Thank you for visiting the Westminster Presbyterian Church website! We hope you enjoy browsing our website, and that you find a lot of useful information. We invite you to join our fellowship. Our Sunday School begins at 9:00 and our Worship begins at 10:30.  NURSERY PROVIDED! 



The vision that has captured this church is that we would be "a house of prayer for all peoples." Come here if you want to be prayed for by name. We will pray that God will release blessings into your life, and into the lives of those you love. Come join us here if you want to connect with others who are on a spiritual journey. We don't have any prayer "experts," but we have people who are ready to try new things.

One thing we have here is called "prayer circles." People meet to share their lives and pray together. It's that simple. We have been surprised by the way these circles have brought us together, taught us how to be Christian, and encouraged us.

Westminster was first organized in 1951, holding services in a strip mall Laundromat near Indian School Road and 19th Avenue. Washing machines were rolled away to make room for Sunday School classes. The year 1952 was an important year as the church was formally chartered by the Presbytery and began meeting at Grandview school, now the site of Osborn Middle school on Highland, and began construction of the facility on 19th Avenue. Soon part of the original brick church structure was completed, and double services were being held in Fellowship Hall. The current Sanctuary was completed in 1965.

Presbyterians enjoy a rich heritage and history as part of the Reformed church tradition dating to sixteenth century French theologian John Calvin. It is characterized by the importance of lay leadership at all levels of the church. The name Presbyterian comes from the Greek word for elder, the name given to ordained lay persons charged with the leadership of the church. Presbyterians began their work in America in the late 1600's and missionaries came to present-day Arizona more that 100 years ago to convert the Native Americans and organize the settlers. Churches are located throughout the state and on most Indian reservations.


Maundy Thursday Service


We will gather in Fellowship Hall at 7:00 PM on Thursday, March 29, for our Maundy Thursday service. This gathering, which includes the celebration of the Lord's Supper, recalls how our Lord Jesus gathered with his disciples in the upper room on the eve of his death. On this occasion, he washed their feet and gave them a new commandment, to love one another as he loved them. Join us for this solemn and memorable service.


Special prayer

Let's pray this week for the several hundred Christians who live in Somalia, the country which the World Watch List 2018 identifies as the third most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian.



Next Sunday  03-25-18

Next Sunday is both Palm  Sunday and Passion Sunday.  On this day, we remember Jesus' triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem when he was recognized as the long-awaited King.  We also remember that his kingship is unlike any other, because he laid down his life on our behalf.  For this reason, we worship him as the King who came as a Servant.


Dear lord,

Thank You for fearfully and

wonderfully creating each of us.

Thank You for giving us worth in

Your eyes. Help us live as the one

You uniquely intended us to be.

Help us abide instead of strive,

living peacefully and joyfully as

heirs to Your Kingdom and

co-heirs with Christ.

In Jesus' Name,




(Julie Sunne)
