Music Ministry at Westminster
The brilliant Christian psychiatrist, Dr. Walter Menninger, said that singing in a church choir was very helpful to him. After an exhausting day at work, he found it inspirational and soothing to go to choir practice at his church. The music enabled him to put stress of his day behind him, get in touch with something beautiful and holy, and the end of the day relaxed and uplifted. Come experience the beautiful and holy at Westminster, and enjoy fun, fellowship and endearing relationships as we work together to provide music that will enhance the services and inspire the congregation.
