Worship Life

Worship is the heart of our ministry - and at the center of our mission of 'Knowing Christ and Making Christ Known.'  We are committed to worship that engages us with the Holy God, and pushes us out into the world as empowered disciples.

Westminster is a congregation where the proclamation of the Word of God and the celebration of the Sacraments are the center of our worship.

Sermon texts often come from the Revised Common Lectionary, an outline of the Bible that covers all of Scripture every three years. Pastors in many churches around the world follow this outline. It is also not uncommon for our pastors to depart from the lectionary to preach a sermon series.

Our various worship styles might be described as Traditional, Contemporary, Contemplative, and even eclectic. We praise God utilizing a wide range of music, instruments and liturgical approaches.  Our worship is regularly led by vocal choirs for all ages; three separate worship teams/bands; several bell choirs; occasional ensembles of strings and brass; a full concert band at Christmas, and numerous other instrumentalists throughout the year.  Special music services are offered periodically.
