MINISTRY DESCRIPTION

There are endless ways to serve at Westminster. But sometimes, though we want to serve, we aren’t sure where we fit in. Our Ministry Opportunities Volunteer Form may be a useful tool as you try to decide. Westminster’s various ministries are broken down and organized by our church’s commissions, made up of members who volunteer to oversee WPC activities. Please feel free to print the form, ask God to lead you into the right area of service, and fill out and turn it into/email the church office. One of our staff members will contact you with further information!
