The Journey Home
Christian Formation 2022-2023
Our pandemic separation from one another finds us in our current state of exile – and causes us to begin again by creating something new. The Journey Home is not merely a return to something familiar and how it all “once was” - it will allow us to familiarize ourselves again with the beloved community, the marking of sacred time, and the joy of serving the world in God’s name. The Journey Home reminds us that God is still speaking to us, and it is our call to delight in it.
2024 Interfaith Trip to Israel
February 18-28, 2024
Pastor Larry Hayward and Rabbi Jack Moline lead their fourth trip together in 2024! Join us on a nine-day guided tour from the Golan Heights to the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem. Click below for complete travel itinerary, package information, and registration. There is a discounted rate for deposits received by February 18, 2023.
Old and New Testament Classes
Every year from September-April, Larry Hayward leads these classes on the Old and New Testament. In each class, you will read the respective Testament, learning the basic content of the book and exploring the text in detail. Together with the class, you'll reflect on how those texts and the Bible as a whole impact our faith and life and what it means to view the Bible historically, as literature, and as sacred scripture.
Faith & Race Initiative
The WPC Faith and Race Initiative is a new group that will explore the connections between faith and race in the church and in our community. The group hopes to offer events (like tours, discussions, and book reads) about once a month.
Adult Christian Formation regularly hosts speakers, gathers for plays or musicals at local theaters, and more!

Join the Adult Formation Team!
It takes a vital community to plan our Adult Formation classes and programs. The Adult Formation team explores many options and together we choose topics, formats, and programs that challenge us to question and explore our faith and to grow in the love of Christ. Many hands are required to continue our high quality adult education. I invite you to join us in planning and brainstorming! Contact Jacob Bolton to see how you might be able to help.
Reformed Institute Programs
The Reformed Institute was created in 2003 to address a growing need among Presbyterian churches in the Washington DC area to celebrate, support and enhance understanding of the Reformed (Presbyterian) heritage. As a member church, Westminster and our members often participate in Reformed Institute programs and events.
Remembering Congressman John Lewis

Cook. Listen to the audio recording of the event by clicking on the play button below.
