These funds send mission co-workers around the world to work in partnership with churches in diverse countries, develop curriculum, provide resources to support our ministry, and many other things..

Love in the Name of Christ (Love INC) is a national organization that joins churches in a community together to help persons in need by using what each church can do best. Westminster supports Love INC through direct volunteer participation, financial support for benevolence and operating expenses, and personal follow-up beyond the initial need for which someone is referred to us.
LINCC stands for "Love In the Name of Christ Committee," Westminster church's committee that works with individuals referred to us through Love INC.
Special opportunities for giving abound during the year, and we try to provide enough information in advance to enable participants to plan their giving. Seasonal giving opportunities to meet the needs of others in our community include “Save a Sole” sock collection for shelters and clothing banks, Thanksgiving baskets, and Christmas gifts. We also participate in the four Presbyterian special offerings. Giving received all the time includes toiletries, clothing, sheets & towels.
