Upcoming Events

Winter at Westminster

Bible in the snow

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.

Wednesday Night

Begins in January at 7:30 pm

Bible Open

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.

Taiz? Worship Service

January 8, February 5th & March 4th

Prayer book of psalms cover

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.

Missions Accomplished

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. Contact the church office at 732-671-2585 or Lenita Gullman at lgullman@comcast.net for information about being part of the Winter events.

Lent & The 2020 Holy Season

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 20 minutes to accommodate those who are on their lunch hour.
Holy Week begins on April 5th, Palm Sunday.

The Little Free Library

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!
