New Outreach Committee

On October 30th the Session established a new committee, the Evangelism & Outreach CommitteeThis reflects our understanding of the importance of inviting people to our church and letting the community know about the good work going on at Westminster. 

This is your chance!  If you have a heart for inviting people into the good news of Christ, or if you have a desire to make Westminster's light shine, please join in the important work of this committee.   Come to the next committee night, which is Tuesday, December 2, at 7:00 p.m.  Or mention your interest to any member of the session, and we will get you connected. 

Evangelism in general means sharing the good news of the Gospel.  In particular, the Evangelism and Outreach Committee will share about Westminster with our community.  This committee will oversee:

1. participation in events to tell people in the community about Westminster

2. communication to the community (newspaper ads, website, etc.) 

3.  outreach to visitors who come to our church

This will be an official committee of the Session, so the chair of the committee will write up minutes of the meetings and share them with the Session, including proposed actions for Session approval.

Ladies' Night Out- October 2014

The Westminster Ladies' Night Out was held October 16th at Young's Dairy Jersey Inn. A group of about 25 women of all ages enjoyed great food, freewheeling conversation, and satisfying fellowship. It was agreed that the cheese curds and bread pudding were especially good. The group decided that its next gathering would take place at Longhorn Steak House in Beavercreek at 6 PM, Thursday, November 20th. If you are a lady of Westminster and would enjoy sharing good food and fellowship with your fellow ladies of Westminster, please join us at Longhorn Steak House in November. We guarantee that you will have fun--we wouldn't have it any other way!
