Whether at church, school, business or home, you are leading people and projects every day. You're leading in a culture that is constantly changing and redefining itself. Leadership takes perseverance, dedication and a commitment to stretch your mind, expand your heart and use your God-given gifts to impact your world in real and powerful ways.
At Shipwrecked, kids will discover that Jesus rescues them! This summer at Vacation Bible School kids will go on an amazing adventure and learn that Jesus is their rescuer! Each day will be filled with Bible-learning activities where kids will have an amazing time singing songs, hearing Bible stories, playing games, making and eating treats, and creating science gadgets they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Each day will conclude with the “Sail Away Sendoff” Large Time that gets everyone excited about living what out they’ve learned at VBS!
At Westside Church we value and accept each other just as God made us – wherever we are on the journey! We place a high priority on developing meaningful relationships that are grounded in God’s unconditional love. We invite you to join us for one of our Bible Study sessions, where we will look into the Word of God and allow it to transform our lives.

MORE LIFE is Westside Church’s Tent City Summer Camp for 2018!!!
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family. Our July 22nd Date is baptisms in the park!
We are so excited to offer you a fun way to connect with other Westsiders and your neighborhood! Summer Neighborhood BBQ’s are happening the Second Wednesdays of July and August.
Locations coming soon!

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
