The sign outside our doors says, “Westminster gathers here.” What that means is that our ministry does not just happen at 3900 West End, but we go out into the world sharing the good news and return praising God for what we have seen and heard. Our tithes and offering reflect this understanding. Our needs are both inward and outward. What we receive in terms of monitary gifts might repair a Sanctuary roof, pay a salary or put some new paint on a door. A great deal of it, however, moves forward. Some of it can be measured in Habitat houses, wheelchair ramps or electric bills being paid. A great deal of what we receive is spent on things that cannot be measured. It manifests itself as kindness, hope and grace. Westminster has an amazing ministry. We hope you will be a part of it.
Realizing that all we have incomes from God, pledging is one sign that we put God first in our lives. In the fall of the year, Westminster has a pledge campaign so that we can plan for the next year. Just as we grow in grace, we hope that individuals will take steps to grow in their giving to our congregation.
