Every marriage needs enrichment, support, and connection. You will find these and much more in our Better Together group for married couples.

In Better Together you will gain tools to strengthen your marriage, find support, and connection with other couples within Westside Church.
Group topics include… forgiveness, covenant marriage, love languages, principles of a lasting marriage, and staying in love. Each session is a stand-alone topic and you are welcome to attend any class.
It is scheduled during our Sunday evening service time and we provide children’s ministries for those who need it. All married couples are welcome.
Essentials is a series of collaborative sessions examining the story of God and the story of us. Through short teaching segments and guided individual practicum, you will rewrite the story of your life, identify your core values, spiritual gifts, and develop a personal mission statement. We will then focus in on the habits that will set you up for success and propel you toward the fulfillment of God’s purpose for your life.
Grief Support classes and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable Grief Support resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. It is hard to have patience with people who say, ‘There is no death’ or ‘Death doesn’t matter.’
You are welcome to begin attending our Grief Support group at any point. Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our next 12-week cycle.
Three key elements are:
Video seminar about grief related topics
Group discussion facilitated by Grief Support Leaders
Personal study and application of concepts through
a personal workbook
