September 24 through October 8th
7:00AM - 7:00PM
Beginning on Monday, September 24th at 7:00 am, Westminster launched its second consecutive hurricane relief effort to aid our fellow Americans devastated by Hurricane Florence. Once again, we will have a 54 foot trailer parked on the Great Lawn, donated (once again!) by the Bob Kortenhaus family and Speed Global Services, ready to be filled with relief supplies by Middletown residents who want to help the people of the Carolinas.
You will remember the great good that we at Westminster did together last year in aiding the victims of Hurricanes Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida, as well as by sending $5000.00 to Puerto Rico to help the residents there recover from Hurricane Maria. Now, with Florence, we have another chance to provide help and to restore hope to the beleaguered Carolinians.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to help sort and pack the relief supplies that will start to trickle in on Monday, increase throughout the week, and come in heavy on the weekend. Please sign up for a 2 hour slot in a time that works for you - but please do your part in this great crisis. A sign up sheet is available on the table in the Narthex.
Our drive will be completed during the week of October 8-12 when the donations are delivered to the Myrtle Grove Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, North Carolina which was devastated by Hurricane Florence and the floodwaters that followed.

First Wednesday of each month
Westminster offers an alternative worship service on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM. A Taizé worship service involves sung prayers of hope and peace, meditation, a period of silence, and short readings. It’s a quiet and beautiful alternative to our formal Sunday worship Service giving worshipers a chance to take a break from the hectic pace of life, to sit quietly in the darkened candlelit Sanctuary, and to let simple beautiful songs of faith wash over you. We invite you to put it on your calendar and give Taizé a try. You’ll leave the service with a deeper feeling of inner peace and nearness to God.
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 and those staying at the Ronald McDonald House. 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 Fall and Winter events.
WPC’s Music Mission under the direction of Erika Sayar has really struck a chord within the congregation and throughout the surrounding community. Back for an encore is the Crossroads Café, a seasonal coffeehouse featuring faith-based music performances by well-known local and up and coming praise music performers. The next event is scheduled for Friday, October 19th 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Admission is free. Holy Grounds Coffee and light refreshments are available. Visit the WPC Facebook Page for special music event news and updates.
One of the WPC’s newest offerings is a free music lesson program for under resourced youngsters around the Bayshore area. This recently launched free-of-charge string instrument program is designed for local children, grades 7-8. 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 for use during the program. The lessons are provided by Daniel Martinho, an accomplished musician and state certified music teacher. The students meet on Thursday afternoons during the school year, for a group music lesson followed by a pizza supper. Contact Erika Sayar at esayarwpc@gmail
