Westminster presbyterian church has decided to open the sanctuary to 50-percent capacity, which is roughly 75 people.
With the fast approaching Easter holiday, we need to continue to follow Covid-19 guidelines -- masking up, social distancing, and observing capacity guidelines. With that said, we will try to accommodate anyone who wishes to join us for worship. If our capacity is met in the sanctuary, worshipers may be directed to the balcony, or to the Fellowship Hall or Session room where the service may be viewed via closed circuit television.
We can't wait until we are all together again but, Covid-19 numbers are on the rise in Michigan and we need to heed these statistics.
Come Worship With Us!

April 15 Devotional
by, Nikelle Johnson
It can be so easy to get overwhelmed with life. There are groceries to get, bathrooms to clean, and then you realize you are wearing your last pair of clean socks… What is the point of all that chaos? And then God sends reminders…
This time of year my reminder often comes in the form of prepping for VBS. The themes, activities and stories may be geared towards kids, but as adults, we sometimes need to be reminded of the truths that are taught.
This year, the theme is “Treasured: Discovering You’re Priceless to God”. We were created in God’s image, and that makes us priceless. Each day we are reminded of an important point that shows just how much God treasures us! God knows us, hears us, comforts us, forgives us and chooses us. Sometimes I wish there was an easier way to stretch the joy and excitement of VBS throughout the year. Everyday we need to be reminded of our value to God.
Write it on a card and stick it to the mirror of your bathroom where you can be reminded of it daily: “For we are God’s masterpiece. God has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things God planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10, NLT)

"Acts from Scratch"
book by Donald L. Griggs and Paul W. Walaskay
This week — April 15 , 2021 — we will be starting our journey through the Book of Acts. In our first session we will begin with a surface look at the book – when it was written, why it was written, who wrote it, major themes, and as our Bible Study Book (Acts from Scratch) asks – “think about words associated with ‘acts’: activities, actions, and acts.” So what hint does just the title of this Bible Book give us about its focus, content, and themes?

"Well-Known Pastor Struggles With His Own Death"
For years, the Rev. Timothy Keller, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, has counseled and comforted dying people. Not long ago he even wrote a book called, simply, On Death.
But last year, in the midst of the Covid pandemic, he learned he has pancreatic cancer, and he has just written in an essay in The Atlantic about having to confront his own death now, "I spent a few harrowing minutes looking online at the dire survival statistics for pancreatic cancer, and caught a glimpse of On Death on a table nearby. I didn't dare open it to read what I'd written." Click here for more information.

A couple of Sundays ago, one of the selected hymns was “This is my Story”. I felt that it was the perfect title for this particular piece of writing. So…THIS IS MY STORY: Click here for more information.
