Serve Globally

Put Your Faith into Action!

Christ commanded his followers to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe it is essential to the life of faith to reach out with compassion to those in need, to seek justice for all people, and to work for peace in our world. Through our Church in the World Committee, we provide opportunities for serving others globally.

The following ministries are supported by Westminster. If you would like more information about any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact the church office by phone or send your request by email to Mission Info.
