 At Westminster Presbyterian Church, we believe "every disciple of the church" is called to ministry.  So at the top of our letterhead you will find these words:

Woody is our "maestro" of all things musical at Westminster. He and wife Joyce are the dynamic leaders of our adult choir and our bell choir.  Woody arranges special music throughout the year adding to our worship of God.  Woody and Joyce are retired teachers from the Manatee School system, who enjoy golf, tennis, and kayaking.  If you love music, contact Woody if you can catch him...

The Reverend Peter MacFarlane is a retired Presbyterian Minister of the Word and Sacrament who serves as our Minister of Visitation.  Peter brings words of encouragement and prayers to those in the hospital or homebound.  Peter and wife Carol have been an important part of Westminster church for over a dozen years.  Occasionally you might even see him in his "kilt."
