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 events and activities for everyone.
Our services are about an hour long, with an upbeat and diverse variety of music and 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. More details on all of our programs and activities can be found in the menu bar at the top of the page.
Spring is the joyous season that represents all things good in this world as dead things spring to life once more.
It’s the perfect time to reflect on the goodness of God as he regenerates life all around us. Spring brings with it hope just as each new bud brings hope of a coming blossom. What was once dead and dormant becomes fully alive.
What a wonderful reminder that our cold weary hearts can spring to life anew as well!
WPC invites you to join us for Worship, and all the special activities and events we have planned to help nourish your own spiritual growth all Spring long
Adult Education continues through the Spring with a study of the Gospel of Luke, every Wednesday night at 7:30 in Harlan Hall. Check back here and on the WPC Facebook page for new seasonal series updates and details.
First Wednesday of every month
Offered the First Wednesday of the Month at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary, Taizé worship includes 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 and 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. After the Service, those who wish to, can stay and pray privately in the Sanctuary.
Family Promise Meal Prep, Saturday May 18th at 3:00 PM at Harlan Hall
Westminster’s Mission Committee has created several local-focus ministries to help feed the needy in the Bayshore Area. We now cook breakfast and doing other volunteer work for The Kitchen at Saint Mark’s in Keansburg, do meal preparation for families sheltering in local churches participating in the Family Promise Program and cook dinner 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. Check out the WPC Facebook page for new events and updates. Contact the church office at 732-671-2585 or Lenita Gullman at

Two new events in WPC’s Music from Westminster Concert Series are on the Spring calendar.
On Sunday, May 5th at 3pm, WPC is honored to host professional violinist Raphael Klayman in concert. Mr. Klayman has played extensively both in the US as well as internationally in various leading orchestras and chamber ensembles. His recital here will feature music of Beethoven, Bach, Kreisler, and more.
On Sunday June 2nd a second concert will feature WPC's own Erika Saya, former music director Jessica Kortenhaus, and professional organist Kathleen Healy-Wedsworth. They will perform classic audience favorites plus some of their own personal favorites for organ and piano duet, piano solos as well as 4 hand piano duets! The concerts are free to attend but there is a suggested donation of $10 to help fund future music focused community outreach events, like WPC’s POW violin program, the Crossroads Coffeehouse and Faith, Hope and Music Festival.
This free-of-charge string instrument program designed for local children is now in its second year. A violin with a case, bow, and rosin are provided to each student by The Violin Doctor, Inc., along with sheet music, shoulder rests, and other accessories to use during the program. The lessons are provided by Jeffrey Boga, an accomplished violin professional violinist and Orchestra Director at Red Bank Regional HS. The students meet on Thursday afternoons during the school year, for a group music lesson followed by a pizza supper. The current class will complete the Spring semester with a concert in a local Senior Residence in June.
