Westminster supports many urban and global ministries with volunteers and financial gifts. But the One Great Hour of Sharing offering gives us a chance to join in the broader mission of the Presbyterian Church (USA) with congregations throughout the country. Through the generosity of many, the greater church impacts the lives of sisters and brothers who have been affected by disaster, who are afflicted by hunger, or who suffer injustice. This offering supports three vital ministries which provide hope, help, and empowerment to people in more than one hundred countries throughout the world:
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
Working alongside communities as they recover and find hope after natural or human-caused disasters
Presbyterian Hunger Program
Supporting initiatives that create sustainable food systems and alleviate root causes of poverty so that all may be fed
Self-Development of People
Providing resources and education to oppressed and disadvantaged communities working to overcome poverty and injustice through initiatives they own and directly benefit from
We will receive this year’s One Great Hour of Sharing offering in worship on Palm Sunday, April 9 and will gratefully accept your gift to OGHS through May 7. Please make your check payable to Westminster Presbyterian Church and write “OGHS” in the memo line. You may also give online through this website – click “Donate Now” at the top of this page.
During this holy season, let us prayerfully consider our commitment to share God’s abundant love with neighbors near and far.

You will never know all the ways your loving commitment makes a real difference in our world!

Experience and appreciate God’s amazing winged creatures!
Plan now to join us on Sunday, April 23, at 10:10 a.m. in Community Hall for a visit from Phung Luu and his birds. Phung Luu is owner/operator of Animal Behavior and Conservation Connections. Our goal is to help Westminster members and children realize their intimate and spiritual connection to the natural world by experiencing the wonder of these birds.
Author and environmental activist Thomas Berry said: We need the sun, the moon, the stars, the rivers, and the mountains and birds, the fish in the sea, to evoke a world of mystery, to evoke the sacred.
