In-Person Worship Services
At long last, in-person services have resumed at Westminster. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED - either by using the on-line sign-up tool, or by calling the office between the hours of 10AM-Noon, Monday - Thursday. (503) 364-3327.
You may cancel your reservation for in-person worship until Noon on Friday. After that, we will not be able to process cancellations. We understand "life happens", and if for any reason you feel unwell on Sunday morning, please do not come to church. Stay home and enjoy the streamed service instead.
BIG ISSUES: Local Focus

Congregational Meeting - April 25th
We hereby announce that a VERY BRIEF BUT IMPORTANT congregational meeting will be held via Zoom at 11:45 on April 25 for the purpose of electing our church officers including Deacons, Elders and Nominating Committee members.
We will vote and then congratulate these fine dedicated members who have agreed to accept leadership roles to guide us into the unknown of our future. We have set this time to allow anyone attending any service that day to be able to join us.
You are welcome to join us via any mobile device or computer with your cameras on or off, so if you’re still in your pajamas, we’ll never know! If your camera is off, just be sure you know how to make your vote known using the “reactions” button.
So put it on your calendars: April 25 at 11:45 via Zoom. You will finish the worship service and then log onto the Zoom meeting. It will be truly short…so don’t come late or you might miss it! The link will be sent to you in an e-mail as well as being posted on the church website.
Caring for Creation -
A Month of Exploring God's
From March 21st, United Nations Water Day, through National Earth Day on April 22, we will celebrate God's awe-fill creation with a variety of activities for you and your family.
There will be Big Issues: Local Impact presentations on 3/21 and 4/18 addressing Salem’s water system and healthy soils, featuring our city councilor Chris Hoy; a new bulletin board showing water resources; children and family activities on this website; reflective readings and a suggested monthly book read ("Riverwalking" by Kathleen Dean Moore); and a youth tree planting. We will even have drawings for water and energy conservation gifts!
Annual Youth Geranium Sale
The youth are so excited to offer Egan Garden's geraniums to our congregation and friends again this year! Presales have now closed but we will have a limited number of flowers for sale on Sunday morning, May 2nd. Flowers can be picked up on May 2nd from 9-11:30 AM
See you then!
