From the 2014 Christmas Eve service bulletin:


Lord, make me an instrument of your Peace.


Where there is Hatred let me sow Love.

Where there is Injury, let there be Pardon.


Lord, make me an instrument of your Peace.


Where there is Doubt, let there be Faith.

And in Despair, let there be Hope.

Where there is Darkness, Light,

Where there is Sadness, let there be Joy.


Let me be an instrument of your Peace.


O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

To be Consoled as to Console

To be Understood as to Understand,

to be Loved as to love.


For it is in Giving that we Receive

An it is in Pardoning that we are Pardoned.

And it's in Dying that we are Born to Eternal Life.


Amen.

CHRISTMAS EVE THANKS

Many thanks go to our Westminster children and youth for their wonderful Christmas Eve service of lessons and carols. Our Lay Liturgists assisting with this service were -  Wesley, Kiera, Corwin and Will. We also extend our sincere appreciation to the Sunday School leaders Jean, Courtney and David for the many dedicated hours they gave to prepare the children. Bless you all!


Christmas Eve Music: A resounding bravo also goes to Alice D, Eileen H, Karen L, Bev M and Pam V, accompanied and led by Pam M, for their beautiful rendition of "O Come, O Com Immanuel". Pam M also played and sang "O Holy Night" beautifully.


Thank you also to all those who took time from their busy schedules to come to this service to worship, remember the birth of the Christ child and to watch our young people actively involved in serving the Lord through their participation in this service.


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR  to all!

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE

From the January 2015 newsletter - CHILDREN REMEMBERED

This year there were a total of 17 children remembered including: Maureen C, Wesley and Andrew K, Emmaline and Olivia L, Kiera and Katia L, Josie, Hal and Corwin M, Ryley and Nile M, Ben and Abbey M, Jenna M and Will and Addison S.

For a number of years now all of the Westminster children, not just the children involved in Sunday School have received an ornament for their Christmas tree and on it has been printed the church, their name and the date. We hope this will be a great memory and keepsake for them in the future.

From the January 2015 newsletter - A CHRISTMAS EVE TRADITION

For many years the Sunday School children have received a gift bag with some fruit and candy and a little party after their Christmas program. Walter Dittmar always thought this was so very special when he was a young boy and wanted it to always continue, which he and his wife Mary did for many years. After Walter's passing, Mary continued this tradition for over twenty years until her passing in 2013. Memorial money from her funeral was set aside to continue the tradition of providing the Sunday School children with a gift bag at Christmas after their program.

Our thanks go to Karen and Brian L for carrying on this tradition!
