Child Dedication & Parent Dedication Class

Child Dedication & Parent Dedication Class

Child dedication is a special time where parents dedicate themselves, their child, and their parenting efforts to God. Why? We do this so that when your child is old enough to understand, they too can choose to follow Jesus.

If you are interested in dedicating your child we encourage you to attend an informational class prior to the dedication on March 5 at 12:30pm. Childcare will be provided for those who register.

WHAT IF...
... you truly believe that Jesus loves you? What IF you truly believe that Jesus forgives you? What IF your life changed because you are known and loved by the one true king? What IF that love overflowed and impacted your family, your friends, your work and your community?

Join us as we hear from live Westside teachers and video teachers such as Jennie Allen, Bianca Olthoff and David Platt surrounding this unconditional, all-encompassing love and how living daily in this love overflows and spills into the lives of those around us.

Our Service Plans for Inclement Weather

We have been following this weekend’s weather forecast closely and I wanted to inform you of our plan in the chance of inclement weather. We want to keep all our families safe.

IN THE CHANCE THAT WE DO NOT HAVE ICE...

We will have service as usual! We'll see you here :)

IF MOST ROADS ARE SAFE TO DRIVE AND WEATHER ISN'T AS SEVERE…

We will only have two services. We will have our 9:30am & 11:00am services. We will make this announcement on Saturday by 3pm on our websiteFacebook, and twitter. Our phone will be updated with a message about the changes.

IF ICE TAKES OVER... 

We will cancel all Sunday services and you watch week two of Follow Me at home. We will make this announcement on Sunday morning at 6am, unless it’s needed to be made earlier. We will announce it on our websiteFacebook, and twitter. Our phone will be updated with a message about the changes.

We want to be wise in making the decision to cancel services and we want you to be wise as to whether you should get out in this weather!

ONLINE SERVICE

We have prepared a service for you and your family to watch online should we need to cancel. You will be able to sing, download the bulletin, and listen to week 2 of "Follow Me.” The service will be posted on Facebook and available online.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

The Church Has Left the Building | New Year's Weekend

THE CHURCH HAS LEFT THE BUILDING

Church has left the building to BLESS others on New Years Weekend and this is how:

We want to encourage you to throw a New Year's Eve party on Saturday night or Sunday Supper on New Year's Day. 

Make the choice on which you'll do. Then, choose your Lifegroup, another Westside family or friend to do it with. Then...

1) Begin praying for someone, who you want to know Jesus, that you can invite to your party or supper. Take a big step of courage and invite them to your New Year's Eve party or Sunday supper! This may be something you want to do with your Lifegroup. 

2) Listen to them during your time together. Get to know them by asking questions. Listen to their passions, wants, and fears. 

3) Eat together! When it comes time to thank Jesus for the food, I want to encourage you to ask everyone to say something they are thankful for in 2016. That's it. Be a thankful church and let your thankfulness for what God has done for you be your story. 

These three practices will set you up to follow-up the party or supper to serve them and eventually share your story with them. So...

4) Listen for an opportunity to serve them. It may be something they say in conversation that you can help them with. It may be something that you want to do for them later. Be praying for the Holy Spirit to help you discover a way to take a follow-up step and serve them. 

5) As you build your relationship and learn their story, the will likely ask you about your story or about why you follow Jesus. That is the open door for you to give an answer for why your hope is in Jesus and what Jesus has done for you. 

Share you party or supper ideas below:
