PDA staff are working with presbyteries on the ground to assess the needs. If you wish to support the response efforts, please make checks payable to Westminster Presbyterian Church (“Winter Storms” in the memo line). We will forward the collected funds to PDA.

At its December meeting, Westminster’s Session heard a report that Chris Clark would be taking on the essential ministry responsibilities of Children and Family Ministries, effective January 1, 2021, along with his work as Youth Director. As Chris is already familiar with many households, and a partner with former Director Sue Spotts in numerous ministry opportunities, the Children’s Spiritual Growth team and Personnel Committee agreed this was an excellent way to move forward, at least for an interim period. We’re grateful to Chris for his willingness to serve in this way.

Celebrate Recovery is excited to announce that we will be starting the Journey Continues on March 8, 2021 via Zoom. The Journey Continues is designed for women who have done at least one Step Study, which means they completed the Journey Begins (books 1-4) and have taken those truths to apply the principles they have learned to their lives. Take the next step on your recovery journey and take your recovery to the next level. Questions or to signup contact Virginia Jaeger. Let this program enhance your recovery.
We are excited and hopeful to be able to fill our classrooms with the wonderful sounds of children learning, laughing and playing starting in March. We will have a limit of 10 children per class.

Are you or someone you know struggling with isolation or exhaustion from the ongoing pandemic? Are you experiencing stress from health concerns, financial strain, job loss, or grief of any kind? If you are feeling weary or burdened by the unprecedented crises happening in our country, you may benefit from a “Caring Conversation.” A “Caring Conversation” is an opportunity to speak with a pastor, deacon, or other Westminster leader about your current concerns. If you would like to speak with someone for support, prayer, or assistance, please contact Pastor Ann.
As the pandemic continues into 2021, our Stephen Ministry program is available for support. Our trained Stephen Ministers are ready to meet via telephone calls, virtual technology, or one-on-one, in-person visits (with appropriate safety precautions). During this season of continued stress, uncertainty, isolation, and grief, you may find it beneficial to speak and pray with a Stephen Minister. Interested in learning more about the Christ-centered, compassionate care available through Westminster’s Stephen Ministry program, contact Pastor Ann.
