Flying Solo is a group for singles in their prime years (more or less 50 and above) belonging to the life and ministry of Westminster Presbyterian Church. The group offers single adults the opportunity for Christian fellowship, spiritual and intellectual growth, and service to others. No reservation needed for our events, unless indicated. For more information, please contact Nancy Hall Berens, Director.

We gather each month for a casual potluck dinner and to make sandwiches for the Bag Lunch project. Please bring a salad, entree or dessert to share. 7 PM in the Johnson Parlor. Upcoming dates: June 27, July 25, August 22.
The Book Group meets four times a year to discuss works of fiction and non-fiction (alternating quarterly) that help us reflect on our faith and our world. Mondays from 7-9 PM in Johnson Parlor.
Monday, July 31: During the next two summers we will read and discuss Friedman’s Fables by Rabbi Edwin H. Friedman. This year we will read the first half of the fables (p. 1-94) and then do the rest next summer. Rabbi Friedman uses his unique insights and humor to create fables which help us better understand ourselves and others. Learn how new ideas and imagination can help us overcome barriers in ourselves and in our relationships.
