Pastor's Weekly Letter

A Note From Dr. Paul J. Kirbas


It is with mixed emotions that I need to share with you that our Director of Children’s Ministry, Darci McKinnon, has announced her need to resign from her position due to family issues that need her attention. Darci has done a wonderful job building up our children’s ministry, and we will miss her. We will certainly have a hard time filling her shoes, but please be assured that we will do all that we can to make sure this important part of our church continues to blossom. Please also keep Darci and her family in your prayers. Here is a note from her:

Dear Friends

I regretfully inform you that I will be leaving the staff of Westminster Presbyterian after the Fall Festival this Friday. I have had a wonderful experience as a member of your church staff. I want to thank all of you for the many ways you allowed me to minister to your children. This year I have watched the young people of this community laugh, play, pray, wonder, create, grow… (just to name a few). Together, we experimented with new ideas, examined what it means to be a child of God and explored Christian kindness in new ways (again, just to name a few). Thank you for trusting me to lead and nurture your family. I know you have a wonderful future. With Grace & Peace

- Darci McKinnon

On another note, please note that next Sunday is Reformation Sunday, and our Stewardship Season Commitment Sunday. We will have one combined worship service at 10:30 AM in the Central Campus Sanctuary. We invite our whole congregation, from both campuses, to join us for this celebration, and for a special reception following the service.

Now, let us continue to follow the HEART of Generosity. We have learned that He owns everything, and because of that, Everything and Every day is a gift. But knowing these things alone does not get us very far. It’s time to think about the “A.” Action is required!


In God’s Love,


Dr. Paul J. Kirbas
Pastor / Head of Staff
