World Communion Sunday – October 1, 2017
October 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Welcome to Westminster Church! We are a family of Christians gathered from many traditions and neighborhoods, worshiping here with the goal of connecting faith and life. If you are a visitor, we pray you will feel welcome and blessed by our worship. We invite you to consider making Westminster your church home. Children are welcome in worship here. A nursery is available during the entire service.
World Communion Sunday is a celebration observed by several Christian denominations, taking place on the first Sunday of every October, that promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. The tradition was begun in 1934 by Rev. Dr. Hugh Thomson Kerr who ministered in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh. By 1936 the observance had spread to several other denominations, and by 1940 the National Council of Churches began to promote it to Christian churches worldwide. Dr. Kerr is also the author of the hymn “God of Our Life” which is one of our hymns this morning. We will have one service on October 1 at 11:00 am. We hope you will join us!
