Garden work day Saturday the 16th from 9:00am-12:00pm. Please join as you are able. As always, there will be weeding and deadheading to do. We may also have a

little extra cleanup to do in the area around where the sign was destroyed. The vehicle and the toppled sign caused some damage to the garden, but it appears that the trees

and shrubs are mostly unharmed, fortunately.


Tower Grove Pride – Join fellow More Light congregations and supporters for the Tower Grove Pride Festival! Sept. 23-24, 2023.

You are invited to sign up for a two-hour slot and share God's love at Tower Grove Pride.  The booth will have games, words of encouragement, stickers, glitter blessings and much more.   Our goal is to always have at least two people at the booth during a shift, but the more the merrier!

So sign up, bring some friends, and celebrate Pride!




Do you have a heart for the history and legacy of Westminster?  The Presbytery history team has shown us the tasks needed to transition from our space and care for our historic property and legacy.  We need people who would be willing to make calls, go through historic documents, pictures, and items.  If you are interested in this work, please reach out to Katie Kaufmann katielkaufmann@gmail.com or Pastor Mark, markmiller@westminsterstl.org.
