Update from Session - Reopening Westminster for Worship

As some of you know, Westminster leadership has been monitoring updates to the COVID-19 virus and considering ways to resume limited in-person worship at some point, that complies with ongoing health recommendations. This week, Session approved a proposal to begin in-person worship on Aug. 2, with restrictions.  Read the letter sent to members regarding reopening.


Online Services Will Continue

Westminster Presbyterian Church plans to live-stream services to our YouTube channel, once we begin in-person worship. In the meantime, we will continue to provide online services. The link to these is on our home page. We recognize not everyone will feel comfortable attending church in August, so we want to make sure you have ways to worship with and stay connected to Westminster!

Loaves & Fishes Hours Changed

Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry has updated its hours to reflect the time needed to distribute food safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. New hours are Tuesdays, from 2 to 4:50 p.m. Bagged food is being distributed outside. All clients need to wear facial masks.

Getting the Art Room Ready

The Presbytery of East Iowa has awarded a $1,500 grant to Westminster for use in the new art room. It will be used to put in a deep well sink. Many have asked, “What kind of art supplies are you seeking to have donated for the new Art Room?” (Located in the Old Kid’s Closet). The following is not an exhausting list at all, but at least a few items:

drawing pencils
watercolor pencils
pastel pencils
permanent ink drawing pens of various sizes
calligraphy pens
pastels and oil pastels
brushes, paints, and paper/canvases for
stamps and ink
pottery tools

Also if you know artists that might have any of these setting around the house/studio and no longer using them, let them know, and see if they may wish to donate any of the above, or other art items as well.

If you would prefer to donate money toward the completion of it, simply make a check out to Westminster and put Art Room on the memo. Thanks!
