We are a church who gathers

Weekend gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church around the bread and cup, to pray, learn the Scriptures, and worship together as the people of God, before we scatter in Westside Communities all week long. Throughout the week we gather as brothers and sisters in similar stages of life and age groups to grow together in our discipleship to Jesus.

We are a church who scatters

Westside Communities are the primary way that we scatter during the week to be the people of Jesus in our city. In Westside Communities, we are on the mission of God, as the family of God, making disciples of Jesus. We also scatter throughout the world to plant churches, do justice, and impact the world globally and locally with the Gospel.
