    This year's 5K will support Living Waters for the World (LWW),  one of our partners since 2014. LWW trains volunteers to establish and lead water mission teams that partner with communities to implement and operate sustainable water purification systems and health education programs. Westminster has supported five water system installations in Honduras to date and with this year's 5K we hope to expand clean water in Honduras for years to come. Every dollar raised from this year's 5K, including registration, will go towards the Honduras Network Staff Sustainers initiative of LWW. Can't join us in person for the 5K? Join the team and do the 5K wherever you happen to be in the world or on another day! You can also support members doing the 5K by donating to our team. Click here to donate or register. If you have any questions about this year's event, please contact Jon Frost. We hope you'll join our team today!email sharing button

    Inquirer/New Member Class

    Membership is often a natural next step for those who have already attended our church and begun to explore our ministries.  Joining a church is not like joining a club.  There are no dues or secret handshakes.  The only requirement is a profession of belief in Jesus Christ.  Whether you are proclaiming this belief for the first time or restating your commitment along with a letter of transfer from a former church, we rejoice with you!

    Interested to learn more about or become a member of Westminster? This class is for you! All are welcome. There’s no obligation to join. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Childcare can be available if requested. The goals of the class are to:

    Increase awareness and understanding of

    • The basics of Christian faith and practice
    • The Presbyterian Church (USA)
    • Westminster Presbyterian Church

    Provide experiences of

    • Christian community as a place of support and encouragement
    • Reflection and conversation on God’s relationship with us

    Provide opportunities for:

    • Deepening our commitment to Jesus Christ
    • Making friends through the class
    • Discovering ways to connect with ministries of Westminster

    All are welcome. Register online. Questions? Contact Jennie Clark

    Location: Spellman Hall & Zoom

    10:45 am Sundays May 5 & 12 • Spellman Jr & Zoom
    This two week series is led by Dr. Manfred Brauch, Ph.D., a native of Germany, came to the United States in 1953 and became a U.S. citizen in 1959. Dr. Brauch taught New Testament Interpretation for 8 years at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary. Over 26 years at Eastern Baptist/Palmer Theological Seminary he held the positions of Academic Dean, Professor of Biblical Theology, and President. Click here to attend via Zoom.

    Part 1: What is Christian Nationalism? (and the ideology of White Supremacy, which often walks hand in hand with White Christian Nationalism)

    Part 2: Tracing the Historical Roots of Christian Nationalism and its various manifestations across the centuries, from the 4th Christian century to the present: "Christian Nationalism Across the Centuries and its Tragic Consequences"

    Part 3: Christian Nationalism in Biblical Perspective: We will explore how "Christian Nationalism" is a contradiction in terms, in light of the central teachings of the earliest Christian texts. This is true especially from the perspective of the life, ministry and teaching of Jesus, in which human understandings and uses of power – to control, restrict, oppress, exclude and manipulate -- are decidedly  rejected as contrary to the divine purposes for human-life-in-community. 

    We will reflect on how abusive uses of biblical texts in support of Christian Nationalism (and "white supremacy”) results in a "Christian Heresy" -- namely a violation of core values and beliefs of the Christian faith.
