Worship

Westminster Presbyterian Church is a safe place for all people to worship regardless of ethnicity, creed, age, cultural background, or sexual orientation.

Worship Services are hel in MackeyAt Westminster we believe that worship is everything we do, both inside and outside the church.  The worship life of our church is defined by our calling to social justice, peacemaking, and our Presbyterian heritage.  The focus of our worship services is to offer our praise to God and to affirm our calling in Christ's name to service and mission.  By design, our worship style is more informal than formal, and we seek to worship in a relaxed and casual atmosphere, focusing on mission and social justice.  This is reflected in our worship space, Mackey Hall, which is a multi-functional building that is used for many purposes during the week by the larger Wooster community and The College of Wooster.  Comminion cups are shared
Our worship usually includes lay leaders of all ages who help guide the liturgy, congregational singing, reading of Scripture, and offering of prayers. Our sermons seek to relate the Gospel to issues and needs in contemporary life. We celebrate the two sacraments embraced in the Protestant tradition, baptism and Communion, which is shared on the first Sunday of each month. 

Children in worship

Children participate in WorshipAt Westminster, we welcome children in worship; in addition, the Nursery Room is available for parents' or grandparents' convenience, and the ushers are always available to assist you.  Activity pages for children can be found in the bulletin basket as you enter Mackey Hall.  We always look for new ways to involve children in worship.  On most Sundays you will see the children participating in the collection of the offering, playing percussion instruments for our hymns, or sharing in the Joys and Concerns of our Congregation.  Our children also lead worship a couple times a year.


Music

Our church's worship, mission focus, and fellowship life are all enhanced by our  music ministry that includesMusic in worship an adult choir (consisting of both members and students of The College of Wooster), children's participation in music, and numerous guest musicians, especially from The College of Wooster.  Our congregational singing includes both traditional and contemporary hymns that give expression to our passion for justice for all of God's creation.

Our volunteer adult choir practices on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.. We invite those who enjoy singing to speak with our Director of Music, Roseanne Rohr, about joining the choir or sharing musical gifts during our worship services.
