God is on the Move

This past Sunday, Pastor Tim shared a vision for God's work through Westside. He focused on three areas: church planting, leadership development, and our building.  Alone, each is a major step in faith for our church.  All three collectively create a significant milestone for the mission of our church.

God is on the move in Manatee County. The gospel will be shared through new churches in our county and more lives changed forever. Those who are hungry and homeless are met where they are and with the love and dignity provided to all children of our father. Westside digs our roots in deeper by developing biblical based leadership. Finally, improvements to our footprint in the neighborhood will set Westside up to be good neighbors for the next sixty years.

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.  And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” - Mark 11:22‭-‬25 NIV

We are asking you to join us in faith, the faith that can move a mountain. Pray for our community in Manatee County and specifically at Westside and through the missions we partner. Clear the path for our prayers by forgiving those in your life whom you have yet to forgive, just as Christ forgave you.

We can certainly move these mountains. We can make the change for God's kingdom. If the collective heartbeat of Westside believes, prays, forgives, and let's God do the work.  We will plant churches, develop leaders, and set up those who come after us with a building to serve God's people.  We will Share Jesus, Show Love, and Build Believers.

Be Blessed and Be A Blessing,
