Church Life & Ministries

Yearly Church Activities

Potlucks - As a church family we enjoy coming together around a common meal in fellowship and thanksgiving.

Vacation Bible School - Every summer we have a Christ centered, Biblically based and fun Vacation Bible School. Our goal is to put substance and fun in learning about Christ. Every VBS ends with Plastering the Pastor a tradition where all the kids have a shaving cream fight against the pastor.

Visiting Shut-ins - The second Sunday of each month a group from our church visits a nearby facility for a short message, singing of hymns and fellowship.

Fall Funfest - Every Fall the church gathers for a Fall Funfest. This is a time of fellowship along with an outdoor potluck dinner with fun and games for the church family and guests.

Pack, Snack & Wrap - A yearly event in conjunction with Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child. In early November the church gathers for an evening of packing shoe boxes that go to underprivileged children all around the world. It is a great way of starting off the Holiday season.

Youth Turkey Bowl - Each year the youth of Westminster take on the youth from Providence Church in Edwardsville in an annual turkey bowl touch football game. The actual turkey bowl trophy now proudly resides with Westminster.

Easter Good Friday Service - This is a sacred service observed each year to honor the sacrifice of our Savior.

Adult Christmas Dinner - An opportunity for the adults in the church to come together and enjoy a good meal, rich fellowship, music and fun in the midst of the Christmas rush.

Caroling in Assisted Living Homes - Each year we enjoy going to various Assisted Living facilities to sing Christmas carols and bring the joy of Christ and Christmas.

Children's Christmas Program - In December the children of our church put on a biblically based children's Christmas program for the congregation and community to enjoy.

Candlelight Christmas Eve - Every Christmas Eve we gather as a church family to celebrate the birth of our Lord.
