Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! We share in your joy and are delighted that you are interested in having your wedding ceremony at Westminster Presbyterian Church. We look forward to working with you to ensure that your wedding will be worshipful, dignified and Christ-centered.
At Westminster, we believe that “marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family,” in accordance with the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Christian marriage is, first and last, a service of worship. Our pastor takes seriously her responsibility to prepare couples not only for the wedding ceremony itself, but also for their life after the ceremony. Couples seeking to be married at Westminster should contact the church office to arrange for a meeting with the pastor. One or two premarital counseling sessions is required. Please call the office at 309-673-8501 to schedule an appointment.
“As a newcomer to Westminster (in September of 2014), 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.”
