Children's Ministry

Contact Children's Ministry

One of our greatest desires at Westside is to pass our faith on to the next generations. We work hard to make Westside a place where our children can grow up in a rich spiritual environment that will help their faith grow. Our children are blessed to be surrounded by a multi-generational community of believers committed to encouraging and walking alongside them on their spiritual journey. Our current kids program includes a nursery program (ages 0-2) and Kids Praise for ages 3 and up during worship and classes for all ages at 10:45am. For more information, contact our church office.

Student Ministry

The guiding principle of the Westside Student Ministry is that the only way to have our deepest needs met is through Jesus Christ. Our ministry is a place where students can connect with a sincere and authentic Christian community, grow in their faith through prayer, Bible study and small groups, serve others with grateful hearts and share the Good News of Jesus in our community. Throughout the year, we offer a safe place for teenagers to hang out, study God’s Word, serve the community, and grow closer with one another.

Join us every Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30pm at Westside for Koinonia, our weekly youth ministry gathering.

College & Young Adults

Westside is a great place for college students and young adults to grow in their faith and give back to their community. Westside is located just minutes from CSUB and we also have several students from Bakersfield College. This ministry focuses on helping students and young adults strengthen their faith in God through authentic Christian community. Each Sunday night we have our young adult life group that includes dinner and a discussion, and we also have special events and retreats throughout the year. If you are looking for a place to learn more about the Bible and make some great Christian friends, check out our young adult ministry!

Adult Ministry

Westside has ministries for adults of all ages! We are proud to offer classes and small groups for young adults, parents, men, women, and the Young at Heart! Shepherding Groups are at the heart of our adult ministry. These smaller groups meet at 10:45am, right after worship. Joining a Shepherding Group is a great way to get to know people on a more personal level while growing in your knowledge about God and how to practice that knowledge in daily life.

Missions

In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus teaches us to go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We take this commandment seriously, and we are proud to financially support several ministries around the world that work towards this goal. Some of the projects that Westside supports are the "Change for Children" program in Ethiopia, the "Let’s Love" ministry in Ukraine, Missions of Hope International, and the Palmares Church of Christ in Costa Rica. We also organize and support several other short-term missions projects throughout the world. To read more about our current missions projects, check out our Missions Ministry Updates. If you have an idea in mind for a missions project, contact Marshall Richert for more information!
