Unison Prayer of Confession

O eternal God and merciful Father, we humble ourselves before your great Majesty against which we have frequently and grievously sinned. We acknowledge that we deserve nothing less than eternal death. We continually transgress your commandments; failing to do what you have commanded us, and doing that which you have expressly forbidden. Have compassion upon us in our infirmities. Wash us in the pure fountain of Christ’s blood, so that we may become clean and white as snow. Cover us with his innocence and righteousness, for the glory of your Name. Deliver our understanding from all blindness, and our hearts from all willfulness and rebellion. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.
