Westminster Presbyterian Church, located on the campus of The College of Wooster, is one of three Presbyterian churches in our city. We started as a college church, established in 1874, and have now become a multi-generational congregation with college students, young families and older adults from both the College of Wooster community and the larger local community. We are drawn together by our commitment to creating a faith community of acceptance and working for peace and social justice in God's world. As a small congregation with about 75 people in worship attendance, we value our friendships and celebrate Christ through acts of compassion and participation in global and local causes. Those who join our church typically share our strong sense of social justice and mission to the world and to those in need.
We like to think that our church provides a spiritual home and a "safe" place for those on the campus of the College of Wooster and in the larger Wooster, Wayne & Holmes County communities, including those who have either felt disconnected from traditional Christianity and churches, or who no longer find traditional expressions of Christianity to be compelling for their lives or faith.
