"Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood." - Acts 20:28 ESV
Westside believes that a small group provides the optimal environment for the life change Jesus Christ intends for every believer. Significant relationships (including one-to-one) occur best in the context of a small group. A small group of believers who love one another with God's love will experience the life Christ promised at the deepest level possible. This love radically transforms them and demonstrates His power.
Evangelism is also best done in small groups. Mobilizing a whole army of lay ministers, an outlet for evangelism is expanded and is done on a friendship base. The Christian life is lived out in the small group. The gospel becomes WYSIWYG, which eliminates the fear of going to some mysterious church meetings for the non-believers.
In a small group, one can expect genuine and authentic Christian life. A variety of small groups are designed to meet the individual needs of believers, as well as the diverse needs of the body as a whole. In small groups, if one can open up oneself, one can experience:
Loving one another: caring for each other, community building and sharing
Loving God: Bible study, prayer, worship and growth in Christ's likeness
Loving others: evangelism, mission, service to the church and making a contribution in any group
A group that by design does not contribute to the above goals of spiritual maturity may well be a collection of Christians, but is not a successful small group.
XP3 and GZone are our middle school and high school ministry for grades 7 to 8 and grade 9 to 12 students, respectively. The mission of XP3 and GZone is to reach out to youth when they are about to explore the world and seek independence from parental guidance. We believe that it is essential that these young people have God's way as their guiding principle. It is also a fascinating and wonderful thing to accept Christ as their personal Saviour. They can tread through adolescence with the companionship of Jesus Christ.
Both XP3 Middle School & High School meet every week on Sunday between 10:00-11:15 am.
GZone meets every week on Friday from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.
Child minding is available during our English Service.Catered for young families with children between the ages of 2 - 7 years old. We meet every Sunday from 11:30 to 12:45 pm for children's worship.
