There is an old saying from the Midrash (ancient Jewish rabbinical teaching on the Torah): “Circles are better than rows.” The implications of this saying is that our life in God is meant to be life in community and in relationship. We worship a relational God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and who calls us into that divine life, through Jesus’ reconciling and atoning work on the cross. The Gospel of Mark tells us that Jesus called his disciples so that they could be with Him. We here at Westminster believe that life change happens in the context of relationship with people. As Proverbs (27:17) states: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens his friend.....” and we encourage every member to be in a small group of some kind. Below are several opportunities to become involved, or we encourage you to start a group of your own. The staff at Westminster want to support relational ministry any way we can. If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to either Rev. Leslie Dibble or Dave Reule.
