Worship @ WPC

A House of Prayer and Praise for People of all Nations

Westminster regularly invites guest pastors to share with us, and tries to include as many members in worship as possible.  Seminary interns also assist us in our worshipping life.  On any given Sunday, you might hear an elder lead us in our call to worship, a seminarian lead us in prayer, a grandparent lead the children's time, a guest pastor preach, and a deacon lead our offering prayer.  Every service concludes with the benediction and a blessing in three languages (English, Spanish, and Xhosa). 

Westminster seeks to present worship in a way that engaging, prayerful, creative, and inviting.  We use what is sometimes called "blended worship"--a mixture of classic hymns, praise worship, and new music. In one service, you might sing a traditional hymn (How Great Thou Art), a children's song, a song of praise (You are My All in All), or a bilingual favorite (Santos, Santos, Santos).  Most visitors say that after a Sunday or two worship seems very familiar to them.

Our Sunday worship includes a time called "?? for the Child in All of Us, where our children learn about and contribute to our worshipping life. 

 One of our traditions is that our children lead us in is the lighting of the Christ candle, something that we began after 9/11.  It is a visible reminder of Christ's light in our lives.
