The Local Mission Committee also sponsors the Westminster Community Grant Program, an annual award to local nonprofits to help further their missions.
The National Mission Committee coordinates Westminster’s national mission work. They currently focus on three primary areas: housing rehabilitation in Appalachia with the Appalachia Service Project; regional hunger concerns through gleaning trips in connection with the Northern Neck Food Bank and the Society of St. Andrew; and support of Native American ministry and mission with the Bdecan Presbyterian Church in Spirit Lake, North Dakota.
