OLLI

Westminster Presbyterian Church is located in the historic Moss-Bradley neighborhood, as is our very well-known neighbor to the north – Bradley University. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Bradley is an organization of more than 1,000 Peoria-area residents, ages 50 and over, who want to stay vital and active as they reach and enjoy retirement. One way they do that is to continue learning through educational travel, classes, lectures, cinema events and study groups. Many of our Westminster seniors participate as OLLI students.

Over the years, Westminster has been pleased to provide program presenters, classroom space and parking for OLLI participants as they continue on their quest for lifelong learning and enrichment.

 

Wrapped in God’s Love (WIGL)quilt_img

Wrapped in God’s Love is a church mission that began in 2005 under the leadership of the late Sandra Dutro and Glenna Stimpert. In the beginning, prayer shawls were made and given to church members and friends in need of comfort. Over the years, this mission has expanded to include lap covers, baptismal quilts, scarves for Common Place, cot covers for Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Education Center, and caregiver aprons for Westminster Infant Care Center. Much love, time, and skill are put into making each item with the hope that recipients will feel the warmth and love when using these prepared “comfort covers.”
