The Mission Committee is pleased to once again announce The Blessing for 2023. Mission has set aside $7,000 to be awarded to a local organization chosen by the congregation. This is the 5th year Westminster has been able to provide a large gift to a local organization. Prior recipients were NAMI (2019), Kaden’s Closet (2020), House of Hope (2021) and Cedar Valley Angels (2022).

Why $7,000? A donation of $7,000 can accomplish a few things that smaller gifts might not accomplish. An organization can immediately consider larger endeavors, new programs, or expansion of services that they might not be able to consider, possibly coupled with other funds or matching gifts. This is an opportunity for our church to help a local organization make a larger impact in our community!

The process works as follows: anyone in our congregation can nominate any non-profit service agency or organization in the Cedar Valley. Pick up a nomination form from the Welcome Center or download the form by clicking the button below. The Application asks for some information that may take a little while to compile so please do not wait until the last minute to start the process.

Please submit all nominations by Monday, November 6. The Mission committee will then select three finalists and announce them ahead of the vote on Sunday, December 3.
