Local Mission

Local Mission
Jesus commands us to love our neighbors
and at Westminster we seek to do that by supporting four local ministries. Westminster supports these ministries in addition to our school partners:

The Foodbank

The Foodbank – the only one of its kind in the area – nourishes the hunger relief efforts of the community through the acquisition and distribution of food to people who are hungry throughout Montgomery, Greene and Preble counties.spacer

Westminster supports The Foodbank through our monthly hunger offerings of non-perishable food items and monetary gifts on the first Sunday of the month and the proceeds from the "From the Garden" table (located in Fellowship Hall following worship during the growing season).

ID Ministry

Being a downtown church, we see many people in need walk through our doors each week. The majority of our funds for the needy are used to assist people in need to acquire birth certificates and state identification cards needed to access state and federal services and to enroll children in school. A special offering to support this ministry is received on the fourth Sunday of Advent. This volunteer-run program is on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Clients seeking assistance should bring a document with their Social Security number on it or a current utility or medical bill.


Westminster Document Storage Ministry

The Westminster Document Storage Ministry is a community service effort to provide clients and their dependents with a secure location to store any of their government-issued documents. The WDMS, is available to all residents of Dayton and neighboring communities. There is no cost to store documents. All records are kept locked in a fireproof cabinet. Only trained Document Storage Ministry volunteers have access to this cabinet. We treat your documents with as much care and respect as if they were our own.

Wednesday: 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Dates and times subject to change. Please contact us for current hours, questions, or concerns.


Done in a Day

In addition to supporting the ministries above, Westminster provides opportunities for members and friends to spend a Saturday working with other agencies and non-profit ministries in our community through a program we call Done in a Day or DID. Twice a year (check the Upcoming Events page), interested individuals meet in Fellowship Hall at 8:15 a.m. After introductory comments and instructions, members head out to a local work site.

Everyone works at a local agency from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and then returns to the church by 12:15 p.m. for lunch and the opportunity to share mission experiences with members from other work sites.

Habitat for Humanity

Dayton, Ohio Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, volunteer-driven Christian ecumenical housing ministry dedicated to providing decent, affordable housing to families in need. Westminster members actively participate in “Catch the Building Spirit” the collaborative Presbytery and Catholic build that kicks off each summer with a blitz week beginning Memorial Day weekend.
