Season of Easter


"In you, O LORD, I seek refuge; do not let me ever be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me…

Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your steadfast love." 

Psalm 31: 1, 16 (NRSV)

 

 The Good News has been, is, and will be experienced and witnessed again and again and shared through the ages.  Jesus of Nazareth was raised from the dead.  Death does not have the final word – God does.  The women who left an emptied tomb, amazed and speechless at what they witnessed, received their voice back and their words spoke truth and hope to so many, for God was still speaking to them and through them to their family and friends and neighbors, and to us, and also through us to others!  

 

Shalom,

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.
