Home > Connect


The Christian journey is not a do-it-yourself project.  This is a cooperative venture, and Christian community is the web of supportive relationships which makes the journey possible.  What begins through a living relationship with Christ, continues through the living and breathing connectivity of spiritual friendship and spiritual community.

We want to provide a way of thinking about connection that functions naturally and organically.  While we all need to connect, we do so in ways that are uniquely meaningful to us. There are a host of ways people connect at Westside, and it will take some initiative on your part.  Connection may happen through a program or event, through serving or volunteering, or simply because you are willing to strike up a conversation with someone new.

New and Newer

New to Westside?  Or perhaps you have been around awhile but want to let us know who you are?  We would love to meet you, share our vision for this unique community, and answer any of your questions.  Watch for New and Newer events as they are announced through the year.

Community Dinner
Every year we host a one-off community dinner where we celebrate Westside, its people and ministry.  Look for this year’s dinner at the end of February.
