Christmas at Westside
December 23 at 10am
Join us for Sunday service at 10am at Garfield Middle School on December 23. We will have a low-key, dialed-back service so that we may give all of our Sunday morning volunteers a break. Nursery and Children's Ministry classes will not be meeting, so children should attend service with their parents. Neighborhood (Grades 6-12) will also be on break for the holiday weekend.
If you are looking for a Christmas Eve service to attend, we invite you to consider Parkside Church's (Bainbridge) Christmas Eve service on Monday, December 24 at 4pm, 6pm, and 8pm.
*Please note, the church office will be closed on December 24-25, 2018, and December 31, 2018-January 1, 2019.
Projects & Resources
The Christmas Store
Two Ways to Serve
Join us on Monday, December 3, at 6pm at Chick-fil-A in Rocky River for a quick dinner and shopping excursion to help stock The Christmas Store, a collaboratively produced pop-up shop that provides a fun and dignified holiday shopping experience for Lakewood families in need. Our church leadership team has allocated financial resources to this effort from our annual budget which simply means that you do the shopping and we'll pay for the gifts!
Sign up to help staff the store on Wednesday, December 5, or Saturday, December 15. Two-hour shifts are available between 10am-2pm and we still have open spots available.
Jesus Storybook Bible Advent Reading Plan
Parents, we are excited to provide you with a fun and free resource to help you celebrate Advent with your family. “Advent: The Christmas Journey” is an activity booklet and reading plan that takes you through the season of Advent beginning on Dec. 2. With a picture for your children to color each day, along with a Bible story for you to read together, our hope is that by reading stories from the entirety of the Bible your family will see together that the coming of Jesus was prophesied and anticipated long before His arrival, and that the Christmas story doesn't begin with Mary and Joseph, but begins in Genesis 3. Pick up a copy at the Welcome Area on Sunday, or download the PDF below! You can buy a copy of the Jesus Storybook Bible on Amazon or your favorite online book retailer.
