What is Connect?
As an attendee at Westside: A Jesus Church, you are welcome to use and become part of Connect. When you log in, you will be able to view your own profile information, see the serve groups you are participating in, access your giving information, explore events you might be interested in, and much more! You can also update your profile information to accurately reflect your life at Westside. Please use this guide to help get you started.
Is my information private?
While our database contains anyone who gives or participates in Westside activities, and our website is public, our online community is private and only those who have usernames and passwords assigned to them can join in. After your request has been processed, you will be emailed login information. If you choose to participate you can decide whether your profile will be ‘listed’ to other online members or ‘unlisted.’
Unlisted profiles are not seen by anyone beyond our staff and key leaders. Listed profiles can be found by other members, but you can adjust who can see specific information in your profile from your privacy settings. To protect privacy, all profiles will default to unlisted unless you request to be listed.
How do I use Connect?
The best way to see what Connect is about is to visit the website and use your login and password to look around. If you decide you don’t want to be part of the community, you can, at any time, request to be deactivated and/or merely discontinue using it. We hope you will be able to get better connected by participating in groups or by finding a place to use your gifts to serve within our community.
What are the guidelines for use?

Even if it’s interesting, funny, or important, do not send unsolicited information. Do not add members to email lists outside Connect without prior consent.
Members who engage in discussions are not to ‘slam’ other groups, churches, or organizations or attempt to solicit members from outside groups or organizations. Keep the online discussions and emails personal, positive, and profitable. Discussions will be monitored.
