Westminister Chimes - July
Westminster ChimesJuly 2014
Dear Friends in Christ,
I think that you would agree with me, that our Church and grounds have never looked better. The view from the street is inviting.
Unfortunately, building and grounds do not make a Church, God’s people do. What can (should) we be doing?
Have a spiritual focus on prayer. Activities within a Church are important, but they can crowd out the truly important elements of spiritual formation. Determination to communicate with God distinguishes a church from other important community organizations. No other ingredient adequately substitutes for a prayer focus.
Creating an atmosphere of love and caring. Churches used to be defined by doctrinal statements. These are important but are no substitute for a genuine caring and loving atmosphere that dares to say to stranger and friend alike, you are important-you are a child of God. These days, people look for a caring place, not just a teaching space.
Pray for our mission and together let us live our purpose “to love one another, even as God in Christ has loved us.”
Yours in Christ,
Remembering Your Church In Your Last Will and Testament
Your final will speaks to persons or organizations that you found important during your lifetime. In this way your will becomes a lasting statement of your faith.
We are grateful that in recent years many of our members have remembered Westminster in their wills. Because of their thoughtfulness many projects of lasting significance have been accomplished which otherwise would not have been possible.
Due to their generosity these projects were made possible:
1. New pulpit furniture for the sanctuary.
2. A magnificent Kawai grand piano and Roger Organ.
3. Total renovation of the Pastor’s and Secretary’s offices
4. The Memorial Garden
5. Resurfacing and expansion of the parking areas
6. New Carpet in the Fellowship Hall
7. New sound system in the sanctuary with DVD capabilities
8. Underwriting of special programs for the Church
9. The Renovation of the Fellowship Hall
10. Creation of the Choir and The Gathering Room.
Additionally, 10% of all bequests were designated for mission causes.
If you have not done so, please consider Westminster in your will remembering the words of Scripture:
“Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, from henceforth yea saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them. Rev. 14:13
