I’m writing to give you updated information since our April 2 letter. We’re all eagerly awaiting the time when we can reopen our building and, once more, gather together in person to worship. Unfortunately, we don’t know precisely when that will be, but it will certainly be no earlier than mid-June.
When we do reopen, it will be gradually and in conformity to advice offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Illinois. We’re currently studying Governor Pritzker’s plan to “Restore Illinois” and the CDC recommendations. As we get more details, we’ll be sure to communicate them to you.
One thing is certain, worship will remain different than it was just weeks ago. So, prepare yourselves for the possibilities of being seated in family-groups, wearing masks, refraining from handshakes and hugs, and more.
In addition, we will continue to record and broadcast our worship services indefinitely so that those who remain uncomfortable with corporate worship or are in a high-risk medical category can participate at a distance.
Our world has changed. In our sermon series we’ve been seeing that even in change—perhaps especially in periods of change—Jesus is with us. Let not your hearts be troubled: Jesus is with us. In fact, he’s ahead of us.
In Christ’s Service Together,
Pastor Jeff Gissing
Lou Jacobs, Clerk of Session
Westminster Presbyterian Church Session
Special thanks to all those who contributed messages and pictures to fill our sanctuary for Pastor Jeff when he delivers his online message. Job Well Done Faithful Servants Kerry and Sue.
The best way to experience what Westminster is all about is to attend a worship service on a Sunday morning at 10:30am. You'll meet the community, be taught thru a sermon message, and have a chance to connect in person. Join us each week as we learn how to live life to it's fullest; with faith, family, accountability, and humility.
This website is also an opportunity to catch just a glimpse, a small glimpse, of our church family. Yes...... you can see some of our ministries; Yes........ you can hear a sermon; Yes...... you can ask a question; but nothing compares to the feeling of being amongst our family of Christian brothers and sisters.
