Upcoming Events

Winter at Westminster

class

Winter is a quiet time in life and in the life cycle of the church. It’s a perfect time for introspection and the examination of our hearts and souls as we look hopefully and ahead to a new season, literally and spiritually.

One of Westminster’s main priorities is providing opportunities for everyone to grow closer to God. We invite you to warm up to that idea this Winter by joining us for our traditional Worship or Taizé Prayer Services and many education and community outreach programs!

Join us as well for special Services and Activities as Lent approaches and we prepare for Holy Week.

Wednesday, February 14th 2018

This year Lent begins on Wednesday, February 14th - Valentine’s Day! As Jesus is God’s gift of love to the world, Lent is the Church’s gift to Christians and a time to return to the Lord and reorganize our priorities.
The Lenten season is a time to take stock of our lives. It pushes us to move beyond daily routines to let the Word of God penetrate our life and lead us to fundamental truths about who we are, where we come from and what path we must take in life.
We invite you to participate in all the worship and fellowship opportunities at Westminster this Lent so that we might return to the Lord through repentance, prayer, and listening to the Word of God.

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, February 14th 2018 7:30 PM

class

Ash Wednesday Services will be offered on February 14th, at noon and 7:30 pm. The noon service is a brief 20-minute service designed for working people on their lunch hour. Ashes will be distributed.
The evening service is our traditional Ash Wednesday service featuring the distribution of ashes and Holy Communion. Both services set the tone for Lent – the 6-week spiritual journey in which we aim to recommit our lives to the Lord.

Special Series and Sermons

Westminster members and friends will have 2 opportunities in Lent – Sunday afternoons at 3 pm and Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm to attend special programs that will help them gain insight and knowledge about Christianity’s most important doctrines and help enrich their spiritual life.

2018 Lenten Sermon Series "Heaven"

Sunday Afternoon at 3 PM Throughout Lent

class

Is heaven real? Is there a place called heaven? There are many popular myths about heaven and where it is that create misunderstanding.

The series features powerful teaching on heaven from three great preachers of our time:

Rev. Tim Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan;

Rev. Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor of Cleveland’s Parkside Church and the powerful and relevant voice behind the Truth for Life Christian Radio ministry

Rev. Billy Graham, the most influential preacher of the 20th century who created a beautiful video on Heaven as his last will and testament to Christians.

Mission Accomplished

March 3rd and 31st

class

Westminster’s Mission Committee has launched a number of new 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 and meal preparation for families sheltering in local churches participating in the Family Promise Program. Volunteering for these programs is a wonderful, rewarding way to be a blessing and serve hope and healthy meals to the less fortunate. Contact the church office at 732-671-2585 for information about being part of the March events.
