Westminster Presbyterian Church

submitted by Rev. Denise Clark-Jones

It was good to attend my first meeting of the Moss-Bradley Association last evening and to be introduced as the new Pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church. It is a privilege to serve a parish in this historic and beautiful part of Peoria, and I want you to know that I appreciate the unique nature of this part of our city.

It was energizing to realize that the folks who live around the church are passionate and concerned citizens, willing to speak their minds and be active in the decisions that are made that effect this neighborhood. Historic neighborhoods like this are often lost due to apathy, and that is certainly not going to happen here!

I hope to be able to bring about a cordial relationship between the church and this community. I realize that all has not been smooth in the past, and I cannot assure you that the church will always please the community with decisions it must make to forward the cause of its ministry in this city and the world.

However, I promise to be a good listener, and where possible to find points of agreement that will help make us good neighbors. We are here to minister. And we hope that part of that ministry will see many of you come by to worship with us or take part in some special event that interests you.

Our doors are wide open … and no matter what, we will listen, and we will do our very best to be a meaningful and productive part of Moss-Bradley.

As the life of the community and church intertwine here on Moss Avenue, I hope that it will come to be a mutually affirming relationship. As you see me in and about the neighborhood, please take time to say hello and take some time to chat.
