Pentecost Sunday

May 20th

The day of Pentecost is noted in the Christian Church as the day on which the Spirit descended upon the apostles, and on which, under Peter's preaching, so many thousands were converted in Jerusalem, see Acts 2.  

This is also one of the seasons where Westminster Presbyterian Church traditionally accepts special offerings to support ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.  We do this because God has blessed us with His holy spirit, with His church, with life and wisdom and spiritual gifts. 

Our special offerings provide one more opportunity to share this good news to our community and to the world.

On May 20th come to Westminster prepared to celebrate the birth of Christ's Church and the blessed ability to give! 

Biblical Criticism Class

Leader: Don Worley
Sundays 11:30 AM -12:30 PM

Who wrote the Bible?
Did Jesus mean to found a "new church"?

Have you ever asked yourself these questions or similar questions about the Bible and what we believe as Christians? Join Don Worley in this weekly class exploring these topics and more related to the field of Biblical Criticism.

The class will be half presentation and half discussion. Come and join us as we explore these important topics. No sign up required.

Office & Preschool Closed 

Monday, May 28th Westminster Presbyterian Church Office and Westminster Presbyterian Preschool will be closed in honor of Memorial Day.

On Memorial Day we honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.  Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.  San Diego
 grew rapidly after 1880 due to development and the establishment of multiple military facilities. Growth was especially rapid during and immediately after World War II.  San Diego remains home to many military families.


The 2018 Flower Chart is now on display in the lobby.  Take time this Sunday volunteer.

Big, full of meat and cheese and slathered in delicious sauce. No restaurant can touch a California Mom’s Enchiladas! 


Dining is “al fresco” so bring a sweater or jacket.  Prepare your favorite "Mom Dish" to share.
