Westminster values and provides opportunities for the spiritual growth and education of all our members.
OVERVIEW OF ADULT EDUCATION EVENTS
We offer monthly or semi-monthly presentations called SOARs (Sunday Opportunities for Adult Renewal). These sessions take place on Sunday mornings at 9:45 and 11:00. These sessions take place on Sunday mornings at 9:45 and 11:00. They encompass a wide range of topics including biblical studies, church history, current issues, other religions, and mission. The presentations draw on expertise from Westminster members as well as guest speakers from the community.
FALL FRENZY kicks off the new school year for the adults in the congregation. It’s a 3-week Sunday evening event which includes a simple meal and fellowship followed by a choice of small group studies or a larger educational session. This format allows for more in-depth exploration of a topic, as well as more personal interaction with the material and other church members. See above for information on this year's events.
THE SATURDAY EXPERIENCE is a half-day mini-retreat focusing on the importance of experiencing and practicing something to learn it well. This retreat generally offers a whole-person educational opportunity with an emphasis on Christian spirituality.
LENTEN EXPLOSION is the spring’s three-week version of Fall Frenzy, to bring us into the season of Lent.
Westminster offers several Bible Studies for our members. Click here for more information.
