In response to the Governor’s statewide cancellation of all group gatherings of 25 or larger and the President’s guideline to cancel gatherings larger than 10 people, Westside Church will be closed for all services and classes, as well as youth and young adult gatherings for the duration of the statewide cancellation (currently expected to end on April 14). During this unprecedented global health crisis, we are committed to protecting the most vulnerable in our community and will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds.

As a church, we are called to love & care for our neighbors. Right now, that includes protecting our neighbors in every way we can. Our adherence to these regulations reflects our sense of responsibility to our community, not panic or fear.

Throughout the gathering ban we will live-stream our Sunday services online at our regular times: 8:15, 9:45, 11:15am and 5:30pm at westsidelive.org. Financial gifts can be made online on our giving page.

Watch the live-stream of our services here.

Or watch on Facebook Live.

To receive automated updates regarding the closure via text from the church, please text “westside” to 474747.
