Women of Westside includes a variety of wonderful ministries organized by women for the women of our church and community.
Lifeline: "Lifeline" Bible studies for women meet each week during the school year on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 at Westside where childcare is provided and Monday evenings at 7:00 in a home. These helpful times encourage women of all ages and backgrounds in their relationship with the Lord and with one another through fellowship, prayer and the study of God's Word. See the calendar for times and locations.
Refresh: "Refresh" provides varied opportunities for women to get together at fun and casual events in order to get to know one another, deepen friendships, build lasting relationships and invite friends.
Summer Connections: Since many activities take a summer break, Connections offers women an opportunity to gather for fellowship once a week. It's a casual atmosphere with opportunities for women to engage with one another through Bible study, prayer and relationship-building.
Women's Retreats: Women get away from their normal routine by joining us at one of our fall women's retreats. These retreats include times of practical Bible teaching taught by guest speakers and encouraging, refreshing times of interacting with other women.
Christmas Brunch and Bazaar: This elegantly decorated Christmas event, held the first Saturday of December, is one of our favorite and most attended events of the year. There is delicious food, an opportunity to shop for gifts at a Christmas bazaar, Christmas music and a special program. Women keep coming back year after year, and they bring their neighbors and friends.
TLC (Tender Loving Care): We have the opportunity to express love, care and support for one another in times of joy as well as sadness. TLC involves hospital visits, cards, Christian books, meals and flowers to those who are sick or otherwise hurting. New babies and women who are newer to the fellowship are welcomed with special gifts.
Other Special Events: The women's ministry team loves to plan other special events. Past activities have included Spring ladies' teas, mother-daughter events, fashion shows, fall harvest parties, Valentine's dinners and desserts.
