There are two ways to connect - in person and on line!  Masks are required for all indoor services and gatherings.

THINGS TO DO IN JANUARY & FEBRUARY ...

 

Saturday, January 14, 2023  - Kids Drum Circle!

On Saturday, January 14th from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., you are invited to our Kids Drum Circle! A drum circle is an activity where people come together in a circle and, led by a facilitator, drum, sing and create music together using a wide range of percussion instruments.

Westchester UMC is excited to offer a family-friendly, kids drum circle from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on second Saturdays of the month.  Our Kids Drum Circles are FREE and engaging and fun for all ages.  The average kid ages are 2 to 10 years old. No reservations needed—just show up!  Drums and percussion provided—no experience required.

Our Second Saturday Kids Drum Circles will be held at the church in the Fellowship Hall. 

While we do monitor the volume, playing drums indoors can have moments of louder volume.  We offer noise reduction headphones for the kids and earplugs.  Children may not be dropped off—parents/guardians must stay with children.  Come and be a part of the fun!

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 - The Gathering

On Wednesday, February 1st at 6:30 p.m., you are invited to “The Gathering.”  Through sacred moments of silence, scripture and music, we have the opportunity to re-set, re-charge and re-focus our awareness of the Divine Presence of God, always where we are at every moment. Quiet your mind, open your spirit and focus your heart on the 1st Wednesday of each month in the calming presence of God and Spirit.  This meditative service is a wonderful way to center yourself for the month ahead.

IN PERSON WORSHIP (masks are required) ...

Sunday Mornings at 10:00 a.m. - In Person Worship

Our worship series, SAD: Spiritual Affective Disorder begins.  Seasonal Affective Disorder happens when a lack of sunlight affects our moods and our abilities to cope effectively.  Spiritual Affective Disorder can also be a condition when we've had prolonged stress and life is disturbingly uncertain.  What if everyday life activities could become spiritual practices - deepening our experience of a meaningful life and helping us shine a light on the "blahs?"  May we discover acts of kindness, acts of observation and gratitude, and simple things like taking a walk, or even getting out of bed in the morning can all lead to a deeper awareness of the divine, and a closer connection with God, while also having a positive impact on mental wellness.

The Gathering at 6:30 p.m. on the First Wednesday of the Month

Through sacred moments of silence, scripture and music, we have the opportunity to re-set, re-charge and re-focus our awareness of the Divine Presence of God, always where we are at every moment. Quiet your mind, open your spirit and focus your heart on the 1st Wednesday of each month in the calming presence of God and Spirit.  This meditative service is a wonderful way to center yourself for the month ahead.  Our next Gathering will be on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. Masks are required.
