Changes Are Coming

    CHANGES ARE COMING! Three weeks from today, September 10, we will make some changes. I never have believed in changing things just for the sake of change. I do believe there needs to be a good reason to change. And, I believe there are some good reasons for the changes that will soon take place. So, here is the what, and the why for the upcoming changes.

    CONNECTION GROUP START TIME will change from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The later start time will make it easier for everyone to be on time for the start of Connection Groups. The “stop time” will be 10:30 a.m. That means the entire time for Connection Groups will be shorter. Therefore, it will be imperative that groups start on time. Our goal will be to start on time and stop on time.

    MORNING WORSHIP START TIME will change from 10:25 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The “stop time” will continue to be noon or slightly before. That means the entire time for worship will be shorter. However, there will still be plenty of time for us to have a quality worship time. Westside loves music that lifts up Jesus and preaching that is Bible centered. Those two things will not change!

    PRESENTATION OF DECISIONS WILL CHANGE. We will introduce those who are making decisions for Christ to the church before taking them to the counseling room. This will allow us to celebrate what’s important. What’s important? People getting saved is important. People rededicating their lives to Jesus is important. People joining our church is important.

    I ENCOURAGE YOU TO SUPPORT THESE CHANGES. Be where you are supposed to be when you are supposed to be there. Remember, if you are on time, you are late, and if you are early, you are on time! And, if there is rejoicing in heaven when people make decisions for Jesus, there ought to be rejoicing at Westside as well.
