Have a great end of summer and we will see you in the fall!

Come celebrate that school is done for the year! All students who have just finished middle school are invited to breakfast and a hang-out time in the Student Center on June 17th from 9:30–11:30am. We will have waffles with all the toppings and lots of fun!

Sunday, June 18th is Move Up Sunday for all students who are going into 6th and 9th grade in the fall!

Students Who are Going into 6th Grade

Monday Nights — You are also invited to start attending Middle School Youth Group on Monday nights from 6–8:15pm in the Student Center. Hang out with friends and enjoy pizza & snacks from 6–7pm. From 7–8:15 play games, worship together and learn more about following Jesus!

Have you ever wondered what Snapchat is and how kids are using it? On May 16th, Josh Cordell and a panel of youth will be discussing just that! Who better to teach us about social media than the youth who are currently using it?

This event will take place in the Westside Chapel from 6 – 7pm. It is intended for parents who have kids who are currently using social media or will in the future!

For Westside Youth’s Parenting Series, we will bring you varied perspectives and information on kids and youth to help you parent on-purpose and raise kids who know and love Jesus. We believe it’s helpful to hear from different views and voices from our schools and community, even if they differ from our own views. These varied perspectives help us make the best decisions for our kids, know what they are facing and how to communicate with them. 
 


Childcare is provided for birth through 5th grade, but please register your child so we know how many kids to anticipate.

 

We are praying that this is an exciting time of students getting to know God better as well as a fun-filled, memorable camp experience! We will have times of worship, messages, small group/cabin time, bon fires, games, free time and of course lots of fun!
