Announcing The First Annual WPC Ping Pong Classic, April 14th 2-4 p.m. During coffee hour, after committee meetings, and at gatherings of Fellowship on Tap this year, I have discovered that several people at Westminster share something in common: they love to play ping pong. So, Will Hochstetler and I are creating an intergenerational ping pong event we’re calling, “The First Annual WPC Ping Pong Classic” to be held on April 14th from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the WPC fellowship hall.
Besides being an opportunity for fellowship and fun, this table tennis event will essentially be a doubles tournament with participants rotating through six tables. And yes, we have a special WPC trophy to hand to the grand slammer. Sound like fun? Of course, this also means we will be searching for five pong tables that people are willing to share with us. If you have a table and paddles you are willing to loan for this event, please contact Ken or Will and we will make arrangements for a pick up time. All ages and skill levels are welcome! And if you simply want to be a spectator, that’s okay, too. Come for a time of food, fellowship, and amazing spin shots.
On Friday, March 16, at 7:30 pm, the Westminster Organ Concert Series presents an organ recital by Jonathan Schakel. The program will include music from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book by William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, as well as works by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, Dieterich Buxtehude, Jacques van Oortmerssen and Naji Hakim. The concert is free and open to the public.
The Nominating Committee is looking for your input! We’re looking for seven elders, four deacons and five people to serve on next year’s Nominating Committee (including two youth representatives). The committee next meets on February 28, so don’t be shy!
