Loving God: A Bible Study on Deuteronomy
with Pastor Ralph

resumes Feb. 9, 2022
Wednesdays, 9:00 - 10:00 am
IN PERSON in WS North Sanctuary -and-
ONLINE via Facebook Live

Here’s your opportunity to join Pastor Ralph for his Bible study on Loving God – A Bible Study of Deuteronomy: Wednesdays, 9:00 – 10:00 am, WS North Sanctuary (615 Wright Ave – Richland). Doors will open at 8:45 am.

An easy argument can be made that Deuteronomy is the most important book of the Old Testament. The book represents the last words of Moses, three extended speeches where he calls the people to love God. More importantly, these are the words of God, and they are given to his people in love. They both tell us the way of love and provide the foundational promises that God is committed to working in and through His people to bring about His saving purposes. Over all of this, Deuteronomy reveals the loving nature of the one true God. For all its significance and all of its richness, it is altogether possible that you have never heard a sermon on Deuteronomy. In this study, we are going to try to make up the deficit. 

We will continue to live stream the Bible study on Wednesdays from 9:00 – 10:00 am as well. Tune in live on Facebook – you can watch even if you don’t have a Facebook account. The video will also be posted HERE after the livestream is done – or click at the top of our webpage on “Videos” then “Bible Study with Pastor Ralph” and “Loving God”. You can also view all past videos for this study.

Adult Sunday School - begins Feb. 13, 2022
Jeremiah: A Prophet for God's People Then and Now
Facilitators: Gene Carbaugh, Grace Ely, Will Shaw
9:30-10:45 am
IN PERSON in WS South Room 306 (2-story bldg)
ONLINE via Zoom (invite via registration)

Jeremiah was sent to pursue a nation that was running away from God.  It is God’s last-minute prophecy to his people and shows their rejection of the Law and refusal to follow prophets. While bluntly stating the certainty of God’s judgment because of sin, it also includes the tenderness and eternal love of God. The longest of the prophetic books, its organization and combination of history, biography, and prophecy make it challenging to study. Yet more is known about Jeremiah than any other prophet.  Join us as we discover Jeremiah, his mission, message, and hope.

Adult Sunday School - begins Sept. 12, 2021
GAP - Get Acquainted Place
11 am-12 pm in WS North Library (single-story bldg)

GAP – Get Acquainted Place – has been an informal, relational “entry point” for newcomers to West Side Church for many years. All are welcome, whether you’re new or … well, not new to our church family! We usually enjoy a time of fellowship and sharing along with a short inspirational reading followed by discussion and prayer.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small communities (8-12 people) who meet regularly (weekly usually) for short seasons (6 to 12 months). They foster community on a deeper level than is possible through just Sunday worship services. Life Group members share life, pray together, encourage one another in following Jesus as our leader and savior. 

Each group has a unique flavor but all aim to nurture, encourage, and experience personal fellowship, Bible study, prayer, care, and service together. Everyone is encouraged to join a Life Group. They meet at various times during the week; in people’s homes and even some on the church campus.
