MARK YOUR CALENDARS…for the third annual WPC women’s retreat at Graves Mountain Lodge on May 4-6! We are excited to announce that the women of Westminster Presbyterian Church will gather for food, fellowship, and study the first weekend in May. More information will be coming your way soon, but the reservation has been made and plans are underway. The cost of the retreat will be $175.00 and will include two nights of lodging and five meals. Consider joining us for this special time.
Registration will begin in March.
No Hammering Required is a one Sunday “class” in which we will get an update on Habitat in C’ville and all the ways – especially those that don’t require building skills – volunteers contribute to that effort to chip away at the affordable housing crisis.
Come to the Library at 9:30 on January 28 either to learn and maybe to sign up to help Westminster host Community Conversations for the families who will move into Harmony Hill on Fifth Street or one of the other volunteer tasks that fit you.
In case of snow, sleet, or freezing rain, we will air any cancellation on local radio and TV stations. Bear in mind that there are Westminster Presbyterian Churches in many other cities—including Waynesboro, Lynchburg, and Richmond. Please be sure you hear the announcement for Westminster in Charlottesville.
In addition, our website will have up-to-date information: www.westminsterva.org. Any weather-related changes to the worship schedule or other activities will be posted on the main page of our website.
The church’s voicemail message will also announce any cancellations due to inclement weather. People who have specific responsibilities—like church school teachers, ushers, musicians, sound system engineers—should check one of the above resources if there is inclement weather.
We hope we won’t be having inclement weather on Sundays, but please keep this information in mind if bad weather comes our way on the weekend.
