Sunday Services in the Worship Center

Westside is currently hosting one Sunday morning worship service from 10 to 11:30 a.m.each week.

Childcare will be provided for birth through kindergarten.

We are taking a number of precautions to keep folks as safe as possible:

1)  We ask that everyone wear a mask throughout Sunday’s worship services unless a medical or behavioral condition or disability prohibits doing so.  Masks will be provided to those who need one (on a first-come, first-served basis).

2) Our greeters and safety team will be holding us accountable to practice Social Distancing.

3) We will limit the number of seats we set up and limit the number of people we allow in each service.  

4) The chairs will be set up with Social Distancing in mind.  

5) Interactions will be kept to a minimum.  

6) Our greeters, safety team, and childcare workers will wear masks.  

7) We will have a cleaning crew clean bathrooms, classrooms, door handles and other frequently touched surfaces before and after each service.  

8) Childcare will be limited as we will only have classes for children from birth through kindergarten. Children in first grade and above will sit with their parents in the sanctuary.  

9) We will only offer pre-packaged breakfast bars and bottled water. We will NOT offer any self-serve coffee options.  

10) We will NOT pass an offering plate nor the Friendship Registers. You will still have ways to give, submit your prayer requests, and/or request additional info.

11) We also plan to locally broadcast the services via 88.1 FM. This should allow folks to sit in their cars and listen to the service from the parking lot. We are making this option available as overflow seating and for anyone who may want to “attend” the service but not interact with others.  

Everyone’s health and safety is very important to us. We will do our best to provide a safe place for folks to worship. Please realize those of us who attend the services do so at our own risk.   If you are experiencing ANY SIGNS of sickness, please STAY HOME and watch online.   Or, if you are in an AT RISK group, please stay home and watch online.  Or, if you are still hesitant about being in a public place, please stay home and watch online.  For the rest of us, we look forward to our return to the sanctuary.  

If you are not able to attend in person, then please use these links to view the service online, or watch it from our home page:

Each daily fast takes place for 24 hours from sundown to sundown. During the fast, you are asked to only drink water (again, if you are able) and to pray during your typical meal times (at times when you would normally eat). Please pray for Westside Fellowship, her health as a church, her ministries and her future. Pray that God provides wisdom to our leaders as we move forward in these uncertain times.

VBS rescheduled to future date

The Vacation Bible School that was originally scheduled for August 2-5 has been postponed.  We hope to announce a new date in the near future.  At this time, that date is still to be determined.  

Gifts For Guatemala Still Accepted

On July 19, the Guatemala Mission Team shared information about needs in the Guatemala mountain village of Los Canan. You can assist the people of the village by donating money to purchase food. For just $30, you can provide a month's worth of groceries to one of the village's 90 families.  For $35 a month, you can sponsor a child in the village to ensure that child has food, clothing, school supplies, etc. To give toward the Guatemala food drive, click here and make sure to put "Guatemala: Food" in the memo section. To sponsor a child, go to https://worldhelp.net/guatemala-loscanan/
