He was not rich or educated, but was familiar with hard work. He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. Register with one of the five small groups below to participate in this six-week journey, and take an in-depth dive into the life, faith, and character of Simon Peter during Lent. Participants are encouraged to get a copy of the book, Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple. Questions? Contact Jennie Clark.
We are placing a prayer wall outside the church building during Lent. We invite you to add your prayers to our wall. You are welcome to offer as many prayers as you need, returning to this wall as often as you need. On a prayer strip, write a word or phrase to represent your prayer to God. Then weave it inside the ampersand shape, adding it to the prayers of our larger community. Questions? Contact Chris Clark.

In the past, Westminster partnered with Bridge of Hope, a local organization that assists parents and their children in transitioning from situations of homelessness to permanent housing. We would like to rekindle our partnership with Bridge of Hope in 2021. Teams from our congregation will be trained to offer support as Neighboring Volunteers, walking with families as they move towards financial stability and emotional wholeness. In doing so, we help to restore hope and create brighter futures one family at a time. To learn more and/or find out how you can become part of a neighboring team, please contact Ann Hatfield.
