The World Is Not As It Should Be.

At Westminster, we seek to embody the love of God as agents of change for the common good.

We want to expand our redemptive imaginations.  

By moving toward other people's needs, we are reorienting our longings for the world to be set right.

 

If you've discovered a solution to a problem that affects millions of other people,

wouldn't you want to tell the world about it? 

We believe that Jesus is the best news for a world that needs hope,

so we are committed to telling others about Him.

As you grow in your faith, we will provide training and encouragement to help you talk about your faith with others without being uncomfortable or threatening. 

With many of your Westminster friends, you will discover that there is no greater joy

than when you tell someone about Jesus, and they decide to follow Him, too.

Aurora Neighborhood Baseball League All Star Lunch Mission

Westminster had the privilege to serve lunch at the ANBL All-Star Game. 

Lunch was provided to all the players, coaches, families, and people

who found themselves at Lebanon Park. 

Over 282 Hot Dog lunches were served, and nearly 400 bottles of water were distributed

at no cost to anyone in attendance. 

Westminster was humbled to provide such a great blessing to these fantastic kids, coaches,

and their friends and families. 

We were blessed to be just a tiny part of this beautiful day.

 

Thank you to the 25 WPC servants who helped make this day possible

and our entire congregation for trusting the Witness Team to serve our community.

 

Thanksgiving Basket Mission

Westminster continues our Annual Thanksgiving Basket "Blessing Box" tradition.  Every year, we give back a little of what God has given us to put together a meal for needy families. 

 

We were delighted to welcome some of the McCleery and Nicholson Elementary School staff to help us serve their students this year.  In 24 hours, we delivered a total of 86 boxes.  What an incredible blessing to work with such dedicated teachers.

The Giving Tree

Our beautiful “Giving Tree” can be found just down the hall from the narthex every Christmas. We want to encourage all those who can help brighten Christmas for others. We welcome all that can participate in this incredible ministry.


Placed on the tree are a number of paper ornaments on which a specific item that has been requested will be written. 

 

If you would like to help, we ask that:
You choose an item you want to donate and remove the attached ornaments from the tree. The paper ornament you will take with you to place on the outside of your unwrapped gift. This will enable us to know the contents of the facilities when they are returned to the Church and help us get assistance to the correct family or group.

 

Every year, we donate gifts to local groups such as Wayside Cross, Hesed House, Heifer Int'l, and the Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry, as well as families and friends in need.

 

Rhea Britton leads this ministry.  Seek her out if you want to help.

 

Stamp Ministry

Please join us as we collect canceled stamps for the Alliance Stamp Ministry in Fort Myers, Florida.  The income from the sale of these stamps supports the preparation, publication, and distribution of a Spanish language curriculum for Sunday Schools.  

If you would like to donate, please follow these guidelines:

-Stamps should be cut off, leaving a 1/4 inch edge around the stamps.
-Flag and Bell stamps should not be saved.
-Postcards are welcome. Please save the whole card. Do not just send the stamp. Cutting the stamp off postcards makes them lose their value.
-Old Stamps in albums and foreign and commemorative stamps are especially welcome.

 

Contact Evangelism Deacon John Halsey with any questions.
