Worship Schedule

Worship at Westminster

Westminster offers two worship services each Sunday morning. The 8:30 a.m. service and the 11:00 a.m. service meet in the Sanctuary, with Sunday school at 9:45 a.m. Sunday School listings for all ages can be found under the "Grow Your Faith" tab of the menu.

 

Children's Worship 
We welcome all children to worship and expect that when children are in 1st grade they will begin to worship regularly with their families. WORSHIP BAGS, located in baskets just outside the sanctuary doors are available for younger and older elementary children and contain a children's bulletin for the day along with other helpful items.

Children's Communion
In the PC (U.S.A.) children are welcome at the Lord's Table! In order that children might have a richer understanding of Communion, Westminster offers a special class called "Instructed Communion to 1st graders and their families. This is a two-hour self-directed learning center event on a Sunday afternoon followed by a shared meal. To learn more about this event and its next scheduled date email smaness@nashvillewpc.org.

Children's Sabbath
Celebrated on the third Sunday of October each year. Elementary-aged children and the children's choirs lead a worship service that celebrates the gifts of our children and lifts up the needs of children who are at risk in our country and around the world. This service is held in conjunction with similar services celebrated by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim congregations.

Children's Christmas Eve Service
The 2:00 p.m. service celebrates young children and their families through the presentation of a Nativity play performed by the 5th graders and children's choirs. Children are invited to bring canned food for Second Harvest Food Bank to present at the manger as their offering. Nursery care for infants and young toddlers is offered at both the 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. services.

Palm Sunday
At both the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services children participate in the palm processional and the children's choirs sing.

Easter
Children are invited to present their One Great Hour of Sharing banks during the offering during any of the three morning services (7:30 a.m., 9:15 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.).  Sunday School classes do not meet on Easter Sunday.

 Theology of Baptism

   Click here for the Baptism brochure

 The body of Christ is one, and Baptism is the bond of unity in Christ. As they are united with Christ through faith, Baptism unites the people of God with each other and with the church of every time and place. Barriers of race, gender, status, and age are to be transcended. Barriers of nationality, history, and practice are to be overcome. (W-2.3005)

Both believers and their children are included in God's covenant love. Baptism, whether administered to those who profess their faith or to those presented for Baptism as children, is one and the same Sacrament. The Baptism of children witnesses to the truth that God's love claims people before they are able to respond in faith. (Book of Order W-2.3008)

"The resurrection is a central doctrine of the Christian faith and shapes our attitudes and responses to the event of death. Death brings loss, sorrow and grief to all.  In the face of death, Christians affirm with tears and joy the hope of the Gospel.  Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation, but are sustained by the power of the Spirit and the community of faith. The church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve. "  (Directory of worship)
