Ways to get involved:

  • Become a mentor

  • Volunteer in the garden (Spring through Fall)

  • Purchase garden produce and plants

  • Provide transportation

Coalition Against Poverty in Suffolk

CAPS is currently recruiting an Administrator/Bookkeeper as a paid staff position for approximately 15 hours/week. More details can be found on their website, along with the application.

CAPS is also always looking for handymen who can help our neighbors with repair needs. If you have any furniture or household goods that you can donate as well please feel free to contact the office! We often try to assist individuals who were experiencing homelessness and have recently secured housing but need furnishings to make it a home!

Night Stay Program

Each winter we join with other churches in Suffolk to provide shelter for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. It takes a lot of volunteers to assist with transportation, provide meals, and stay with our guests. Westminster will host again in the 2018-2019 winter, please check back to see how you can serve.

Local Missions

We seek out creative ways to involve Westminster in bringing renewal by means of personal conversion and social shalom. We partner with several ministries in our community to serve our neighbors in a variety of ways.

Contact the Missions Pastor, Brett Carl, to see how you can help contribute to any of our partners.
