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.

Prior to the combined church service at 10:30 am, the church will be filled with music—from groups, including African Harmony, to soloists to a musical petting zoo for kids and adults.
All are invited to explore the building and learn more about:
• Ways to engage at Westminster
• What’s coming up in Adult Ed
• Social Justice and travel opportunities
• Fellowship groups
• Children and Youth ministries
• And more!
And there will be great food: the popular hot chocolate bar, egg rolls prepared by the parents of Troop 100, mini yogurt parfaits, coffee, tea, fruit and scones. Yum!
Youth (look for them dressed as elevator doormen!) will be on hand to guide the flow through the building.
This festival celebrates the many programs and activities in our Westminster community and importantly, shines a light on how our vibrant church shows love for one another, and how love shapes us and calls us to give deeply of ourselves.
Please note that there will be one combined service at 10:30 am and no Education Hour so that all may participate!Read More
