Westside Stories

During this time of uncertainty and social separation we want to remain connected with your and your children! We will be releasing a new Westside Story video each week. Each video will contain a story from the Bible, discussion questions for you and your kids and a memory verse for the coming week. We hope this will encourage you to continue to teach these truths to your families while we are staying home. Here is this week’s video:

10:15a Worship Service

In this service we worship God through our gathering, our singing, our praying, our giving and our listening. In each of these areas we focus — as a community — on God and his love and grace for all.

In our worship through song, we consciously draw on the musical history of the church. We sing the traditional hymns of the faith as well as the worship music of today. Our primary musical goal is to inspire and support heartfelt congregational singing for the glory of God and the encouragement of each other. We take great joy in singing together.

In our worship through listening, we usually study a passage of either the Old or New Testament in order to understand it in its linguistic, historical and cultural context. Each week we strive to understand what the text means and how it should impact the way we live.

This Sunday

Due to the continuing threat of the coronavirus all services and activities are suspended at our church until such time as it is deemed safe to meet together. Our service this week can be viewed on Facebook Live at 10:15a on Easter Sunday! Join us online! We will sing and Pastor Ken will preach a sermon.

We encourage you to listen to these songs this week:

Sunday Schools

Although we do many things in mixed-age groups, our Sunday morning classes are divided by age and interest.

9:15a Children’s Sunday Schools

Our children’s and youth classes meet from 9:15a to 10:00a. In our pre-K through 1st grade class our children will be learning simple stories from the Bible to help them understand God and His love for them.

9:15a Adult Bible Studies

We typically have two or more adult classes which meet from 9:15a to 10:00a. One class, held in the main room, usually focuses on a book of the Old or New Testament, and is structured to cover a manageable portion of scripture in an interactive lecture format. While the leader has responsibility for teaching the passage, there is plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions.

There is usually a concurrent women’s discussion class which centers on the study of a Christian book and serves as a place of fellowship and prayer.

Children's Church

We have nursery available for children under 3 years of age.

In our Pre-K Children’s Church, we teach our children about God through specific stories in the Bible. We believe the best way for this age group to learn the stories from the Bible and their lessons about God is through repetition, so we repeat each story of the Bible in new and fun ways for multiple weeks at a time. Our kids will hear Bible stories, sing songs, make crafts, and learn to pray together. Come bring your little ones to join the fun!

In our K-3rd Children’s Church our kids learn the whole story of the Bible through the Gospel Project curriculum. This curriculum tells the stories of both the Old and New Testaments in ways that point the children to Jesus. Our hope is for our children to have an understanding of the big picture of God’s Word, and how it shows us how deeply He loves and cares for each of us through Jesus Christ. We hope you’ll bring your children to sing songs, hear Bible stories, play games, and learn about God’s love for them!

We would be pleased to have you worship with us this Sunday.
