◊ WPC’s 21-Day Challenge Is Underway

Westminster members and friends are in the midst of a 21 Day Challenge: taking one action each day for 21 days to further our understanding of race and racism. Interested in participating but haven’t taken the plunge? The 21 day challenge is self-directed, so you can begin anytime. Click here to watch a recording of our June 17th introductory meeting explaining the reasoning behind the challenge and tips for getting started. A list of books, articles, podcasts, documentaries, scripture readings, and more, including resources for families with young children, is available at https://wpcaustin.org/21-day-challenge/. Join us on Zoom, tonight and July 8 at 7 pm, to discuss what you’re learning.

 

 

 

◊ Zoom Coffee Time 
Missing church coffee hour? We are too! Sunday morning 5 minutes after virtual worship, grab your beverage and snack of choice and join host Elise Ragland for some casual social time with church friends – via Zoom, of course.

 

 

 

 

Children and Families—Let’s Get Together

Covenant Reminder at the Rock “Choose Who You Will Serve” Sunday School

Sunday, July 5th – 9:30 am – for 3 yr. olds – 1st graders. Bring a rock or other nature item to Sunday School this week. We’ll look at those rocks and talk about how Joshua and the people of Israel decided to continue to serve the Lord.

10:15 a.m. – for 2nd – 5th graders. How do we put God first in these summer days when we get to choose so many of our own activities?

Look for the Zoom links in this week’s newsletter and email.

For more info, visit our Children’s Ministry Events page.

 

 

Thank You!

Thanks to all who participated in our Stock the Pantry campaign! With contributions to the campaign from the Westminster community and the matching grant from a generous member, we are able to send $26,000 to Manos de Cristo for their food pantry, which is busier than ever as the pandemic stretches on. Thank you for your generosity and your commitment to feeding our hungry neighbors.
