Gathering & Preparation
… having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

Almighty God our Father, we ask your forgiveness of our many sins. Like your people of old, we have too often complained against you and your people. We have failed to trust you; we have failed to believe you; we have failed to live in conformity with your Word; and even our best works are imperfect and defiled by sin. Have mercy upon us, we pray. Cleanse us and purify us, that we may bear the fruit of loving obedience; for Jesus’ sake, Amen.

Guidelines Regarding In-Person Corporate Worship – May 18, 2021
 
The Session & Deacons are deeply grateful to the Westminster church family for your prayers, patience, and support as we have sought wisdom in applying the recommendations of governing authorities regarding the pandemic.  We are having in-person corporate worship in the sanctuary on the Lord’s Day along with other in-person activities.  Our enhanced live-stream of our worship service is available for those who cannot attend.  For those who do attend in person, please adhere to the following guidelines:
 
  • Masks are optional.
  • Several pews in the rear of the sanctuary are reserved for those who desire to wear a mask during the entire service and sit among others who are masked as well.
  • Please enter the Church using the front, Main Street doors and wait for an usher to seat you.
  • Please wait to be seated by an usher in order to maintain our staggered seating arrangement.
  • Child care available for ages birth – 2 in our upstairs nursery.
  • Children’s Worship is available midway through the service for preschoolers and kindergartners.
  • An offering plate is located outside the sanctuary doors for your use since we will not be passing offering plates during the service.
 
We are thankful to be together in the fellowship of the church family; and yet acknowledge it is wise for some to stay at home. It is important for us to love one another well, in recognition that we have all been experiencing this season of life under God’s perfect providence. In all circumstances let us love the Lord and love one another.
