Welcome to Westwood



Guests often comment about the warm and friendly atmosphere they encounter at Westwood--and how they can feel the presence of God amid the people. We hope the information provided here will help alleviate any anxiety you might have about attending Westwood for the first time--and give you peace to focus on sharing your heart with God as you worship with us. 
 
Nursery
Westwood's nursery serves infants through pre-school and is staffed by both paid employees and volunteers. Hours on Sundays are from approximately 8:45 a.m. until after the 10:30 worship service. Nursery services are also provided during the Women's Tuesday Morning Bible Study group, as well as during other special activities as announced.
 
Sunday Morning Classes
Classes for all ages begin at 9 a.m.
 
Children pre-school through 5th grade attend God's Garden, a rotation-style Sunday School, where children learn about God through biblically-based drama, music, movies, art, computers, science, cooking and more. God's Garden is located upstairs.
 
Middle and High School students first meet in the sanctuary for praise songs, and then meet in classroom B and C just east of the sanctuary.
 
Currently, there are three adult classes at 9 a.m. - one meets in classroom A, one in classroom D, and one in the library.
 
Worship Services - 9:00, 10:30 a.m.
Early Worship is at 9 a.m. with music
led by a Praise Team. It is the more casual of the services, with songs
projected at the front of the sanctuary.
 
At the 10:30 worship service. there is
a traditional choir and a member of the church assists in leading worship. Readings, prayers or responses read in unison by the congregation are printed
in the worship bulletin and projected at the front of the sanctuary.
 
Children's Message, Children's Worship
During the 10:30 worship service, all children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a special Children's Message.
 
Following the Children's Message, K-3rd graders are invited to leave the sanctuary to attend Children's Worship in classroom D. Children's Worship is not offered on Family Worship Sundays, which are usually the 4th & 5th Sundays of the month, as well as on special occasions, such as Mother's Day and Father's Day. Check each week's worship bulletin for an announcement regarding Children's Worship.
 
Communion
Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month, as well as at special services, such as Maundy Thursday or Christmas Eve. During the 9 a.m. service, communion is served at the front of the sanctuary--those who are able and wish to partake are invited forward to receive the bread and cup. At the 10:30
service, the elements are served to the congregation. At both services, the bread is eaten when it is received; the cup is held until everyone has been served.
 
Fellowship Time
From 10 to 10:30 a.m. join us for Fellowship Time in the atrium. Pick up a cookie, and juice or coffee, and take the time to look around, visit with others, browse the items at the Information Desk, or just sit and relax in one of the casual seating areas.
 
 
 
Information Desk
The Information Desk is located in the atrium, just outside the main doors of the sanctuary. If you need directions to a room, would like more information about Westwood, or simply have a question, the volunteers staffing the Information Desk will be happy to help you.
