Pastor's Welcome


WLCS Pastor

Welcome!

Fred Masted, Pastor

Westchester Lutheran Church began because the faith of a few Christian people was put into action in 1943.   Today, the faith of our church family seeks to go forward under God's guiding hand.  May we, as God's servants in this place, continue to dedicate ourselves to His will being done at Westchester Lutheran Church.

"If We love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us." (1 John 4:12b)

Comforters


Comforters


For over 40 years the Comforters have created a wide variety of items to provide warmth and comfort for those in need. They take fabric, linen, yarn and more to lovingly hand make unique objects. In 2014 alone, the Comforters made over 400 baby blankets, 150 large quilts and dozens of lap robes, knitted shawls and tote bags. These items were donated to charity and distributed locally, across the United States and around the world.

Donations of any kind are happily accepted no matter if they are finished items or material remnants. New members are always welcome and even if you don’t like to sew there are many ways to volunteer.

The Comforters meet Wednesday mornings from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
