Westminster Academy Programs

Meets each Wednesday evening to dive deeper into a variety of topics.Westminster Academy is a study opportunity that happens on Wednesday evenings and is primarily an opportunity for members and friends of the congregation to reflect on “faith and fiction.” We are often led in an in-depth discussion of a book by local professors such as Belmont University English Professor, Sue Trout.

Witness At The Cross

Due to copyright law, A.J. Levine’s class cannot be recorded. For more information, please contact Guy Griffith. In Witness at the Cross, Amy-Jill Levine shows how the people at the cross each have distinct roles to play. Each Evangelist presents a distinct picture of the death of Jesus.
