Christmas Eve at Westminster

This service is designed as a family service, but all are invited.  Children are encouraged to come to the worship service dressed as their favorite character from the Christmas story.  Baby dolls are welcome to come as baby Jesus, and stuffed lambs, cows, and other animals are encouraged to come to decorate the stable.  Extra costumes will be available in the Narthex before the service.  The nursery will be available for our tiniest members.  Following worship, parents are welcome to photograph children at the manger, and everyone is invited to go to Fellowship Hall for a birthday party for Jesus.

Worship at Westminster

Westminster is committed to expressing our love of God through inspirational worship in the Reformed tradition – worship that challenges the mind, touches the heart, and lifts the spirit.

WorshipVisitors are welcomed graciously, and frequently tell us the beauty and grandeur of the Sanctuary and meaningfulness of the service awe them.

Worship is Westminster’s heart. The tone of our worship is formal and traditional yet also friendly and winsome. (No electric guitars, PowerPoint sermons or projection screens grace our neo-gothic cathedral!)

Music is an important part of any Westminster worship service - from our many choirs, our magnificent organ with its 7,000 pipes and the congregation’s participation. We are a singing church!

The order of worship is guided by the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship. 
The Presbyterian Hymnal has been used since its publication. The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible and The Message Bible are read from the lectern. Numerous special, creative services are conducted throughout the liturgical year.  Many regional ecumenical services are also conducted in our Sanctuary.
