Confirmation of Membership This Morning

Today we celebrate with Jennifer Babcock and Annette Kletke as they confirm their membership into the United Church of Canada and this congregation. Jennifer and Annette, we are delighted you have chosen Westminster to be your church home. We asked each of them to put together a few words of introduction:

  • Jennifer Babcock – I’ve been a member of the United Church my whole life, first practicing at Windsor Park and then Silver Heights United Church. I am a teacher, a student, a daughter, a sister, and an aunty who looks forward to my adventures with Westminster and finding a place in my new church community.
  • Annette Kletke – Annette came to Westminster U. C. about 10 years ago seeking a church choir that would support and enhance her worship Sunday mornings. Not only did she find such a choir but a welcoming church community as well. She currently serves on Inner and Outer Committee.

Welcome Jennifer and Annette!
