Choir RehearsalPurple-music-notes 2
Every Thursday
6:30 PM, Sanctuary

Join the choir.  Rehearsals are Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00 PM and Sunday mornings at 9:15.  All  rehearsals take place in the Sanctuary.  Sing your way through Reformation Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

You will discover that being a choir member not only provides you the opportunity to sing with a group that loves to sing, but you are also part of a new small group that encourages and cares about one another and the community!

Table Games
1st & 3rd Wednesdays
3:00 to 4:30 PM
Harris House

Bob and Jackie Petersen continue hosting table games at the Harris House the first and third Wednesday of each month, 3 to 5 PM.  Contact them if you are interested.  

Generation Xers are hankering for a return to more social, face-to-face gaming experiences. The same geeky camaraderie felt when gathered around a television or shooting each other in a video game, but without the time sync of the internet.

That’s where board games come in.  A board game provides the same social interaction that the Generation Xers crave, along with the kind of gaming escapism that they might have gotten from the internet, but wrapped up in packages that can be played in an evening, with human expressions and real time conversation. 

Millennials now embrace table games and it is clearly a welcome all-American past time!  Get on board, table games are now mainstream America!

Westminster Sound System

Many of us know we want a new sound system.  2017-Brauner-DVD David has heard many of us express concern about the deteriorating sound system in our sanctuary.  Now we have a  way to remedy that!  Support our new sound system while you enjoy inspirational songs;  purchase David Brauner's new release, "No Man's Land." The DVD's are available in the church office for $10.00.
All sale proceeds go directly into the fund for the new Sound System.

Time to fall back!  November 5, at 12:00 AM Daylight Savings time ends.
