What Is Stewardship?
At Westminster Church, we consider Stewardship a responsibility, an act of worship, and evidence of our faith.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”

Ways To Give
At Westminster, we exercise Stewardship individually through giving of time and money and we exercise Stewardship corporately through the wise and generous use of the gifts given by the congregation.
Give with credit card or by ACH. Give one time or set up a recurring gift.
The offering plate is available at all worship services. Cash and checks are appropriate in the offering plate.
WPC provides any member or regular attender with a box of numbered giving envelopes upon request. Envelopes help to streamline gift processing and recording as well as provide more confidentiality to the giver. Generic envelopes are also available in sanctuary pews.
