WEDNESDAY FAMILY DINNER
Our midweek dinner provides an opportunity to feast together and then participate in various small group experiences. Dinner is served at 6:00pm and costs $5 per person. The menu is posted each week via The City - where you can also RSVP. Childcare is provided and kids (K-5th) participate in Kids Inc.
BASKETBALL LEAGUES (Sample schedule)
This is a recreational opportunity in which 10+ teams and 15+ adult coaches participate in the St. Paul and YMCA leagues. Well over 100 children play basketball, aged 6-18. The season runs from roughly the first week in December to the first week in March. Teams meet here for practice several times a week. Games are played on Saturday mornings at various locations including our gym. The season closes with a special party for all involved.
At present, there are several small groups that meet in homes for a more intimate time of prayer, Bible study, and fellowship. In most cases, these groups have been initiated by lay members of the Westminster community. The formation of these groups is greatly encouraged and church leaders are developing strategies that would facilitate a growth in the number of these opportunities. Presently, there are men's Bible studies meeting Monday & Wednesday during the lunch hour at a local restaurant and two women's Bible studies meeting in the Church Parlor. Please watch the bulletin and newsletter for dates and times.
Dedicated to supporting one another in times of sickness, injury, grief, and loneliness, the 39ers of Westminster and their friends, aged 55+, get together each month. Generally, this gathering consists of a covered—dish luncheon, followed by a program featuring a speaker or a singer, musical, movie or another kind of entertainment. In addition, there are special Christmas programs and occasional gatherings at local restaurants. As part of their mission outreach, the 39ers support the After Care program and other charitable organizations. This is a wonderfully active ministry blessed by strong ties of Christian fellowship.
