At Westminster, we profess the historic Christian faith in God, incarnate in Jesus Christ for our salvation and ever at work in human history in the Holy Spirit. Living in a covenant of grace under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we participate in the first fruits of God's coming reign and pray in hope for its full realization on earth as in heaven.
Where we come from
Sixty-eight years ago on January 13, 1952, a mere eleven people joined together at the Henry W. Grady School to give birth to our church. With nothing more than a hope for the future, their committed stewardship in God’s Kingdom gave rise to the buildings and infrastructure that is our church home today.
Where we're headed
To lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating environments that equip people to Love God, Make Friends, and Serve Others.
What this means for you
Westminster United Methodist Church is located in the Galleria/Uptown area of Houston, Tx at the corner of San Felipe and Bering Drive and offers two Sunday worship experiences. Contemporary Service called Encounter at 9:05 and Traditional Service at 11:05.
Our 9:05 a.m. Contemporary worship service, held in our Fellowship Hall, is led by the Westminster Praise Team and features favorite praise songs and dynamic multimedia combined with an uplifting sermon to help members and guests grow in their daily walk with God.
Our 11:05 a.m. worship service offers a Traditional Methodist liturgy, complete with traditional hymns, scripture, psalm and gospel readings, prayers and an inspiring sermon. Communion is served the first Sunday of each month. The Traditional Service is held in our Sanctuary.
What's it like to visit? You will be greeted with a warm smile by friendly people just like you. Ushers are available to assist you with any questions you may have. You will not be asked to stand or made to feel "on the spot" at any time. We would love to keep in touch with you so invite you so sign in on the registration pad. Following worship, a volunteer will give you a welcome packet and they can also answer any questions you might have. Our Welcome Tables are located in the Narthex, just outside the sanctuary doors, and at a table in Fellowship Hall. Both our Contemporary and Traditional Services usually last one hour followed by fellowship in our Memorial Area. What time should I come? We have two services each Sunday. Our Contemporary Service is at 9:05 a.m. and meets in the Fellowship Hall, and our Traditional Service begins at 11:05 a.m. and meets in the Sanctuary. Sunday Morning Studies for all ages starts at 10:05 a.m.
What should I wear? Most people dress casually on Sunday mornings and some like to dress up, so you’ll see everything from jeans to suits at Westminster!
What about my kids? Children are welcome in both worship services and have a time in the service for their own Children's Lesson. After the children's lesson they can go to Sunday School or remain with their parents for all of the worship service. For infants we offer childcare during both services and Sunday Morning Studies in room A-101. We have a secure check-in system for all our childcare. For more about this go to our Children's page.
You may also sign your children in at Room A-100 before worship services, where our Children's Director will guide you to the age-appropriate classroom and answer any questions you might have. About 15 minutes after worship has begun, volunteers bring the children into the sanctuary to participate in the "Children's Sermon" with our Pastor. Immediately following that time, they will leave to attend Sunday School.
Where can I find the nursery? Loving childcare is provided for babies in room A-101.
