What a beautiful summer season we are having at Westminster! We welcome new members Mary and Jim Boyd, Jan Bailey, Jessie Lynn Allen, and Dan and Christina Lipe into our church family of faith. This coming Sunday, missionaries Larry and Barbara Moir will be our guest in the pulpit. Please make plans to attend worship and the reception immediately following our 10:00 am worship service.

You are cordially invited to a concert of chamber music at Westminster Sunday evening at 7:00 in the sanctuary. Knoxville Symphony Orchestra violinist Ilia Steinschneider and friends will perform music by Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and Telemann, and it promises to be a delightful program. The concert is free. Come hear some great live music and do something nice for your mind, spirit, and ears. We’ll look forward to seeing you there!

We are happy to announce that Buran safely returned from his Tour de Buran 2012. He biked 215 miles for three of his vacation days, raising funds for Family Promise and our Youth program. Many thanks to all of you who prayed for safe travels and supported his efforts financially in this endeavor!
