Connect with God and with each other

Westminster Re-Opening Plan
Check back here for ongoing updates!
As the state of Connecticut continues to open up, the Session and Way Forward Teams of Westminster wanted to update you on our plans for returning to in-person worship and programming. As we promised, we have continued to envision a ‘new normal’ for our congregation, one that is more welcoming and inclusive, one that continues to reach out beyond our walls to build community, grow faith, and pursue justice.
Investing in our Online Worship Presence and Community
with AV Upgrade in the Sanctuary
This past year while offering online worship and programs: we have had new people worshiping with us regularly and engaging in our ministry; we have had past Westminster members re-engaging, despite the fact that they moved away years ago or had lost touch with our community; and we have had the gift of connecting with church members or former church members, family and friends in surprising and exciting ways.
It is clear that not only are we being called to keep doing online ministry, we are also being called to invest in our online presence and community so that we might continue to share God’s love far and wide.
Mission Awareness Speaker Series
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in Puerto Rico
On June 13, we will welcomed our friend and partner from the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) of Puerto Rico, Michelle Muniz, Disaster Recovery Coordinator for the Presbytery of San Juan. PDA is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Michelle shared where things stand in Puerto Rico, hurricanes long term recovery process, southwestern regional earthquakes response, and challenges during the closing of PDA’s host sites during the pandemic.
Westminster, which sent two groups to Puerto Rico in 2019, plans to return to Puerto Rico to work with PDA in 2022. For those who missed the speaker series, please click the link below for a recording. For a list of great resources on the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, click here.
