LOVE OTHERS- DONATE BLOOD! ❤️Donating blood is a simple act that can mean so much to those in need. January is National Blood Donor Month, so what better time to make a donation and impact someone’s life? That “someone” could be a loved one or friend. It’s the time of year when local blood supplies are dipping due to high patient demand. All donations are by appointment only. The one hour donation appointment is a safe and essential action to support local hospitals and patients. The pop-up centers are being conducted in accordance with social distancing guidelines. No walk-ins, guests, or people under age 16 are permitted onsite. All donors are required to wear masks during their appointment. To make your appointment, call 1-800-398-7888 or visit schedule.bloodworksnw.org #wcbellevue

Authentic love for God goes hand-in-hand with doing right towards others, including the vulnerable and the oppressed. We as a church family continue to look for and step into opportunities to stand against injustice in all its forms, and to promote life, reconciliation, and genuine love.
The resources, links, and events gathered on this page represent an entry point into the conversation.  Along the way, we’ll strive to live lives marked by:
LISTENING – with understanding to both the spoken and the unspoken. To listen well requires empathy, moments of silence, and non-judgment. 
CURIOSITY – celebrate a mindset of learning. 
VULNERABILITY – negotiate relationships with a sense of openness. 
GRACIOUSNESS – the ability to be in community with each other and speaking for the rights of others. 
BELONGING – create a sense of connection rather than silos of difference. (Adapted from Kori Carew’s talk “Just Belonging: Finding the Courage to Interrupt Bias” available on TedTalks) 
Like the apostle Paul, we need to recognize that we have not arrived, but instead “press on to take hold” of the fullness of Jesus’ call on each of our lives (Phil. 3:12). May we courageously live out His love for all nations, tribes, peoples, and languages (Rev. 7:9). #wcbellevue #mlk #mlkday

Westminster,
 
It’s a sunny day as I write this note. To be honest, in spite of all that is going on in our world, I’m filled with profound gratitude and deep hope. I’m grateful for each of you, the call that God has on your life as you love Him and your neighbor, and the ways I know He is using you in your calling to work and bring His kingdom wherever He has placed you. I’m hopeful about His plans. Not our circumstances, but His plans. God has entrusted us with much and called us to great purpose – together.

This is the part we want to talk about this weekend. As we’ve started this study of Ecclesiastes, it’s been really helpful to put life in perspective. This weekend, we will study 4:7-12 and look at the important topic of community. It’s an encouraging, practical, and hopeful message. In our lives outside of God’s design, we all gravitate toward isolation. Self-sufficient, individualistic westerners do this naturally. But it’s not just this culture. Every culture moves in this direction in different ways. The Bible says that this approach doesn’t promise flourishing. The only hope for a good life is if we learn to walk through life together. - Ryan #wcbellevue

“Westminster Family,

I hope you are having a good start to 2021. This week as we watched events transpire in our nation’s capitol, it was a clear reminder that our hope isn’t in a leader or a country, but a King and Kingdom. Let’s remember Jesus' words to be salt and light in a world of obvious decay and darkness. Please join me in praying for our nation.

The events of the last few days are a reminder that we must continually put life in perspective to make sense of this good but broken world. I’m looking forward to continuing our study in Ecclesiastes this weekend. Ecclesiastes helps us to put life in perspective and follow God with wisdom, and this Sunday we’ll be talking about the topic of time. It’s a fascinating subject full of implications for our lives as we follow Jesus. As we study this book, I also had a chance to spend 30 minutes with Dr. James Hamilton talking about it. He’s very insightful and I hope you will enjoy our conversation if you have the time for it. You can watch it here.

Whether it be in person or online, I look forward to worshipping with you this weekend. I’m praying for you!” - Ryan
