Westside is Having an Anniversary

    WESTSIDE IS HAVING AN ANNIVERSARY! That’s right, Westside Baptist Church will soon be 60 years old! Our church was founded on the fourth Sunday of December in 1958. That means our church will be 60 years old on Sunday, December 23rd. Since that is a hard Sunday to have a party, we are going to celebrate on Sunday, January 6, 2019. As they say, “Save the Date!”

    WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE “60 Years of Preaching the Word” on Sunday morning, January 6, 2019. This church has been built on strong Bible preaching. I have invited former pastor, Dr. Harold Hudson, to bring the morning message. Bro. Harold was the pastor of Westside for 22 years and led the church during days of phenomenal growth.

    WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE “60 Years of Singing the Gospel” on Sunday evening, January 6, 2019. This church loves music that lifts up the Lord Jesus. I have invited former Minister of Music/Associate Pastor, Jim Law, to lead our congregation and choir in some inspiring gospel music on Sunday evening. Jim is a native of Jacksonville and was also here during some years of phenomenal growth.

    WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE by designating 2019 as “The Year of Evangelism” beginning January 6, 2019. Evangelism is in the DNA of this church. Nothing excites us more than seeing people get saved and baptized. What better way to launch “The Year of Evangelism” than to celebrate 60 years of evangelizing the lost?

    WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE with an all-church fellowship following the evening service on January 6, 2019. We will have a huge anniversary cake and other refreshments during a relaxing time in the Family Life Center.
