Who We Are

West Side Presbyterian Church’s vision is to be a God-centered, welcoming community, open to all, transforming lives by sharing our faith, inspired by the power of the Holy Spirit as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Welcome to West Side Presbyterian Church!
We trust you will find in West Side a spiritual home that will enable you to grow your faith in God and a place to share your talents with others.

West Side offers a vibrant worship experience for individuals, families, youth and children. Our Sanctuary and Chapel offers opportunities to praise God, reflect and rejoice. Living and experiencing our faith through Music is an integral part of West Side’s ministry. When unable to attend worship, you can participate by Live Streaming Video and Podcasts.

Join a small group or participate in Sunday School for all ages to expand and share your faith. Participate in diverse Mission opportunities to serve others, and enjoy the company of new and old friends through these and other West Side community activities for children, youth and adults.
