What to expect on Sundays

We can’t wait to meet you! As you come up the driveway from Shevlin Park Road, your first left will lead you to the parking lot near the Family Commons. Enter through the doors, turn left to find the Student Center and come on in!

On Sundays, no check-in is required for Westside Youth Church at the 10:30am service. Students gather in the Student Center Café to enjoy light breakfast snacks and mingle while doing activities like creating in our art corner or playing ping pong, video games, nine square, or basketball in our gym. Then we gather and sing, pray, and hear a message and take communion.

At the 9am service we have Bible Study for 4th-12th graders. This a study that takes us all the way through the Bible in the course of a few years where we look at God’s plan of redemption and gospel throughout the scriptures.

What to Expect at Youth Group

Westside’s Youth Group also meets in the Student Center. As you come up the driveway from Shevlin Park Road, your first left will lead you into a parking lot. Follow the YTH sandwich board signage that will direct you to the far left door. Come on in!

Our friendly volunteers and staff will greet you and ask you a few questions to help get you checked in and will print out a name tag for you.

After you are checked in, head into the Student Center! During pizza & hang-out time, grab a slice of pizza or a snack from the Student Center Café. You can hang out in the Student Center with friends, play basketball in our gym, do some art in our art corner, or play video games. During the program section of the evening, we’ll gather together and the official fun begins! Each night is a little different, but often consists of games, worship, a message and small group discussions.
