Special Messages

The Angelic Voices

CHILDREN WORSHIPPING GOD 2017” is today, Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.!

 The Westminster Presbyterian Church Angelic Voices is a children’s choir that has proven to be a choir of skill and excellence.  This group of disciplined young people has distinguished itself at Westminster and is on its way to being known as young people who serve God by using their talents for  service to God’s people.  In the past, Westminster has had good choirs made of gifted young people.  In more recent years, this significant ministry and opportunity had gone fallow.  So in 2014, the current director, Mrs. Philura Williams, literally brought to life this children’s ministry when she organized the Angelic Voices.  Mrs. Williams proved to us all that talent can be found anywhere; church, the laundry mat, or supermarket, and such talent can be encouraged and cultivated.  The Angelic Voices demonstrates that one is never too young to worship God and display their talent as gifts from God.  The Angelic Voices will bless you, once again, through their concert, “CHILDREN WORSHIPPING GOD 2017” today, Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.  at Westminster Presbyterian Church.  The program will include a “Blessing of the Children” ceremony that will also honor grandparents.
