It has truly been exciting to see the efforts of months of planning and praying come to life in the addition of our new Welcome Center. Great thanks to all who have made our capital campaign come to life. This new space will be dedicated to God's glory and use on Sunday, May 20 in between services. On this special day we'll also celebrate our graduates and commission our Senior High for their mission partnership to Puerto Rico in early June.
It is important to note that our Elders and Deacons are excited to use our new space not only for mission inside our walls but also for outreach with groups from outside of Westminster. We also are grateful that our future generations will have this unique space as well as a soon-to-be remodeled Social Hall where decades more of vital ministry can take place.
As you read through the pages of this newsletter, let us rejoice in God's faithfulness and the great responsibility we have to be generous with our prayers, time and money to build God's kingdom. I consider it a great privilege to lead you as one of your Pastors and on the 21st of this month I will begin a 3-month sabbatical. Much has changed since 2014 when I experienced my last sabbatical. It has been a full, abundant and of course exhausting 4 years so I welcome the time off and more importantly I am very thankful for Pastor Dan and his leadership.
I look forward to this beautiful month of May and may your days be full with the goodness of God!
