Community Groups at Westside

At Westside, we believe that life is better in community. That’s why we have small groups - a safe and welcoming space no matter where you are in your faith journey.

Small groups are where you can build meaningful relationships, interact with scripture, grow in your faith, and spark a greater passion for discipleship and mission in your neighborhood and network.

We see these groups as an extension of the church’s purpose (discipleship, community, and mission). We want to equip groups to be environments that form us in the way of Jesus. That includes reading scripture with Jesus as the main lens, forming stronger community that’s not fully possible in larger settings, and working out what it means to practice the way of Jesus in community and other parts of our life.

Fall 2023 Community Groups

We're slowly re-launching community groups!

We started small this October with a 7-week group in Ile Perrot, hosted at Jared and Amy van Donkersgoed's home.

Vision for 2024

We envision 7-8 week sessions, 3 times a year.

We trust that this rhythm will help more people engage, and encourage organic connection in between busy seasons. While we don’t want to be limited by the busy and burdened lifestyle many face in our culture, we also don’t want to add to it unwisely. Regardless, this isn’t the final vision for community groups. They will play a larger role in our discipleship path and mission. We will be learning and recalibrating as we move ahead.

What can you do?

Let us know if you’re interested in leading or participating in a group this winter!

And stay tuned for a survey to help us plan.
