We’re glad you’re here.
Welcome to Westwood! Would you take a moment to let us know you are here on the connect card. We also invite you to share prayer requests. If you would like to make Westwood your church home and receive weekly eNews and praise/prayer reports, let us know through the connect card or email email@example.com.
Child and student opportunities.
Our KidCity programming takes place just down the hall from our auditorium. Cared for by friendly staff and screened volunteers, our Downtown classrooms are perfect for infants through age 5 and our Uptown classes are fun and engaging for those in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade. For more information, check out our family webpage. We also have a convenient family room located off the main lobby where you can take in the service in the event your child needs to get the wiggles out. We are currently asking KidCity attenders to RSVP to help with planning purposes and plan to do this through May. You can RSVP on our main website, or at the KidCity page.
Our student ministry meets on Wednesday nights at Westwood Church. Grades 5-12 are welcome for live worship, relevant teaching, fun games, and of course, food.
Middle School meets from 6:30-8:30pm while High School meets from 7-9pm. No need to preregister, simply enter at doors 1-2.
We believe that baptism, while not necessary for a saving faith in Jesus, is a natural next step for someone who is dedicated to following Him. If you are interested in baptism, let us know on the connect card or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a baptism service coming up on May 2.
Discover and Equip Classes.
April 18 – Discover Class | 10:30am at Westwood
April 25 – Equip Class | 10:30am at Westwood
Our Discovery Classes are a great way to connect with our church and others here at Westwood. In Discover, we’ll share the story of our church, our values, our doctrinal essentials and our mission, along with the distinctive characteristics that make our church such a good fit for the many people who call the St. Cloud area their home.
In Equip, you’ll better understand God’s plan for the local church, discover your spiritual gifts, and identify ways God designed you to serve best. At the end, we also provide an opportunity for you to take the next steps towards becoming formal members of Westwood. Sign up here.
May 2 – Parent Workshop | 9:00am
May 9 – Dedication Day | Both Services
Parent/Child Dedication at Westwood provides parents the opportunity to promise before God, their families, and their church to raise their children in a God-honoring way. Taking place on a Sunday morning, it’s a great celebration for families, who are encouraged to invite their extended families as well.
