Through Church School classes, special programs, inter-generational events, and discussion groups, Westminster provides opportunities for people of all ages to nurture their faith. The Church School, which meets from September through May on Sunday mornings, from 9:30-10:40 AM, is the heart of these efforts and provides classes for people of all ages. There is also a weekly prayer group, a prayer shawl group, etc. Additional evening programs, events and workshops also occur through the year.
Adult Christian Formation for January 2022: Weekly Classes – Sundays, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Prayer Shawl Ministry: Care and the love of knitting and/or crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those within our church and beyond. Since 2011 and under the guidance of the Pastoral Deacons and church staff, we have given shawls to console those who are grieving, comfort those who are ill, and bring joy and gratitude during times of celebration. We meet on the third Monday of each month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. If you are interested in joining this special ministry or have questions, please contact Beth Hochstetler.
Tuesday Evening Bible Study: This year we are studying, Lessons My Grandmother Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus by Merryl Blair. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary—Matthew names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt, as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place? And what can Jesus’s grandmothers-of-the-faith teach us? By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
Here is the list of our Bible Study dates, the 2nd Tuesday of each month, at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom until January, when we will revisit how we will meet:
- January 11
- February 8
- March 8
- April 12
- May 10
- June 14
