Outreach & Mission

harakoAt the beginning of Jesus' earthly ministry he called disciples to his side, by saying, "Come and see."
At the end of his earthly ministry, Jesus said to his disciples, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…" The work of the Mission and Evangelism Committee at Westminster is guided by these two statements. We help the congregation fulfill the Great Commission by helping them to "go" and we invite the larger community of Anacortes to examine the person of Jesus by saying, "come and see."

The Mission & Evangelism Committee is responsible for leadership in the planning and implementing of many different facets of "sharing Christ's love in service to others." To that end, we offer many different outreach opportunities. We offer at least one yearly mission trip to serve others both near and far. We support many local Anacortes benevolent agencies-recognizing that many of these organizations are best equipped to offer direct aid to those in need.

Each year, Westminster adopts a missionary whom we can learn from, pray for, and support financially. This way we expand our horizons for how and where God is at work in the world.

In 2012 WPC embarked on a partnership with World Concern to help alleviate poverty in Harako, a village in Chad, Africa

We also support Judy Griffin who works with children in Ghana.  For the lastest update, please watch this video: Ghana Update Feb 2015.
