WTSBooks Free Shipping Announcement
Westminster Theological Seminary is pleased to provide our alumni free shipping, twice a month, on orders from the Westminster Bookstore. In recent months, shipping costs have increased drastically as shipping companies are faced with rising fuel and transportation costs. In order to maintain our commitment to provide free shipping to our alumni, we have adjusted our shipping method.
Alumni book orders less than $49 and using the free shipping code will be shipped via Streamlite. Streamlite is a cost-effective shipping service that is both fast and reliable. Your order is sent via Streamlite to your local post office and delivered to your home or business by your local mail carrier. It is fully trackable and arrives in 4-6 business days. Orders $49 and above will continue to be shipped via Premium UPS Ground.
As you know, the Westminster Bookstore offers great monthly – and even weekly – specials. Though the shipping time with Streamlite is slightly longer than with UPS we hope the trade off with more frequent shipping twice a month is a benefit to being in the Westminster Alumni Association.
2011 Preaching Conference
Cure for the Boring Sermon
Join us for the 2011 Preaching Conference, October 25-26, with keynote speaker Rev. Kevin DeYoung. Seminar speakers will include Westminster professors Rev. Dr. Carl Trueman, Rev. Dr. David Garner, and Rev. John Currie. This conference is free, but registration is required.
"When we preach boring sermons we give the impression that the Bible is boring. This is certainly not our calling as heralds of the best news the world could ever hear. We are pleased to have Rev. Kevin DeYoung with us at this year’s conference to help us find the antidote to boring sermons."
