FAITHFUL FOOTSTEPS

posted May 23, 2017, 7:19 AM by Westminster United Church

All volunteers with Westminster United Church, in any capacity, should be annually informed of the church’s abuse and neglect laws.  The United Church protocol is called “Faithful Footsteps”.  We ask all congregation members that also volunteer to visit the following link to stay informed:

CANADIAN TIRE MONEY

posted Oct 2, 2014, 8:41 AM by Westminster United Church   [ updated Sep 8, 2016, 6:58 AM ]

Wallet getting too thick to fold or close?  Have 5¢ and 10¢ bills lying around your house?  Place any Canadian Tire money you would like to donate into the jar above the family drawers.  Our administrator collects it weekly and uses it towards the purchase of small items Westminster requires such as dish soap, batteries, water filters etc.  Every little bit helps!
