We warmly welcome you to Westminster! We are glad you have chosen to visit our website, and we hope that we will have the privilege to meet you in person soon. Below are some answers to basic questions that you may already be asking.
When and where do you have Sunday worship?
Our worship times are 10:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. every Sunday.
We are located at 3701 Jones Creek Rd, Baton Rouge, LA 70816. For a helpful map, click here.
What if I've never been to a church before?
First, we want you to know that you are welcome! Also, we want you to know that you will hear good news (the "Gospel"); in fact, it is the center of our message & ministry. If you would like a helpful introduction to it, please click here. Even if you are apprehensive about walking thru the front doors, please know you will be warmly welcomed and will find Westminster to be a loving community. Please come visit us!
Do you have discipleship classes on Sunday?
Yes. Except for June & July, please feel free to join us every Sunday at 9:15 for discipleship classes for ALL ages - preschool, elementary, youth, and adult. We also provide nursery. It's simple to find, for we have a single hallway of classrooms with labels above the doors indicating the class.
What should I expect for my first visit to morning worship?
You will be warmly greeted at the front door of the church building, where you will be handed a copy of our worship bulletin. You will not be "caught off guard," for our worship exactly follows the bulletin contents. For your help, we have prepared a sample copy of our regular bulletin here, and a sample copy of our bulletin when the Lord's Supper is celebrated here.
The first Sunday of each month we celebrate the Lord's Supper during morning worship and enjoy a church-wide meal afterward. We would be delighted to have you attend our church-wide meal ... there is always plenty of food for all! If you wish to know how the Lord's Supper is conducted and who may participate, click here.
When is nursery provided & how is it conducted?
We gladly offer a nursery for ages 5 and under during our discipleship classes (9:15-10:00) and morning worship (10:30-12:00). There is no obligation to place your child in the nursery, for we encourage children to join their parents in corporate worship as soon as the parents believe they are able. When parents sign-in their child, they also provide a cell phone number so that they can be silently texted if the need arises. Our policy is to have two adults serving in the nursery, which is staffed by female members on a rotation schedule.
