Ash Wednesday Service

6:30 PM,  in the Sanctuary

 Make Lent a special season and join this study now.  Also plan to attend the Ash Wednesday Service at 6:30 PM on February 14th in the Sanctuary.

Pastor Megan's

Installation Service

Saturday, March 3rd,

10 AM, in the Sanctuary


The Pastor Installation Service is a time of rejoicing together in God’s goodness: It provides a place of ministry and the church with a shepherd. During the Pastor’s Installation Service we can reflect on our responsibility to partner together and with our Pastor for the good of the gospel.

The Installation will emphasize the congregational responsibility of how important it is for the church to be the church—to take the Word and membership seriously. This provides each of us time to explore the relationship between the church and the pastor.

We will have this wonderful service to reflect on God’s providence in bringing Reverend Megan Cochran and her family to Westminster and Point Loma.  All are encouraged to meet her and her family and come back to Westminster services and events to learn more about her, our new Pastor and spiritual leader.  February 23 we will participate laying the foundation for this Westminster Ministry.

Thursday 7:30 AM
Morning Prayer 
in the lobby

Prayer Team continues to meet each Thursday at 7:30 AM.

Take time each Thursday morning to be with friends, to be listening to God, to be in prayer and with warm coffee.  Now that is giving yourself a precious gift! 

Prayer does make a difference; when more than one pray together it is powerful. 

Mark 9:7-8 (NRSV)       


Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!’ Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus."
