Welcome to Westminster

Welcome to Westminster Presbyterian Church, an inclusive community of loving relationships.

We are a family of faith committed to living out Jesus’ transformative love in our lives and community – to serving as Christ leads us.

Located in Topeka, Kansas at 13th & Boswell, we are 4 blocks north of Washburn University.

ALL are welcome here with love in Christ’s name.

UPCOMING EVENTS!!

It will soon be October! It has finally cooled off – the cool early morning temperatures and pleasant days are wonderful. The first Sunday in October,  the 7th, is World Communion Sunday. We will celebrate it with communion breads representing places and people in the world who especially need our prayers; Puerto Rico, the Carolina Coast, the West Coast fires, earthquakes and human violence in many parts of the world have left people devastated and without resources. We will pray for their recovery, physically, emotionally and spiritually  on Sunday the 7th. We are encouraged to check the Presbyterian Disaster website to see what else we can do to help.

Our Communion Offering in October goes to Los Talpetates in El Salvador. The money we raise goes toward a scholarship to help a high school student from that community continue his education. Students must leave their village and go into a large town to complete high school and they need financial assistance to afford this. Our giving helps a student finish school and enhances that person’s ability to help their entire community move ahead.

PC(USA) has recognized Westminster as  a Hunger Action Covenant Church.  As a church committed to eliminating hunger and the effects of hunger in our own neighborhood, communities and around the world, we are asked to make a covenant, as God’s children, to alleviate hunger where we find it while we work on eradicating deeply rooted causes of hunger.

On October 25th the Presbytery of Northern Kansas Presbyterian Women are holding their meeting in Topeka at Westminster. Recently we have attended these meetings in Elsworth and Beloit, Manhattan and Junction City. Now the meeting will be here, in our church. The last time we hosted this gathering was April 24, 2014. We are delighted it is our turn again. All church women are welcome, whether active in PW or not; it is always an interesting meeting and we hope for a good turn-out.

Church Community

Church community has lots of meanings. It can mean “those who attend church here” but we like to imagine it more broadly than that. We think of our church community as the neighborhood we live in, the town we are a part of, all who come to events here, all we are able to serve when we go out into the mission field, which starts, as they say, at the church’s front door. 

Christian Education

An important part of life in our church is ongoing learning. In the drop-downs for this heading you can learn about Sunday School opportunities for children and adults. Classes meet at 9:00 on Sunday morning – or if you are an older teen, 9:30 am.
