2015 Stewardship Campaign
Seeds to Branches is the theme of the 2015 Stewardship campaign. Jesus said that the kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in a field. Just as a seed brings forth a tree, which provides nourishment, shelter and a home, the financial support members pledge will make possible the many meaningful ministries of Westminster. The stewardship committee, chaired by Tom Klein, is asking for a 5% increase in members' 2015 pledge. For more information, click here. To make a pledge, click here.
