Westwood First Presbyterian Church demonstrates the transforming love of God in our community and around the world through local ministries, as well as support for community groups and national and international missions. The Mission Committee is always looking for opportunities to involve members and friends in meaningful mission and ministry. An annual Mission Fair in November highlights a number of these and allows individuals to shop for alternative Christmas gifts in the form of donations.
For information about any of these ministries and missions, or to find out how to get involved, contact the church office and you will be put in touch with a member of our Mission Committee.
The third Thursday evening of each month our doors are open, or we gather outside, for a free meal served to all. Volunteers set-up, cook, welcome, join in conversation and clean-up. Anyone who shows is fed a wonderful meal between 5:30 – 6:30! Come, join in the FFD. Call us for contacts.
Each October our members participate in this special walk to alleviate hunger. Contributions are distributed between national and local concerns. This is also done on Souperbowl Sunday when our youth collect change tossed into soup pots!
