Who We Are

We are a congregation of Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church (USA) serving Jesus Christ and bearing witness to the Kingdom of God from the crossroads of Jersey County, Illinois.

We have been serving Christ in Jersey County for 184 years.

We are a congregation of just over one hundred members dedicated to serving God and our neighbors with the gifts and talents God has given us.

We seek to deepen our relationship with God through worship, bible study and service.

We are dedicated to the health and welfare of our community.  We serve as Rotarians and Elks; on the Jersey County Fair board, Jerseyville Library board, city council, and Jersey County Business Association; in our schools, doctors’ offices, and hospital.

We are servants of our community.  We provide meeting space in our church for community non-profit groups to hold their meetings.  The Jersey County Business Association uses our facilities for their Lunch and Learn series.  The Silas Hamilton chapter of the DAR uses our facilities for their awards banquets.

We believe in working together. We are actively involved with the Jersey County Ministerial Association that works with The Stadium Theater in putting on special Saturday morning free film events, that works together to feed hungry children during the summer, that provides financial assistance to people in crisis, and that worships together in celebrations of Thanksgiving and Easter. We are one of the Jersey County Character Counts Community Partners. We participate in the Jersey County Interagency Council as we seek to address the needs of people in Jersey County.

We do not ask, “Who is our neighbor?” We simply seek to be “the neighbor” everyone wishes they had, and that Christ calls us to be.
