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.
Fourth Tuesday Potluck
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: May 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. Location information by email from Nancy Hall Berens.
It’s time to read the rest of “Friedman’s Fables” by Rabbi Edwin H. Friedman. This year we will read the second half of the fables (p. 95 to the end). Rabbi Friedman has some unique insights into human nature and uses humor to help us better understand ourselves and others. Learn how new ideas and imagination can help us overcome barriers in ourselves and in our relationships. Watch for meeting details later.

Annual Fall Retreat
