New class series
On Sunday, December 2, our 9:00 AM class will begin a study of the story of Jesus’ birth which is told in the Gospel of Luke. We will start with the announcement of the birth of John the Baptist, and keep reading the account of how God has personally entered our world to save us. Each week, we will take up one segment of the story. Our group always has a lot of vigorous discussion as we study the Bible, and we’re happy to welcome new participants. Join us in the Lounge each Sunday at 9:00 AM

 

 

Classical Piano Concert
Sam Rotman, the amazing classical pianist who has been with us at Westminster a couple of times, will be presenting an hour-long free concert at Jesus First Church, 5th Avenue & Missouri. It will take place on Sunday, December 16, 6:00 PM. A freewill offering will be received. After the concert, there will be refreshments and an opportunity to purchase autographed Sam Rotman CDs. Our congregation has been invited to join the Jesus First congregation for this festive occasion.

 

ADVENT NEWS FROM THE
MUSIC MINISTRY

Choirsters and bell ringers are pleased to be sharing with members and friends of Westminster new music for Advent, Christmas and the 2019 church year. Generous contributions for new choir anthems and handbell books have been made in memory of Jean Latimer.
Two new anthems for Christmas and one for 2019 have been purchased. Additionally, a new book of preludes for the Tintinnabulators has been ordered. The Christmas anthems shall be introduced late in December … and one on Christmas Eve. Our ringers are anxious to rehearse new preludes, starting in January.
At this time of year, our church musicians look back to 2018 and the great support we have received from all of you. We cherish the encouragement and the complimentary remarks that you have given. Also, we hasten to ask for any criticism you may have as we seek to serve the Lord together.
Singers and ringers wish you many blessings as we celebrate our Savior’s birth.

 

 

Our Prayer Chain

 

Did you know that Westminster has a very powerful prayer chain? On Monday mornings we collect all prayer requests and give them to those who participate in our prayer chain. Then, we pray for you all week long.

I have often asked prayers for family, friends and acquaintances, and sometimes even strangers who come up to me after hearing that I work at Westminster.

If you ever feel the need for prayer whether it be for financial, spiritual or any other need, our prayer chain is here to help. You can let us know at Sunday worship service or by calling the church office (602-274-2122) and we will forward your request. As I said, I have used this service many, many times. Also, after our Sunday worship service, we have someone at the front of the church who would be happy to pray with you. Please don’t ever feel embarrassed or hesitant to ask for prayer help. We are always here for you.

If you would like to be part of this ministry, please contact Debby Holmes (602-538-5063) or call the church office.

SPECIAL OFFERINGS

 

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

 

We give thanks to you for your support of Special Offerings, our collective witness to the love of Jesus Christ. By participating in Special Offerings, your congregation joins others churches to change lives around the world through ministries of compassion, advocacy, development, peacemaking, Christian formation, education and witness.

Thank you for the following support to Special Offerings. On June 18, 2018, we received $706.00 for One Great Hour of Sharing. Your congregation’s gift, when combined with that of others, will share the love of Christ with those in need.

Again, thank you for giving to enable all people to know God’s life-giving welcome in Jesus Christ. You are a valued partner in mission.

 

With gratitude to God for our shared mission,

Bryce Wiebe

Director, Special Offerings

 

  

From a thank you note we received:

 

This past year we have seen God work in amazing ways in the lives of the men and women we are serving.  Your generous giving has helped us reach out to "the least of these."  Their journey is not an easy one, as they learn to walk as Disciples of Christ in a fallen world while they transition back into society.

With your help, we hope to reach many more men and women this coming year  to  show them how walking with Jesus daily is the key to staying away from drugs, alcohol and all the vices that have ensnared them in their former lives.  Our men and women can attest to Jesus' words, "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:33 NIV).

thank you so much for helping us to make a difference in the lives of so many men and women coming out of prison.

In His Service,

Kenneth Sheets

Executive Director

 

  

FOOD PANTRY DONATION NEEDED

Westminster's church office maintains a small supply of nonperishable food.  From time to time, people come to us who are seeking assistance.  We like to be able to offer some sustenance to help them get through the day.  At this time, our supply is very low.  If you would like to make a difference in someone's life, you can do this by bringing some food items by the church office during he week, or on any Sunday.  We are especially in need of items that do not require cooking, since some of the people we meet do not have access to a kitchen.  Thanks for your support!
