All Are Welcome
You’ll meet a wide variety of people in our church, a diverse tapestry praising God and connecting with one another. We proudly are a fully inclusive congregation.
We blend the great traditional hymns of the church with the best of contemporary sacred music. Preaching connects scripture with the everyday issues we face in the 21st century.
Our children worship with us, with age-appropriate materials, a children’s message, and a special time each week for children to learn and grow in their faith together.
Partnering with over 20 community-based organizations, we seek to put our faith into action, working alongside our neighbors in need.
Connect & Grow
We seek to foster a deep sense of community as we grow in our faith.

GOOD FRIDAY SERVICER
April 7 at 7:00 pm
On Good Friday, April 7, Covenant and Westminster Presbyterian Choirs will come together to share passion hymns from John Ferguson’s “St. John Passion”. The Tenebrae service will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 7pm, and will feature both choirs.
“Tenebrae” is a Latin word meaning “shadows.” It is the name given to a service that dates back to 8th Century Rome in which the death of Jesus Christ is commemorated.
In the Tenebrae service, we will read John’s account of the last days of Christ. After each reading, a candle is extinguished. As the light diminishes and the shadows lengthen, the symbolism points clearly to the physical and spiritual darkness and despair that accompanied the passion of our Lord.
Sunday, April 23 – 11:00am
Member Mark Kliewer will present and adult forum on poetry with emphasis on Christian themes. We will examine 2-3 poems for craft, content, and effect. Please join us after worship that Sunday!
HOLY WEEK AT WESTMINSTER
Sunday, April 2: Palm/Passion Sunday – 9:45a
Join the congregation and choir in the narthex a few minutes before worship, as we begin the Procession of the Palms and follow Jesus on his triumphant entry into Jerusalem. During the sermon time we will have a reader’s theatre presentation of the passion story according to the gospel of Matthew.
Thursday, April 6: Maundy Thursday – 6:30pm: Meal, 7:00pm: Worship
This meaningful and family friendly gathering in fellowship hall starts with soup and bread. After the meal, we will worship together including communion and the washing of hands in memory of our Lord Jesus Christ during the Last Supper.
Good Friday, April 7: Service of Tenebrae – 7:00pm
The service of Tenebrae, or “shadows”, grew out of the practice of night and early morning prayer on Good Friday, with a focus on the passion story. The service includes scripture readings and song, as candles are slowly extinguished as the passion story progresses. Tenebrae ends in silence and darkness.
Easter Day, April 9: Worship – 9:45am, Children’s Egg Hunt – 11:00am
Be with us as we celebrate the most festive day of the church year. Christ is Risen!
He is risen indeed! Children will enjoy an Easter egg hunt after the service.
