of any directory page, click on “Manage My Family Info” to log-in with your personal password (if you have created one, or follow the prompts to create a personal sign-in.)We would like to eventually have only one directory online as the current photo directory is no longer being updated. Thank you.
