Let’s celebrate the end of the school year together! Our church-wide picnic will be held at Tiffany Park in Bryan on May 21 from 4-7pm, with dinner served at 5:30. Bring enough fried chicken for your family + a few Aggies, and last names A-M bring a finger food sweet (such as watermelon, brownies or cookies); last names N-Z bring a finger food side (such as veggie tray, chips, or corn on the cob). The park facilities offer a basketball court, playgrounds, and a splash pad. You’ll want to bring camp chairs for additional seating.
Join us to celebrate God’s grace in the lives of our graduating high school seniors! We will be recognizing Claire Franklin and Elizabeth Krajca in the Fellowship Hall, 6:30-8pm on May 25, with a dessert reception to follow. All are invited!

Senior Spotlight: Elizabeth Krajca

Elizabeth Krajca has attended Westminster her entire life, and was even baptized by Pastor Wade. Through her time in school, she has been homeschooled along with her three brothers. As the oldest of four and the only girl, growing up was never dull! Not only has Elizabeth excelled in her academic pursuits, she has also participated on three different swim teams during high school and is a four-year letterman. She has spent time in WPC's youth choir, has volunteered with VBS, and is thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the church where she's grown up. After graduation, Elizabeth will be attending Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, where she has a roster spot on the women’s swim team. She looks forward to pursuing a degree in kinesiology so that she can then attend Physical Therapy school to become a physical therapist.  Through high school, Elizabeth has been encouraged by Jeremiah 29:11, being reminded of the fact that God has a plan for her future that is for her good.
Westminster Family: Your elders invite you to attend a town hall meeting during which they will offer a preview of the PCA's upcoming General Assembly, and an update on life and ministry at WPC. Pastor Wade will walk you through the overtures that will be discussed at GA, and give a broad overview of the issues that face our denomination. The elders will also present a mid-year financial report. Meeting topics will be presented each one in turn, allowing for a short time of question and answer after each report. The discussion will be held during our normal Life Groups time, on Sunday, May 29.
This summer, the Special Events team will be throwing two get-togethers in the courtyard at Westminster! On June 29 and July 27, we plan to gather for evenings of picnic / food trucks, live music, games for the kids, and fellowship. This is a great way to introduce your friends to life at Westminster. See you in the courtyard! (If you would like to join the Special Events team to help plan this event, contact Jessica.)

Photos from Uganda!

Our Heads Hearts & Hands team from Westminster is back home, safe and sound. Thank you for your prayers while they were gone. A few photos to give you a glimpse of clinic days:
A waiting room tent with spots for 100; people are queuing up to wait in the tent as a rainstorm approaches. It was monsoon season in Uganda, and we had rain every day that we were there.
Waiting in line for drugs from our pharmacy; waiting in line for an ultrasound scan. Our clinic also offered ophthalmology, dental care, TB screening, cervical cancer screening, COVID vaccines, spiritual counseling, HIV and malaria testing as well as doctor care.

We were often reminded of Jesus' compassion for the multitudes in great need, who were "like sheep without a shepherd." Many of our patients walk to our clinic from the Zana slum, and our care for them will be the only medical care they receive until we come back in a year.
A quick meeting with some of our Ugandan counterparts: Chris and Mike are on the H3-US board, Rodgers and Kennedy are on the H3-Uganda board, and Shawnita is a law student who is receiving an H3 scholarship to attend school. We are so thankful for Westminster's investment in the lives of these people. Your commitment is bearing fruit!
Mabel (in the center) is our H3 in-country coordinating assistant. She works with the people from our clinics who need continuing care throughout the year.
Some of our continuing-care patients came to clinic to express their thanks for H3's support. We purchase medicines and work with local hospitals to provide operations, offer spiritual counseling, and job and skills training. During the COVID lockdowns, we provided food to these people as well.
Austin and Jessica ham it up with Denise. Denise is the 15-year-old that our Westminster VBS kids sent to school! She came to volunteer with our clinic every day.
Mumma Linda passes out treats to our volunteers on the last day of clinic. We had the most volunteers we have ever had - nearly 100! Many of them were patients in past clinics, or members of New City and Zana churches. The treats were donated and packed by Westminster women at the Ice Spring Social, and were MUCH appreciated. Thank you!
Our team experienced quality "together time" in the van. ;)
