Family Promise

Westminster is a participating church in the Family Promise of Odessa, Inc. organization, enabling homeless families with children the opportunity to gain self-sufficiency.  Four weeks out of the year, families participating in the program are sheltered and fed at the church.  Church members provide meals and serve as overnight hosts to these families.

Trunk-Or-Treat

Every year, the Sunday evening before Halloween, Westminster hosts a Trunk or Treat for neighborhood children. This is a fun-filled evening providing a safe opportunity for families to gather.  Games, traditional Frito pie, and decorated car trunks with goodies are available, free of charge, to those participating

Angel Tree

Westminster provides an opportunity for giving to underprivileged children and adults during the Christmas season through the annual Angel Tree.  Recipients are selected through applications made from our Food Pantry participants.   Church members and friends select an Angel from the tree, purchase and wrap gifts and  the Angel Tree committee delivers the gifts to the Angel Tree recipients.

Christmas in action

Every April, Westminster members and friends join together to rehabilitate a house designated by the local Christmas In Action organization. Repairs most often consist of caulking, painting, and other minor repairs that the home owner is unable to do.
