We show our love for God by serving those in need within our community and throughout the world.

We volunteer to help others, to experience new things, to meet new people and develop relationships.

We always welcome volunteers to: usher, sing in the choir, help with food and hospitality, or help with children and youth programs. Do what you are good at and what you love to do. To learn more and to find the opportunity that fulfills your need for involvement and commitment, please contact Jan Baumann, volunteer coordinator, at baumann@westminster-church.org or 412-835-6630x205.
