Youth

We’re excited about our upcoming Summer events for kids. We look forward to seeing you and your kids at some or all of these activities. We will announce more details soon, but here’s some information to put in your calendar.

Westside Kids Outside Play Day

Wednesday, July 13 1:00-3:00pm

Free event with games, water play, frozen treats and fun for kids entering grades 1-5 in the fall.

Art Camp

Aug 9th 9:00 am-Noon

The Westside Art Camp is a free half day camp for kids entering grades 1-12 in the fall. We will offer classes that are age and stage appropriate for kids of all skill levels. There will be an all group gathering to start the day and then off to age and stage appropriate classes.

Westside Family Fest

August 16

Westside Family Festival is an evening event to engage and include the whole family. Carnival style, family fun.

We are having a middle and high school hangout on Monday from 1-4pm in the student center. Games, snacks and lots of good times.

No Evening Youth Group during spring break. No Middle school Monday night. No High School Wednesday night.

Because Westside Youth has been growing, our middle school youth will begin meeting on Monday nights starting January 31st. High school youth group will remain on Wednesday nights. Both nights will have the same schedule: Show up anytime between 6-7pm for food and hanging out, and then youth group runs from 7-8:15pm.

We are excited about this change as it not only gives us room for Westside Youth to continue to grow in size, but more importantly, it gives us room to grow with each of our youth individually as we narrow the age-range and have more time to spend with them.

Middle School students, join us every Monday night for Youth Group in the Student Center.

High School students, join us every Wednesday night for Youth Group in the Student Center.

Show up anytime between 6-7pm for food and having out. Youth Group runs from 7-8:15pm.

We’re excited to share with you an advent for December 2021. We hope you’ll take some time as a family to talk about the Christmas story, to make memories and maybe even create some new traditions. We’ve included lots of fun ideas for the holiday season. We’d love to see photos and hear stories about your advent adventures.

Merry Christmas from the Westside Family Team!

No youth group tonight. We’ll see you in 2022!!! We’ve got a big year planned.

Middle and High School students, join us every Wednesday night for Youth Group in the Student Center. Show up anytime between 6-7pm for pizza and having out. Youth Group runs from 7-8:15pm.

Are you curious what young people are experiencing and feeling right now?

I’ve noticed some very interesting trends and common feelings in the past year from the young people I mentor. This talk is a collection of what they’ve been saying.

Westside Family Pastor Josh Cordell also has a coaching/mentoring business where he meets with as many as 30 young people one-on-one in a week. They talk about goal setting, what’s working and what’s not. They build trust and open communication.

Wednesday, August 11th. 7-8pm at Westside Church. Free. Child Care provided.
