2017-Mark-Fisher 2The purpose of this concert is to raise funds for our park and grounds.  Mark Fisher, a Point Loma celebrity will provide music.  Marilyn Thoman and her committee will have food and drinks available for purchase from our newly renamed.
Mark Fisher has established himself as a dominate force in the classic rock community.  His energetic arrangements from the 60s and 70s are welcomed by many as some of the best rock in the county. 

Mark has a quick improvisational style that captivates his audience as he takes them on a musical journey through the decades!

Nearly every Sunday we are blessed to hear original music with David Brauner and our Awakening Singers.

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.

Morning Prayer


Our Westminster prayer team meets every Thursday morning at 7:30 AM in the Theatre Lobby.  Bring a cup of coffee and enjoy fellowship and prayer!

Prayer is talking to God. It’s the simple opening of one’s heart to our father in Heaven. It’s coming to Him and telling Him everything in our hearts. God Himself asks us to pray.

Westminster Chancel Choir
Rehearsal Season begins
Thursday, September 7th @ 6:30 PM
in the Sanctuar

The choir brings to the worship experience a richness to the life of the Church and to our worship experience. Across the country church worship is changing and many sanctuaries look les like sacred spaces and more like black box theatres and scaffolding.

Music and the traditional choir offer many benefits to individuals as well as to the entire church body.  Among the many benefits are:
Opportunity for involvement.  The church ministry is only as effective as people who choose to get involved!  

More next week! 

 Exodus 15:1-3 (NRSV)Gods-promises

"Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:

‘I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
   horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.
 The Lord is my strength and my might,
   and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
   my father’s God, and I will exalt him. 

The Lord is a warrior;
   the Lord is his name."
