2022 Stewardship Campaign: We’re All In This Together!
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11
Westminster is a special place. We are creating a kind of community here that is hard to find in the world. We come together from different backgrounds, different cultures, different life experiences, and we declare that we are part of the same cloth, woven together by the love of God.
We're taking big steps! In 2021, we took a big step toward funding our ministry in a way that assures that Westminster will continue to make a difference in the world. We are moving toward using our endowment to maintain and operate our building while funding our living ministry from the ongoing financial support of our living members and other supporters. This diminished reliance on our endowment to enable our ministry allows us as a congregation to be less focused on endowment performance and more focused on each other and our ministry and mission.
What does this mean?
The funds from our endowment will be used to support and maintain our building. By maintaining our endowment, we can rest assured that there are funds to maintain our historic building for many years to come. This is a decision that has a huge, positive impact on our neighborhood.
The living ministry of our church will be funded by the living congregation of our church. That means we will pay our staff and fund our programs based on the pledges we receive from members and friends.
We’re asking you to be an active part of "We’re All In This Together!" It wouldn’t be the same without you! You are a part of our “all” and we want you to be together with us. Not only do we want you to be here with us, whether in-person, online or in spirit, we need every single member, every single friend of our congregation to make a pledge this year. Pledging is an important way of declaring that we believe in our ministry – its mission, its community, and its future

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~ Romans 15:13
“They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.” 1 Timothy 6:18-19
Welcome to myWPC
myWPC provides an additional way for members and guests to support and connect with Westminster Presbyterian Church. Anyone can now make online contributions to the church. Members and regular attenders can review their contact details and see their giving history.
We continue to view giving as an act of worship and don’t want you to think of your offering the same way you think of other payment obligations. At the same time, we recognize this can be done in ways other than by putting cash or a check in the offering basket during a service.
By selecting one of the links below, you’ll have the opportunity to give to the General Church fund or select ministries of the church. In the memo, please add any description to your offering. You may use a debit card or electronic check posted to your bank account.
General Fund -- Pledges and offerings to the general ministry and mission of Westminster
Memorial Fund -- Gifts dedicated to the memory or honor of others
Capital Campaign -- Gifts to support improvements to our sanctuary and church house
African Missions -- Gifts to on-going mission projects in Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone
