We need your help again!

Our thanks to all of you who volunteered to help as Greeters at the Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day services. And now we’re asking for your help again!

A Westminster Christmas

2016-wreath-1What does the Christmas season mean at Westminster? Busyness!

My planning happens in July or August, and means I’m living the Christmas season long before most people even think about Thanksgiving.
