Funerals or memorial services at Westminster Presbyterian Church affirm the hope of the Christian gospel and the good news of the resurrection.
If you have experienced the death of a loved one, please notify our church office or pastor as soon as possible so that we can provide comfort and assist you with the practical realities of dealing with grief and loss. Funeral and memorial services are always planned under the direction of the pastor; other clergy may be invited to participate at the request of the family.
The church will make every effort to accommodate the needs of the family regarding the time and day of the service. Please call the church office at 309-673-8501 to discuss funeral planning details, including the type of service, visitation, the Order of Worship, receptions, and other specifics.
“Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation but are sustained by the power of the Spirit and the community of faith. The church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve.”

“As a newcomer to Westminster, I’ve found it to be a most welcoming fellowship. I look forward to going to services and events and find the warmth of the congregation to be most helpful to a newcomer to the entire area. I find sermons challenging … music beautiful and well prepared … and a dignity in the worship that is all too lacking in most Protestant congregations. Mix this with an open atmosphere where it is OK to question and still be seen as a good Christian, and I know I’ve found one important ‘home’ in Central Illinois.”
