Opportunities for spiritual growth in personal discipleship

Sunday mornings at 9:15 am

The Church Called to Mission Sundays, October 5–26, at 9:15am, learn about and respond to our Christian calling to reach out in love. Guest speakers will tell us about local and global efforts. On Servant Sunday, October 26, the entire congregation will learn and worship together through hands-on service.

Proverbs Written by King Solomon and other wise people, this book of timeless wisdom gives advice on friendship, family living, handling money, caring for the poor, discipline, proper speech, trusting God and more. Join us at 9:15 am Sundays in room 32 on the lower level.


Adult classes and small groups present a variety of topics and styles covering areas such as Bible study, discipleship and Christian living, life transitions, Christian theologians and contemporary issues. We encourage open-minded discussion, reflection, prayer and disciplines to establish habits of life-long learning, discernment and action as Christians challenged to be faithful and Christ-centered in the world.

You are welcome to join our planning meetings on the second Monday of the month at 7 PM.


Save the planet, one cup at a time: Bring a coffee mug from home to keep at church. There is a cupboard in the kitchen where you can keep it; when you are finished, just place it in the rack by the dishwasher to be washed for use the next Sunday. Save on waste, save on cost, and feel more at home while at church.

Through the week

Colossians In this New Testament book, Paul clarifies Jesus’ role as sovereign creator, head of the church and reconciler. Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in room 30 on the lower level.

Thursday book group begins discussing Meeting Jesus for the First Time – Again!, by Marcus Borg, Thursday, October 2. Buy a book from Sue Flynn (at a discount) or elsewhere; all are welcome to join us! Meets 1–2:30 pm weekly in the conference room opposite the public office.

In November we’ll read and discuss The Power of Parable: How Fiction by Jesus Became Fiction About Jesus, by John Dominick Crossan. Like Marcus Borg, Crossan, in the 1990s, was a member of the famous Jesus Seminar. In part, its members sought to discern by comparative scholarship and the study of early Christian history which sayings and actions ascribed to Jesus in the gospels were fairly surely Jesus’ and which may have been added later by the gospel writers.

Scattering Seeds Members of our Session and deacon board are reading and discussing the book Scattering Seeds, by Stephen Chapin Garner, and Engage, a PC(USA) church revitalization tool, in consideration of plans for Westminster’s next steps. You’re welcome to read along; Scattering Seeds is available via Amazon and Scribd.

Riverside Community Gathering Set the written word down and live the gospel in this faith-based community outreach. Each week we join approximately 40 people to eat, pray and share our lives. Meets Wednesdays, 4:30–5:45 pm, at First Presbyterian Church, 300 N. Washington St., Ypsilanti. Please contact David Hammond for more information.
