Season of Epiphany


"LORD, you have searched me and known me…

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way." 

Psalm 139: 1, 23-24(NASB)


  As the psalmist spoke, God knows us, made us, and leads us.  May we find rest in this knowing and being known.  May we rest, trusting in God who even in fully knowing us as we are is compassionate and calls us to be beloved children  of God.  And out of that being known, resting, and trusting, our doing and lives follow God's everlasting ways of justice, mercy, and lovingkindness. 

  And as we sang this morning, “this little light of mine – I’m going to let it shine”.  Keep on shining as you already do and blessing the world with who you are.

As the United Church of Christ likes to say, 

"No matter who you are, no matter where you are in life's journey, ALL are welcome here!"

Covenant of the Westmoreland United Church 

We the people of the Westmoreland United Church, have gathered together to worship God and to provide spiritual support for one another in our daily lives.  Our common Bond is our belief in God’s love for all and our faith in Jesus Christ.  We believe the Bible is just as meaningful today as when it was first written, and we strive to understand and practice its teaching.

Our mission is to help and support the members of our congregation, the people of our community and the people of the world to live meaningful and fulfilling lives.  We support those things which promote equality, justice and peace according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Our church is a member of the United Church of Christ, working together with them to accomplish those things best done on a broader scale, and using them as a resource as we serve our local community.

We emphasize individual freedom of conscience and respect the beliefs of other people no matter where they are in their faith’s journey.  The Westmoreland United Church accepts all people and excludes none.  We welcome everyone to join us as we live out our faith.


Westmoreland United Church Open and Affirming Covenant 

We declare ourselves to be an open and affirming church that welcomes all God's people.  Regardless of religious beliefs, physical or mental abilities, sexual orientation, or gender identity and expression , we welcome you to join us.  We invite you to worship with us, to be married in our church, to partake of the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, and to fully share in the life and fellowship of our congregation.  We recognize there are differences among us and we believe that we can love alike even though we may not think alike.  We proclaim this statement of welcome and affirmation to all including those who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church and society.
