In addition to the monthly PWW Women’s Circles and weekly Bible Study and Book Group, Sunday, after worship and fellowship time, adults gather for a conversation based on the morning’s spiritual focus and sermon, with the pastor leading a critical examination of the scripture reading. Often revealing, enlightening, profound, and enjoyable, this is an hour of great spiritual communion for our congregation. We learn from other’s questions while seeking answers to our own, we explore different view-points and hear of personal engagements with the text in our daily lives, and we leave with the knowledge that the hour was very well spent.
About once each month, the Bible study and sermon talkback session is replaced by the Adult Forum, often with speakers from the community leading a discussion on a variety of spiritual, informational, or current events. Recent presentations included First Congregational’s restorative justice project, the Westminster led and neighborhood supported Cherokee Heights Middle School food pantry and discussion of food insecurity in Madison, and shown below the Westminster funded, at $15,000 for three years, Thoreau summer reading program.
