September – May (Regular Schedule)

Sanctuary Worship

Sundays, 9 a.m. | Sanctuary

This traditional Presbyterian service includes the reading of scripture and a well-crafted sermon, a message for children, prayers, hymns and choral anthems with organ accompaniment, and instrumental offerings. This service is held in our large, Gothic-style stone sanctuary with beautiful stained glass windows – a setting that evokes wonder and awe, lifts the spirit, and helps our community glorify God. Westminster offers a livestream of the sanctuary service. Go to Watch to view the livestream on Sundays at 9 a.m. or to access the video anytime afterward.

Living Mosaics Worship

Sundays, 11:15 a.m. | Church Lawn or Rodney Chapel*

The Living Mosaics service takes place in a more intimate setting that allows for a variety of creative expression — visual art, diverse musical styles, and more interactive liturgies. This smaller, less formal worship service invites the gathered community to nurture relationships with God and one another. The scripture passage and sermon are the same in the sanctuary and Living Mosaics worship services.

*Weather permitting, the Living Mosaics service will be held in Westminster’s side yard along Clayton Street (the fenced-in area across the sidewalk from the Community Garden) for the beginning of the program year (September, October) and in the spring (May). In cases of inclement weather, we will worship in Rodney Chapel.

Memorial Day Weekend – Labor Day Weekend (Summer Schedule)

Sundays, 9:30 a.m. | Sanctuary

From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, Westminster offers one Sunday morning worship service in the sanctuary. We offer a livestream of the sanctuary service. Go to Watch to view the livestream on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. or to access the video anytime afterward.

Please note that service times are subject to change due to holidays, special events, guest speakers, or congregational meetings. Please check times on our Events page before arriving.

Celebrating the Sacraments

The sacraments are liturgical practices of the church that convey the invisible grace of God through visible signs, namely water, bread and juice. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) recognizes two sacraments, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (or Holy Communion). These were instituted by Jesus during his ministry and both are celebrated in services of public worship.



Baptism is “the sign and seal of our incorporation into Jesus Christ.” In the waters of baptism, God claims us as beloved children and calls us to participate in Christ’s ministry of love, justice, and peace. This sacrament marks the beginning of a lifelong journey. We strive to live into the promises made in baptism by growing in faith and understanding and following Christ in our daily lives.

Presbyterians believe baptism is also a sign of God’s gracious covenant with the Church. Those who pass through the waters of baptism are welcomed into God’s covenant of grace and commissioned for service in the world. Whenever we celebrate this sacrament, the Church also makes a covenant with the newly-baptized; the gathered congregation promises to nurture and support the newest members of the family of faith and to accompany these disciples on their journeys.

Both believers and their children are included in God’s covenant. Therefore, Presbyterians practice both infant and adult baptism.

The Lord’s Supper

While baptism marks the beginning of the journey of faith, the Lord’s Supper sustains believers on the journey. Whenever we gather at table to celebrate this sacrament, we believe the Holy Spirit draws us into Christ’s presence, nourishes us in faith and faithfulness, and strengthens us for service.

Westminster celebrates the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of every month and at occasional special services. All who trust in Christ are welcome to join us at the table of our Lord, regardless of age or understanding. Sometimes we serve communion by intinction, meaning worshipers are invited to come forward, take a piece of bread, and dip it into the cup of grape juice. Other times servers distribute the elements to the seated congregation. No matter how we share the feast, we trust the Spirit uses ordinary gifts of bread and juice to proclaim the extraordinary love of God.

The Lord’s Supper also reminds us of Christ’s call to “feed my sheep” (John 21:17). The abundance Christ offers in and through this sacrament extends beyond the gathered community to all who are hungry. Therefore we rise from the table and go forth to serve God, one another, and our neighbors throughout the world.
