Westminster Presbyterian’s “Field of Hope”: Creating a Family Home in the Historic Westside Neighborhood.

Westminster Presbyterian Church in Springfield, IL, located at the intersection of South Walnut and Edwards streets, reports that it has successfully initiated a project deemed the “field of hope”.

Rev. Dr. Blythe Denham Kieffer wrote about the initiative in a guest column for the State Journal-Register (11/6/2022), Westminster acquired property at 626 South Glenwood to work with the City of Springfield to demolish and replace a “.. dilapidated home and carriage house …” on the property, and with Habitat for Humanity construct a new home next year for a family of seven who will make their home in the Historic Westside Neighborhood.

This project grew out of the church’s 2020 Steadfast Neighbor Service week and stems from its religious beliefs and commitments.
