Easter Sunday, 9am
Be our Guest This Easter!
We look forward to meeting you this Easter! Please feel free to invite your friends, family and neighbors to join you on your visit.
Westside has been in the Bakersfield community for a long time…almost 50 years! We know that not everyone has had great experiences with church in the past, so we strive to be a welcoming church where coming together feels more like family than formal religion.
What Is Easter?
Easter is the Christian holiday celebrating the day Jesus was resurrected from the dead. While every day is an opportunity to worship God, there’s something truly special about celebrating Jesus on Easter Sunday!
When is It?
Easter is Sunday, April 21st. Our services begin at 9:00am and end around 10:30am. Immediately following services, we’ll have some fun activities in our Activity Center like free smoothies for your family, courtesy of our Route 56 (5th & 6th grade) Ministry!
Where Is It?
We are located at 7300 Stockdale Hwy, Bakersfield CA 93309. Click here for a map & directions.
What should I expect?
Our worship service will include reading scripture, prayers, worship songs, communion, a kids’ activity on stage, an offering to support our work and ministry, and a message from our guest speaker, Jeff Walling. To learn more about Westside, visit our about page.
Do I Need To RSVP?
Nope! Just show up on Easter and someone from our welcome team will point you in the right direction. If you’d like to get in touch with us before Easter, send us a message!
What to Expect
Join with a family of believers in worshipping God and celebrating our risen savior, Jesus Christ.
Stick around after services to enjoy some free coffee and smoothies and take pictures with the Easter bunny.
Come experience a church that feels like family. You’ll meet some amazing people at Westside!
