An engaged, urban partner sharing the good news with a world in need of God’s peace, love, and justice, Westminster has been a telling presence in the city since 1857.
With stirring worship services, beautiful traditions, and a progressive church culture, Westminster is a home for people of all ages and backgrounds to deepen their faith and make a difference in the world. The church offers ministries in adult, children, and youth education; music and the arts; and social justice, with a highly engaged congregation welcoming and caring deeply for all people within and beyond its walls.Read More

Join us for a discussion with Daoud Nassar, Palestinian Christian farmer and Director of the Tent of Nations Project (TON), a peace and education center located on Nassar’s 100-acre farm near Bethlehem. TON is surrounded on three sides by Israeli Settlements and one side by the Palestinian village of Nehalin. With a mission to build bridges of understanding, reconciliation, and peace between people and the land, TON has a sign at the entrance to the farm proclaiming, “We Refuse to Be Enemies.” Nassar will discuss his project, the Israeli army’s recent destruction of more than 1500 fruit-bearing trees on his property, and his pledge to replant the land.
Co-presented by Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Mission and Witness Committee for the Presbytery of the Twin Cities.
