News & Events

join us for, "Now that's what I call Scripture!"

Join us at Westside Fellowship as we begin our Summer Sermon Series-- “Now That’s What I Call Scripture! : Philippians”.  Paul's letter to the Philippians is full of popular and memorable verses that are published on bumperstickers, journal covers, and t-shirts.  Throughout this series, we will dive into to book of Philippians, explore the pop-verses of Paul’s letter, and unpack each one, to better understand each verse in context and how each verse best applies to us as believers in our culture today.  Join us both at 9am and 10:45am on Sunday mornings!
