Outreach Ministries

Westminster reaches out to
the community, the city, and to the world.

Some of our outreach ministries and partnerships include:

Members and friends of Westminster serve as mentors for children at Bruce Shulkey Elementary School through the Kids Hope USA program. Working alongside the administration and teachers at Bruce Shulkey, mentors are paired with one student and asked to meet with that child for one hour, once a week. The goal of the program is to provide loving and caring friendship for the students. Mentors do a number of activities with their students including reading, playing games, joining in on classroom activities or even playing games during P.E. The program has helped create a wonderful connection and relationship between the church and the students, faculty, and administration of Bruce Shulkey.

Christian Community Assistance

Christian Community Assistance is an association of churches in the southwest part of Fort Worth that provides emergency food, clothing, counseling and other types of assistance to needy families in our area. Westminster provides volunteers and collects food and other items on a regular basis.

 

Habitat for Humanity

Westminster has been a strong supporter of Habitat for Humanity for many years. Friends and members of Westminster are invited each year to honor their loved ones through Mother’s and Father’s Day memorial and in-honor gifts that support Habitat financially. Westminster also joins several Presbyterian churches in the area in the ‘Presbyterian Build’ by providing opportunities to volunteer on Habit building projects.

Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels provides hot, nourishing meals to elderly and disabled persons who are unable to provide meals for themselves. Westminster serves as a distribution point for Meals on Wheels. Several members of our congregation volunteer as both distributors and drivers. In 2014, Westminster became Tarrant County’s largest distribution point.

 

 

Tarrant County Polling Place

Westminster serves as a polling place for Tarrant County. Our visible facility provides entrances into the parking lot from both Trail Lake and Alta Mesa. Handicap accessibility and a large Fellowship Hall make it an ideal location and comfortable location.

Early Learning Place — Pre-SchoolELP Logo clean
Westminster is home to the Early Learning Place, a ministry of the congregation for the community that is dedicated to providing a warm, safe, and loving environment for your Early Learner. The curriculum includes creativity, arts and crafts, music, computers, ABC’s, 123’s and storytime.

 

 

Presbyterian Night Shelter

Westminster supports the shelter with our ‘Pennies for God’ program. The congregation is encouraged to save their pennies (other money gladly accepted) all year long. This money is collected around Christmas time and sent to the shelter.

Early Childhood Intervention

Volunteers in Westminster’s congregation pick a name with its accompanying wish-list, and provide gifts to approximately 30 needy children during the Christmas season.

 

 

Prayer Bears for Cook Children’s Hospital

The congregation of Westminster annually collects stuffed animals for distribution to patients at Cook Children’s Hospital. On a regular basis we receive the names of children at Cook who need our special prayers. These names are placed in a basket in the narthex where the congregation may choose one or more to take home and pray for.
