Grow Your Faith
Westminster Presbyterian Church's journey to grow our faith by knowing the Word is lived out in our education ministries, where we strive to create an environment where everyone, from our very youngest to our most mature, can grow in discipleship. We offer a wide variety of options, some on Sunday morning, and others throughout the week. The menu items on the right will help you navigate through these offerings.

Mission of Adult Education
At Westminster Presbyterian Church (WPC), we seek to nurture our members, at all stages of their faith journey, in ways that strengthen biblical, spiritual, and moral foundations and affirm what we believe as Reformed Christians. Throughout the Adult Education program we work to cultivate an environment in which diversity is valued and different opinions are respectfully engaged. Our Sunday morning classes are designed to be communities where members and visitors are invited to join the journey growing deeper in faith and fellowship. Some classes geared more for "age and stage" of life, while others are intentionally intergenerational. During the year, special classes and speakers are arranged for the whole church to experience learning together. All are welcome to become part of what God is doing through the education ministry at Westminster.

Adult Bible Study: An intergenerational group engaging in Bible study that is not focused on the lectionary texts for the morning. Often a teacher will focus on a particular book of the Bible over multiple weeks or look at a theme, such as Jesus' prayers, as a multi-class series. Teachers are drawn from Westminster members, local students and faculty.

Covenant: Begun in the fall of 2006, the Covenant Class is geared especially for parents of Westminster youth and was started as a response to a spoken need on behalf of many of the parents for such a class. It is a community of mutual support, intentional growth, fellowship and service. Many former Pathfinders and Westminster 100's have found a Sunday school class home here.
Families with Children: If you have children birth to 12 years old, come join this group for regular bible focused study and lectures about keeping our families Christ focused in today’s world.
Led by David Simcox, Tricia Hall, Chad and Kady Folk
Murdoch MacLeods: Named for a former pastor who helped lead the congregation to its current location, this class is for men who seek in-depth Bible study, world religions studies, and fellowship.
Led by Eli Richardson
New Member Class: Offered twice a year, this seven-week class allows those interested in learning more about Westminster or those seeking to unite in membership to explore topics such as Reformed Theology, worship, mission and service with members of the staff and lay leaders.

Search: Are you looking for that fellowship group where you might find others who share your concerns and questions? Feel too young for some classes and too old for others? Have questions or concerns about your faith that you're not sure how or where to raise? Search is a small group that, although focused on a theological theme, consists of group discussion and gentle leadership around the theme. Search can often be found at the movie theatre or Starbucks. Enjoy visioncase for the year ahead.
