Facilities

Westminster's facilities are located north of Lancaster on Route 272, Oregon Pike. In 1970, our first facility was built: a classic white New England colonial style worship center with steeple and related rooms. Expansions followed as our congregation continued to grow. The land parcel was expanded as God providentially made adjacent land available, until a total of 18 acres was acquired by 1999.

In 2006, the church completed a major expansion that doubled usable space of the building, to about 96,000 square feet and to provide a lovely "meetinghouse" style sanctuary seating 1,150 people for worship.

Wedding Policy

At Westminster Church, we are happy to serve couples seeking to be married. Our goal is to help build strong and God-honoring marriages - we are not simply here to facilitate weddings held in our building. In view of that goal, our policy requires that to be married at Westminster Church, both people must be able to testify to personal faith in Jesus Christ, must not be unbiblically divorced, and one must be either a member or a child of a currently active member. This policy is not intended to be harsh or exclusive, but we get continual requests for weddings and our ministry is so busy already.
