General Aid & Assistance Missions
Westminster’s Parish Hall hosts the Contact Ministries annual Christmas Distribution, in which over 400 area families are provided with numerous household needs and holiday food gifts.
Get involved: WPC youth participate in the fall Spud Bake fund-raiser, and everyone is invited to purchase baked potatoes for this cause. Funds raised ($1,468 in 2019) purchase gifts to be provided to teens at the Christmas Distribution.
Helpful Emergency Assistance for Living funds are shared by the congregation and distributed to individuals and Contact Ministries for emergency needs. These offerings totaled $3,972 in 2019, and the pace of giving has gone up significantly in 2020, with $26,487 received since the pandemic began.
Get involved: Offerings may be specially designated toward this fund.
Knit 2 Purl 4
This group of knitting enthusiasts gathers weekly at the church to share fellowship and knit numerous items to be donated to newborns, people served by the youth mission, and others. They also sponsor a Mitten Tree during Advent for donations to the community.
Get involved: Anyone who enjoys knitting— or would like to learn— is invited to join in!
