A Message from The WPC Congregation
Westminster Means “Visitors Welcome”
Lectionary Reading
Msg Board Archive
We are the congregation – the members, friends, and guests -- of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Belleville IL.  We joyfully worship and praise God whenever we gather.  Whether it’s Sunday School for youth and adults at 9AM, or regular worship at 10:15AM, or a scheduled church activity, we advance in our faith journeys by acknowledging, by learning, and by doing.

We are a small, tight-knit congregation, but we are also a diverse mix of all ages, backgrounds, shapes, and sizes.  We are a caring family – a family in faith – that is a body of support for those seeking spiritual nourishment within and outside our church walls.  And we are a welcoming church, one that reaches to the needy and self-supportive to join us in our mission: to gain enrichment and understanding of God’s purpose for all of us.

We invite you to come and try us on for size.  Our Singles and Couples (SAC) monthly activities blend physical and spiritual fitness in safe and enjoyable ventures.  Our Westminster Youth Fellowship (WYF) gatherings include a meal and programming to provide valuable perspectives and challenges for growth.  Our bible studies focus on modern applications of biblical tenets and traditions.  That’s just for starters.

We also invite you to be more fully involved in the life of the church with your God-given gifts.  Maybe you have a delightful voice to complement our choir.  Maybe you are inherently compassionate as are our Deacons.  Or maybe you are gifted with your witness, or with your vision of community, or with your organizational skills.  Whether it be these gifts, or just a desire to worship, we would be blessed to have you.

We’re in your neighborhood – centrally located at 1419 North 17th St., within a short distance of Fairview Heights, O’Fallon, and Swansea.  Stop in and say hello, and let us make you feel at home.  Westminster means “Visitors Welcome.”

                             Reminder: SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 5th is RALLY DAY
It's here, it's here, it's really here!  RALLY DAY.  Can you believe that summer is almost over and that fall is just around the corner?  Well that can only mean one thing here at Westminster: it's time to start the new Church School curriculum.  This is an exciting time for everyone, from pre-school through adults, to gather in their classrooms and be able to study the Word of the Lord.  You say you haven't been attending Church School?  Well now is the perfect time to start.  Remember that, on September 5th, come to church at 8:30AM to eat breakfast.  Don't be late.  After breakfast will be a time of sharing and activities for all.
