Westminster is a congregation deeply committed to building a community whose purpose is to serve Jesus Christ in the city. We see our location as a unique gift. We are situated a block away from the state capitol of New York.

We are located in a diverse and vibrant urban neighborhood. At a time of polarization in government, media and religion, and when public discourse is increasingly shrill and uncivil, Westminster attempts to be a wide tent under which diverse ideas are not only tolerated, but welcome.

Save the Pine Bush has their monthly dinner at the rented-out hall below the church. It is accessed by going to 85 Chesnut Street. There is off-street parking next to the church for church functions and the dinner.


Good morning! The sun has risen after the earlier rain showers. Happy Eclipse Day. Two weeks to Labor Day. Partly cloudy and 59 degrees in Warren. There is a south breeze at 6 mph. The dew point is 58 degrees. The skies will clear around 10 am.

Woke up this morning to a brief thunderstorm that left things a tad bit wet and we’ve had some clouds and sun. The weather does look better in Erie and I’m leaving soon so I get there plenty of time to find parking, especially with the eclipse traffic likely to back things up heading onto Presque Isle. I figure I should be there by 11 am, plenty of time to find a good place to watch the eclipse. 

Today will have scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 8am and 11am. Partly sunny, with a high of 79 degrees at 4pm. One degree above normal. Maximum dew point of 66 at 2pm. Southwest wind 6 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. A year ago, we had mostly cloudy skies. It was very sticky. The high last year was 85 degrees. The record high of 98 was set in 1916.

I am a bit worried about the weather for the eclipse, although Erie is some 50 miles west and they have different weather patterns then they have up on the Allegheny Plateau. 

The sun will set at 8:06 pm with dusk around 8:35 pm, which is one minute and 32 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly clear conditions and 73 degrees. The dew point will be 67 degrees. There will be a southwest breeze at 5 mph. Today will have 13 hours and 34 minutes of daytime, an decrease of 2 minutes and 34 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have isolated showers and thunderstorms after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low of 65 degrees at 6am. Five degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 67 at 7pm. South wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. In 2016, we had light rain and mist in the evening, remaining overcast into the early morning. It was somewhat humid. It got down to 55 degrees. The record low of 39 occurred back in 1982.

On this day in 1959, United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs an executive order proclaiming Hawaii the 50th state of the union. I guess that makes president Barack Obama a US Citizen. Not that our current president would believe that. 

As previously noted, there are 2 weeks until Labor Day when the sun will be setting at 7:43 pm with dusk at 8:11 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 80 and 54 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 77 degrees. We hit a record high of 97 back in 1929.
