Offering: Here at Westminster, we share our plate 50/50 with an organization whose mission aligns with our values.  Our Summer Share the Plate recipient is Plan International USA.  Plan International USA is a girls’ rights organization. Their aim is to create a more equal world by transforming the lives of 100 million girls around the world so that they are safe, educated and economically empowered. They clear the barriers that keep girls and young women from reaching their full potential.

The other half of the collection will be used to fund the work of our congregation here at Westminster.  A link is being posted in the chat for those who would like to give.  

The offering will now be given, and received, with gratitude. To donate go to:
