    Friday, November 27, 2020

    A Zoom Drop-in time for sharing gratitude, hosted by Senior Deacon Peter McKee.

    Come for a few minutes or stay for an hour! The Deacons and Pastor Heather invite everyone who would like to end their week with some good news to log into or call into Zoom and share whatever you feel grateful for. There is no agenda for our time together besides enjoying each other's company and sharing the things that make our hearts sing. Come and hang out with some Westminster friends and leave with a smile on your face.

    Vigil for Racial Justice

    Tuesdays: 12 noon - 1:00 pm (weather permitting)

    Westminster holds a public Vigil for Racial Justice each Tuesday, 12 noon – 1:00 pm, weather permitting on State Street in front of the church. We will meet at 12 noon and hope to stay for 1 hour unless the weather becomes a challenge.

     

    You are invited to join us and pray; hold signs; and witness the need for racial justice in our city, our country, and our world.

     

    A large sign will read VIGIL FOR RACIAL JUSTICE. A leader will start each vigil with prayer. The remainder of the time, participants will stand with signs to pray for justice. Bring a sign along with wording of your choice if you are able. Basically a silent vigil, each person is asked to think carefully about “Why am I doing this,” so if asked by a passerby they can answer.  

     

    If you are able to join us (1 hour or 1/2 hour shift), please click here to respond or email the church office at: office@wpcalbany.org  Leave your name, date(s) you will attend, return phone number and email address.

    Spiritual Practices for Emotional Resilience

    Discussion Group - Wednesday

    Begins Wednesday, November 18th, 7:30 pm
    Continues December 2nd, 16th and 30th

    As the days get shorter, many of us feel the emotional drag that comes from the loss of daylight. The stress of the pandemic and the election and isolation from people we love can be emotionally wearing as well. The Gospels assure us that God is very present to us in times of struggle, but how can we take these words of assurance to heart?

     

    Join Pastor Heather and Emily Hart (a psychologist) as we combine Biblical wisdom with psychological resources to learn how to bridge our emotional and spiritual lives. We will cover a variety of simple practices that will help us live into this season with a measure of inner peace.

    Open to everyone--including friends and family. Please email pastor@wpcalbany.org to sign up or to ask questions.

    Blue Christmas with FOCUS Churches

    Sunday, December 20

    6:00 pm

    Zoom Details are not yet available. Please check back.

    We have experienced unprecedented loss this year. Family and friends have succumbed to death in the pandemic. Thousands have lost economic security; some have lost businesses built over a lifetime. Most of us have lost beloved rhythms of life that enriched us with variety in our activities and with the presence of others. We can also name many losses related to hatred and violence.

     

    Join the FOCUS community for a short time of worship on the longest night of the year. Through scripture, prayer, music and candlelight, we will acknowledge our sorrow and grief and take comfort in knowing that God came and dwelt among us in the midst of hardship.
