Christian Education

Adults

Westminster has a number of small groups that meet for prayer and mutual support of one another.  We are always ready to begin new groups as we grow!  Talk to the pastor or the Director of Christian Education about joining one of our existing groups, or explore the possibility of participating in a newly formed group.

Specific activities for adults include, but are not limited to: Bible study, Sunday school classes, small groups, WOW (Westminster on Wednesdays),  music groups, seasonal & short term studies, Sewing circle, Tables of Eight.

Young Adult

Our young adult ministry continues to grow and be a vibrant part of our church.  The YA ministry includes the Young Adult Sunday school class (Sundays at 10:10 am) and our Wednesday night time of study and fellowship that meets following the family meal, and at the same time as the children and youth activities.  Topics covered in recent small groups and classes have included The Gospel According to Pop Culture, faith based movie release studies, women’s  topics and issues,  and much more.

Specific activities for Young Adults include, but are not limited to: Sunday school class, Bible studies, women’s studies, WOW, music groups, and fellowship outings.

Youth (ages 11-18)

Westminster offers a variety of programs and activities, enabling youth to connect in many ways at WPC.  Specific activities include Youth Group, Sunday School, Senior High Bible Study,  WOW night (which offers youth music  and the Parable Players drama team), Confirmation class, camps and retreats, and the worship service usher team.  Youth Ministry at WPC embraces events such as lock-ins, mission opportunities, games, field trips and fellowship events.  The Senior High Bible study is designed for teens looking to dig deep into the scriptures and increase their overall Biblical knowledge….the Parable Players present skits in worship, and is open to grades 6-12…the music program includes youth choir, youth bells, and opportunities to offer solo music in worship.

Children

Families will find a wide variety of ways to involve their children in the life of Westminster.  Kids will love Sunday school each week, learning the wonderful stories in the Bible.  They can also express themselves musically on Sunday mornings through singing and Orff instruments during the SS hour.  Wednesday night WOW offers a time of food, fun, games, lessons and the occasional outreach field trip.  Younger kids get a Children’s Time all to themselves during the worship service before participating in the Children’s Church program each Sunday.  Additional opportunities include a seasonal children’s musical, a Christmas pageant, a Wednesday Mother’s Morning Out & Storytime program (beginning summer 2017), field-trips and fellowship events.

Nursery (children under 4)

A nursery with paid attendant on staff is available for our youngest ones on Sundays, during the WOW program, during choir rehearsals upon request, and at various other specified times, enabling parents to participate in church activities.

WOW- Westminster on Wednesdays

WOW is our weekday learning and exploring option for all ages.  The evening begins at 5:30 with dinner prepared by groups of volunteer WPC chefs.  Following dinner, there is an organized activity for children, music and drama for teens,  and a program for adults.  Sessions for adults have included presentations by historians, authors, local ministries, community leaders, musicians and more.  Join the church e-mail list to get weekly updates on programming.

Stewardship

Stewardship

I have many great memories already at Westminster. I’ve learned a lot in my youth group and Sunday School classes (and eaten a few donuts too!). I was confirmed last year, and really enjoy participating in Communion. It makes me feel mature and part of our congregation. And last year I had a role in our Christmas musical! My favorite part was keeping a secret copy of the script on stage to show the shepherds the lines they forgot! I also get to participate in our youth choir. I recently sang my first solo, and felt really good about all the compliments I got. I’m so thankful for my church family!
