◊ Reconnections Class – Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
What does it look like to live a “Wholehearted Faith?” Join the Reconnections Class on Sunday mornings at 9:45 in Room 10 as we ask candid questions about the stories we’ve been told—and the stories we tell—about our faith, ourselves and our world. Wholehearted Faith is Rachel Held Evans’ posthumous book of essays after her untimely death in 2019—put together with the assistance of her friend Jeff Chu. All are welcome.

 

 

 

 

 

Attention All Band, Orchestra Members and Instrumentalists

If you play an instrument in band or orchestra at school OR if you used to play an instrument OR if    you are an adult who still plays an instrument, you are welcome to join us for an Intergenerational Summer Orchestra. ISO is a great opportunity to keep playing over the summer while spending time together with others in our church family—and also play for worship a time or two (or more) before the summer is over! We will select a convenient time to meet (likely Sundays after church or another workable time for most or all). For more info and to sign up, please contact our Organist/Pianist sherylstack@gmail.com. No expenses or fees to join, just your instrument and  a willing spirit! Come make a joyful sound!

AV Help Wanted

Westminster’s Worship Committee is seeking volunteers to run the livestreaming system for Sunday morning worship. Volunteers conduct sound checks, start our streams on Facebook and YouTube, and switch between camera angles throughout the service. Basic comfort with computers and willingness to learn are the only skills necessary – we can teach you the rest! We hope that new volunteers will be able to help at least once a month. Interested? Contact Pastor Ellen.

 

 

 

 

 

◊ Register for VBS
Our registration for VBS is open! A food truck party is coming to VBS! Rediscover all the ways God has used food throughout our salvation history to connect, nourish and bring us joy. July 25th – 29th, 2022 is the week! VBS is for children ages 3- 4th grade. WPC’s VBS is a morning program followed by an afternoon half-day biking camp. Children and youth who have finished 5th – 12th grade are our valued sous chefs as we roll with the food truck through Bible stories newly heard. Adults are needed to volunteer with home prep of crafts, helping in-person or even putting up decorations. We can’t wait to see what’s cookin’ up this summer at VBS!
