Sunday worship regularly includes anthems by our choir, with occasional solos and small ensembles, especially during the summer months. People of all ages are encouraged to share their vocal and instrumental gifts. Special concerts for the church and community are held two to three times per year, using talents of Westminster’s musicians as well as guests from beyond our church.
Sunday School for children and youth (pre-school through high school) is held during worship. Following “Time for the Young and Young at Heart”, those who wish are invited to attend classes geared towards their age group (although they’re always welcome to remain in worship!) Nursery care is available for those who desire it.
Pastor’s Bible Study and other classes are offered after church or at various other times according to interest and inspiration! Recent topics of these classes have included Israel-Palestine issues, studies based on TV shows, book studies on God’s Politics, and The Purpose-Drive Life. Participants are encouraged to form “small groups” on a topic of their own interest, and the church will help with support and publicity. Many members participate in writing and/or using daily devotionals in the fall. Periodic retreats are offered. Upcoming events: 1) “Westminster Community Seminars” Member Dave Foster will lead a series of three sessions on Science and Religion. These will be held on three consecutive Saturdays at the Meijer Branch of Jackson Public Library March 25, April 1 & 8 at 10 A.M. Attend and invite some friends! 2) Fearless Faith Based on Max Lucado’s successful series of Sessions available on video, the messages invite you to envision a time in which you could trust more and fearless. There will be six sessions: Pastor Karen will provide the sermons and Joanne Nemecek will provide post-service discussion sessions on the following dates (4/16 is EASTER): 3/26, 4/2, 4/9, 4/23, 4/30, 5/7. Come join the discussions!
We schedule social events numerous times throughout the year for us to get to know one another informally and enjoy being together. They have included such things as monthly Potluck & Movie nights, game nights (or day!), golf scramble. Activities are for youth and/or adults.
