August 2nd, 2020 Service - Rev. Tom Yorty

As you should already know, our twelve-week seasonal Sunday Worship Service Program for 2020 (June 21st through September 6th), is currently suspended until further notice do to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  

This Sunday, August 2nd, our service was to be celebrated with Rev. Tom Yorty, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Buffalo, NY.  

Tom Yorty came to Westminster Presbyterian Church in 1998 following pastorates in Easton, PA and Williamsville, NY.  

During Tom's pastorate at Westminster, the congregation has continued its historic role as a leader in mission to the city, social justice, and worship and music ministries.  

In 2005, the Church launched the Westminster Economic Development Initiative, which provides business coaching and loans to Buffalo’s growing immigrant community as well as an English language learner after school program for K-8 children.  Westminster's Early Childhood Programs is a leader in early childhood development in Western New York.  Westminster works in solidarity with Muslim and Jewish communities to provide education and outreach.

Tom grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, graduated from Muskingum College, Yale Divinity School, and Drew University (PhD, 19th Century Studies), and has served on the board of Auburn Theological Seminary, NYC since 2003.  

He and his wife, Carol, have two adult sons and a Labrador retriever.  Tom enjoys writing poetry, riding his bike, and playing with his granddaughter.

Tom has graciously invited the Friends of the Holloway Memorial Chapel to participate in Westminster's Sunday Service virtually in their home as we are all practicing social distancing and cannot meet in person. 

Sunday's service will be broadcast live on both their Youtube Channel and their Facebook Live Account indicated below.

Both the YouTube and Facebook broadcasts are identical and “premiere” at 8 AM on Sunday morning, but the post stays up and folks tend to watch it over the course of the morning and week.  Viewers can’t fast forward ahead but, if you log on at 8:10 you can start over from the beginning. 

Thank you so much Rev. Tom!
