Westminster Presbyterian Church
We're a place that values everyone. Our Sunday School Programs and Activities For Children are fun, wholesome, and safe.
Adult Education Activities are informative and engaging. We offer a wide variety of
weekly, monthly and seasonal events and activities for everyone.
Our services are about an hour long and offer a variety of traditional and contemporary music in a warm and intimate atmosphere. Our sermons are thought-provoking and relevant; meant to inspire you and provide practical guidance for the rest of your week.
The weeks following Christmas are a quiet time in life and in the life cycle of the church. We tend to hunker down and hibernate as we look hopefully forward to the promises and fresh starts of the New Year and eagerly await the coming of spring.
WPC invites you to spend time this winter renewing your spirituality and refueling your soul by joining us for our traditional Sunday Worship at 10:00 am or our monthly Taiz? Prayer Service, adult Bible studies, special music events, or volunteering for our many community outreach mission activities.
Begins in January at 7:30 pm
Adult Education resumes January 15th with a closer look at Romans. Another special series will be offered for Lent. Check back here and on the WPC Facebook page for updates and details.
January 8, February 5th & March 4th
Offered the First Wednesday of the Month at 7:00 pm in the
Sanctuary, Taiz? worship features softly sung prayers of
hope, peace, meditation, periods of silence, and short
readings. It?s a quiet and beautiful alternative to our
formal Sunday Worship that gives worshipers a chance to
take a break from the hectic pace of life, sit quietly in
the darkened candlelit Sanctuary, and let simple beautiful
songs, the sense of well-being and feeling of renewed faith
wash over you. Following the Service, those who wish to, can
stay and pray privately in the Sanctuary.

Westminster?s Mission Committee has created several local-focus
ministries to help feed the needy in the Bayshore Area. We?re now
cooking breakfast and doing other volunteer work for The Kitchen at
Saint Mark?s in Keansburg, meal preparation for families sheltering
in local churches participating in the Family Promise Program and at
the Ronald MacDonald House in West Long Branch.
Volunteering for these programs is a wonderful, rewarding way to
be a blessing and serve hope and healthy meals to the less fortunate.
WPC also regularly participates in Habitat for Humanity projects helping
refurbish and build homes for the needy in Monmouth County.

Lent is the season where we turn back into ourselves and listen to the
voice of God. We invite you to participate in all the worship and
fellowship opportunities Westminster will be offering during Lent 2020
so that we might return to the Lord through repentance, prayer,
and listening to the Word of God.
Lenten Series and Special Activities are now in the planning stages
including a special Wednesday Night Live Series. Check back here or
visit the WPC Facebook Page for updates.
Two Ash Wednesday services will be offered on Wednesday,
February 26th 2020 at noon and 7:30 pm. The noon service will be

Holy Week begins on April 5th, Palm Sunday.
WPC?s Mission Committee has arranged for a Little Free Library that will offer uplifting and inspirational adult and children?s books to the congregation and the wider Middletown community starting this spring. WPC?s Little Library will be located roadside near the PAR Garden at the campus entry.
The Little Free Library Sharing Network is an organization whose mission is to build community, spark creativity, and inspire readers. There are over 75,000 Little Free Libraries worldwide. The Library is a small structure on a post which contains books for anyone to borrow and return (or keep) or exchange. The ?Library? will officially be erected and opened by early spring. For now, the Mission Committee has set up a free lending library in the church vestibule behind the blue doors that can be accessed 24/7!
