Description

This is a place where people have gathered for one purpose: to honor God. None of us are perfect. You won't find any "Super Saints" here. What you will find is a group of people who are doing the best they can to pursue God and obey His will. If you are looking for perfect people in a perfect church, this is not the place to look. If you are struggling with life and are looking for God, then you found the right place. Come enjoy a cup of coffee, join in uplifting worship, and hear a Biblical message that is relevant to your everyday life.

2020-01-26 - Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life - Week 03 Author Philip Yancey says that, “adversities”, “hardships and the “struggles of life” are “the gifts nobody wants.” And just the thought of these, can create fear, tension and stress that at times...is hard to overcome. Unfortunately, this is the reality that we all live in today. Sometimes we are going to go through times of struggles and adversities where our faith will be tested, and we will wonder if God is on vacation. And whether you want to believe me or not, even though that’s how we feel, we can still find hope. In fact, there’s a great example of this in the Old Testament from the life of David. During a dark season of life, when his son was trying to take his life, David discovered hope. It was during this time that he wrote Psalm 23 and his hope was found as he wrote verse 1... “The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need!” This Sunday morning January 12th, we’re going to begin a 6-week journey called, “Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life”. This journey will hopefully help us to change how we respond to life’s struggles as we dive deeply into the depths of Psalm 23. Let me encourage you to get the word out and invite friends, family, co-workers, the guy or gal on the street...actually anyone and everyone you meet. Can't wait to dive into this amazing Psalm.

I know that a lot of you are traveling this weekend but if you are back or are still in town, I hope that you’ll come and worship with us. I believe God is going to do some amazing things in and through our lives. So, let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you.

If you are looking for a place to celebrate Jesus tomorrow evening for Christmas Eve, we would love you to be our guest at Westside Christian Church.

2019-12-22 - The Cast of Christmas - Week 04 Hey All... It was so good to be back with everyone last week and I’m very excited about what we will be focusing on tomorrow as we continue in our series called, “The Cast of Christmas”. Let me encourage you to prepare for the message by reading Matthew 2:1-12. As you do, ask yourself this question, “What was the number one reason that these “Magi” or “Wise Men” traveled so far in order to see Jesus?” Here’s what’s coming up this week... “Our Christmas Eve Service” on December 24th @6pm. We would love for you to join us as we share together in a candlelight communion service, a time of worship and devotion and a time of fellowship with hot chocolate and some awesome Christmas treats. We look forward to seeing you and don’t forget to invite someone to join you. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you.

Hey Westside... Lucy and I made it back safely from Cape Town, South Africa. We had an amazing time with family and were able to see some amazing places and some amazing things. As I mentioned last week, Cape Town is an area of extremes. You have the very wealthy but also the extremely poor. Some of the Townships, which are made up of tin shacks, are overloaded with people as well as violence. But in spite of that, as you drive through those areas, you still see kids smiling and playing and enjoying the life they have. Seeing that, helps me to put things in perspective. I’m excited to be back with you all this week and I hope that everyone will make it a priority to be here. I really want to be able to worship with all our Westside family. We will continue in our series called... “The Cast of Christmas”. This week we will look at the part the shepherds played. I can’t wait to share this powerful message with each and every one of you. This is one of those messages that has the potential to be life changing. We are still collecting $25.00 Target gift cards and stuff for gift bags for the “Single Mom’s Ministry, Thrive”. See Tori for what you can provide for the gift bags. We still have a couple of families to adopt for Christmas. If you would like to share with one, please let me know. Also, for all our men... Breakfast and Bible Study will be next Saturday, December 21st, @7:30am at the church. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

Hey All... As I say every week, it was another amazing service. God's Spirit has really been moving in and through His church here at Westside and it's such a blessing to be a part of what He is doing. Here are some highlights from this past Sunday... • We had 2 new families make Westside their home; Brian & Bonita Stanley and Tina Phillips. • We packed 76 boxes for Operation Christmas Child and devoured 12 large pizzas in the process. Thank you so much church, you’re amazing... • All the food plus extra came in and is being delivered today to Lewisville Elementary school. This food plays a huge part in feeding 90 families for Thanksgiving. Thank you so much church, again, you’re amazing... Here’s what’s coming up... • Our Kid’s Ministry is sponsoring a “Parent’s Night Out”, tonight, November 22nd from 5:30-9pm. The kids will be enjoying dinner, games, worship and other activities. Contact Tori for all the info. • Don’t forget to unite with me in prayer tomorrow night @ 6pm as we cover the message, our staff and our church in prayer during our series on spiritual warfare. So, set aside a few minutes wherever you may be to pray for God’s protection and our growth in Jesus. • We have a great opportunity this holiday season to reach out with the love of Jesus and help others who desperately need it. Here's a couple opportunities for this week... 1. There's a family that lost almost everything in a house fire who is a neighbor of one of our families as well as, their kids go to school with some of our kids. We have the opportunity to help provide the money for their kids to have school lunches. This would be a huge encouragement to these parents. 2. We also have a few families in our church that need help as well. The holiday season is a tough time and we want to be a support to them. So, this Sunday morning, November 24th, we will be taking up a special love offering to relieve some of the stress and help with these needs. If you bring a check, write Community Outreach in the memo line. • Our next “Women’s Bible Study” will be meeting this coming Tuesday night, November 26th at 6:45pm at the church. This is our last week in our series called, "This Means War...the Reality of Spiritual Warfare" and our focus will be on unpacking the armor of God. To prepare your hearts for what we'll be unpacking this week, I want to encourage you to read Ephesians 6:10-18. As I mention every week, these are great opportunities to be reaching out to family, friends, co-workers, actually, anyone you meet and invite them to join you on this incredible journey that God is taking us on. Let's do our best to pack out Westside again this Sunday morning @ 10am... Jerry

We’re starting a new series called, “This Means War...The Reality of Spiritual Warfare”. And I know that for a lot of believers…this topic of spiritual warfare is uncharted territory, but it is territory that needs to be discovered. I want you to know that through this series, I want to help us understand that there’s a war going on inside each and every one of us…a spiritual battle that’s being played out every day of our lives and if you don’t believe me, all you have to do is look around and you will see the results. But also, I want to help us to understand that this battle we’re in, is fought from the inside out through the power of the Holy Spirit and our victory has already been won on the cross of Jesus. You don’t have to worry, you don’t have to give in, and you don’t have to live a defeated life. We have the promise that “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.” So, plan now to join us for this amazing series.

You can also find Robin Zimmerman’s message at the Westside campus today in our feed here as well.

Matthew 22:37-40 (NLT) Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
