Students

Westwood Student Ministries (WSM) exist to equip and empower 3-12 grade students to live out an authentic and growing relationship with Jesus.

Live band. Relevant teaching. High-energy fun.

Wednesday nights are the perfect opportunity for students to make great friendships, get involved, be encouraged, and take steps in their faith. All grades 3-12 are invited to participate! On the first Wednesday of each month, we invite grades 3-5 to attend The Link, a program designed especially for them! And every Wednesday, we have two programs on the same evening – one geared toward high school students in Grades 9-12 and another for students in Grades 6-8. We’ve created a fun environment for students that features music, media, interactive elements, and a relevant message.

In addition to our weekly youth meeting, we also have small groups, retreats, serving projects, mission trips, and fun events. This includes a Middle School Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. We would love the opportunity to get to know you parents, and get your student connected! Stop by the office for more info, or email Jon Finke, our Student Ministries Pastor at jon.finke@westwoodstcloud.org.
