Welcome to Westminster
At Westminster, we seek to grow in our understanding of God, to learn from the teachings of Jesus Christ, and to be open as to what God's Spirit would lead us to do and to be in this world. Our mission is fulfilled through:
Worship - Worship is the heart of what we are called to do as we seek to glorify God by gathering together to celebrate the mystery of God's presence through word and sacrament, prayer and song, and by going forth to live lives of gratitude.
Grow - We seek to grow and mature as disciples of Jesus Christ by growing in our faith, by growing in our understanding of the world around us, and by growing in our relationships with one another.
Serve - As Christ came not to be served, but to serve, so we seek to continue Christ's own ministry of service in our community and in our world.
We don't claim to have all the answers, but we think it is important to struggle with the questions as we seek to do justice in our community and in the world, and to nurture one another in mutual support. Our vision is to be an inclusive community where faith and life connect. We invite you to join this vibrant community of faith to wherever the journey leads.

Current Schilling Gallery Exhibit
Our exhibit features the work of quilters Melissa Everett and Emily Doane. Melissa describes her quilting in this way: "I started quilting in 2011, after my first son was born. I wanted to make him something he could have forever. The obsession just snowballed from there. In 2012, I opened my Etsy shop, Cycling Jane's Closet, and through it met Emily Doane. Emily, whose work is also featured in this exhibition, invited me to a Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild meeting. That meeting, i joined the guild. I have continued to be an active member and in 2014 became the president. I've enjoyed the creativity, inspiration and education I've gained from the other members. My work is somewhat all over the map. I love trying new techniques, taking classes and learning how others approach the craft. I am a self-taught quilter, learning the craft form other bloggers. My grandmothers were seamstresses and made clothing, but only a great-grandmother, whom I never met, was a quilter. It has been such a healthy outlet for me while staying at home to raise my two boys. This is my first solo exhibition and you can see my growth and exploration of styles throughout the pieces showcased."
