Did you know?

Worship is at the center of life as a community and of our faith formation. That’s why all ages worship together at WestSide. Faith is being formed just through the mere act of attending worship together. That low buzz of kids in worship that you hear? That’s the sound of faith happening! 

Here for the first time? 

Let’s meet! Fill out the digital visitor form or a Welcome card found in your row and drop it in the offering plate or the Welcome Box at the Info Desk.

Sign Up to Volunteer

Put this WestSide tradition on your calendar! June 20, 6:30-8:00 pm. Sign up to volunteer at this neighborhood event. First 50 volunteers get a free t-shirt!

Summer Worship Schedule

We keep our regular schedule of Sunday morning worship at 9 and 10:30 with the exception of Memorial Day weekend, the whole month of July, and Labor Day weekend, when we will have one service at 9:30 am.

Sending Kids to Camp

We think camp is an important part of a person’s faith life. Help support sending our kids to camp with the envelope fundraiser. Grab an envelope off the board and put in the dollar amount of the envelope number. If all envelopes are returned, we will raise over $5,000 for our camp fund. That’s amazing!
