Connect with God and with each other
While we work together to fight the spread of the coronavirus and protect those most vulnerable, Westminster will be worshiping and gathering virtually so that we might continue to feel connected to each other and to God's presence. We hope you will join us!

Just because we are practicing "social" distance, doesn't mean we need to be spiritually distant. Join our weekly email list for information and updates about virtual coffee hour, hymn sings, outdoor fellowship events and educational opportunities. Just email Becky Kimberly, church administrator at to get on the list.
Need prayer or connection on the phone? While we are working remotely, you can leave a message at the church at 860-521-6240 or
e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you to a member of our Care Team.
