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.

Westminster's annual congregational meeting will be held on Sunday, January 28, two weeks from Sunday 14, following worship.  We will gather in Fellowship Hall, where we will talk together about the life of the church, hear from the Session, and view some  photos on the screen that will tell the story of the past year.  Plan to join us for this important occasion.


Next Sunday  01-28-18

You've heard of hospitalized patients spending time in "ICU," the intensive care unit.  sometimes that's exactly where you need to be.  Do you think there is a time for intensive prayer?  We will meet a woman who engaged in a time of intensive prayer, so great was her desire and her desperation.  She had a longing that God alone could fulfill.  Her name is Hannah, and her story is told in 1 Samuel 1.  From  her we can learn how to turn our longings into prayer.



Accept my prayers, dear Father,

for those who have

no one to love them

enough to pray for them.

Wherever and whoever

they are, give them a share

of my blessings, and in thy

love let them know that

they are not forgotten;

for Jesus' sake.
