New Inquirers Class

On Sunday, February 11th from 12:00 pm-2:30 pm, we will be holding a new members class. This class will explore very briefly what it means to be Presbyterian, hear about all the opportunities available to you at Westminster, as well as what membership means and what is expected. This class does not COMMIT you to becoming a member. Even current members who wish to hear more are welcome. Lunch will be provided. Please contact Donna (242-1824) or Pastor Mark if you would like to come. The class will meet in the Fireside Room which is located in the Northeast corner of the Church.

This class will be led by Pastor Jessica Henks of First Baptist Church and will meet in the Disciple’s Room. This is a 5-week video based study that will have you looking at parenting and moving beyond raising ‘perfect’ children to parenting to have them become more ‘holy’ as a person.

Our 2nd Study will meet in the Fireside Room and be co-led by Pastor Kathleen Whitmore of First United Methodist Church and Pastor Mark Hutton of Westminster Presbyterian Church. Best Selling author, Dallas Willard says, ‘Our focus is not so much on individual actions and decisions as building our personal relationships with our Creator. Come and ‘gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God’s voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of His kingdom.’
