God has been stirring and moving in our hearts for quite some time to set aside a time where God’s people are able to come and worship Him here at Westside Church at our Dodge Road Campus. During these gatherings you will have an opportunity to respond to Jesus in worship through singing and music, and various other creative expressions of love towards Jesus. There is one agenda during these special nights, Glorifying our wonderful savior Jesus Christ. We hope you will join Westside Worship Musicians and other artists in an all-out love expression to God. Come ready to spend time in God’s presence, sing loud, and praise the Lord!
