Westminster By-The-Sea is a congregation that has grown steadily from 287 to 775 members in the last 30 years.  A New England style, steepled building houses a congregation known for its welcoming, friendly spirit-filled atmosphere with 2 traditional services on Sunday.  There are Sunday School opportunities for all grades and adults and a top-notch nursery program for our preschoolers.  An annual highlight is our VBS program that welcomes all children from the community.  Midweek there are 3 Disciple classes plus a Bible study.  Our doors have been opened to AA, GA and other community organizations.  There are monthly women's circles plus a men's breakfast with inspirational speakers.  We have ministries for children and a softball team to appeal to our younger families.  Our youth group (middle/high school) meets regularly with different activities including a mission trip each summer.  Our outstanding music program includes the chancel choir and handbells.  We host a Fine Arts Series which includes concerts on our pipe organ and grand piano.  Members with like talents teach or lead such things as music, bridge, golf, scrapbooks, and exercise.  Congregational life is most active in remembering shut-ins, visitation, food for memorial services and other gatherings.  We feel the whole person is important and hold "Body, Mind, and Soul" seminars on health topics and actively support the Presbyterian Counseling Center.  We participate in local, national, and international mission.
