Ministries & Community Outreach
Westminster Presbyterian Church believes in giving back to our community by opening our doors and hearts to those in need.
If you would like to volunteer your time and/or resources to one of these ministries, please contact the church office.
Room in the Inn
Room in the Inn is a structured intentional Christ-centered community supporting people in need of a safe place to receive shelter and compassionate care as they seek to work through trauma of homelessness. Rooms are provided to offer a peaceful and quiet nights sleep. Guests are given time and care by the innkeepers in order to bring stability to their lives. Guests are encouraged to access supportive assistance from local agencies and loving folks. The goal is to assist our guests in establishing new opportunities of homes and employment.
Please follow this ministry on our Facebook page Room in the Inn Columbia, TN. Our needs are ever changing and we seek community support for food, clothing, linens, etc.
The Compass Program is a mentoring initiative offered by the Maury County Juvenile Court in collaboration with Westminster Presbyterian Church. The 10-week program provides mentoring, guidance and community service projects and educational opportunities for at-risk youth. From its inception in 2014, Compass has served 215 youth. Many of the youth have gone on to complete college and enter careers in nursing, education, food management and firefighting.
The Food Pantry is a year-round program providing free food and toiletries to families and individuals in the community. The Food Pantry is supported by many volunteers, Room in the Inn guests, Compass youth, and community donations.
On the first Thursday of each month members of Westminster Presbyterian Church host Bingo at Magnolia Healthcare of Columbia for the residents. It's a great opportunity to share our Christian love with our friends at Signature Healthcare.
