Worship at West Side

Sundays are busy at West Side!

Chapel Worship begins at 8:45 a.m. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood Pulsifer Chapel with light, and there is a palpable energy here, sending participants out into the world with renewed faith and hope.

Traditional Worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary, where stained glass, a full choir, pipe organ and a traditional Presbyterian liturgy help us connect with God and the world. Children from preschool through 7th grade participate in Sunday School.

Contemporary Worship is offered at 5:15 p.m. on the lower level in DePhillips Hall for those seeking an informal, family-oriented experience featuring a full band, contemporary Christian music and an interactive liturgy.

We hope that one or more of our worship services inspire you on your spiritual journey.

Beginning July 1, 2018, all three worship services will take place in the morning:

8:15 a.m. – Chapel Worship

9:00 a.m. – Contemporary Worship

10:15 a.m. – Traditional Worship

 

Traditional Worship

Our Traditional service takes place in the beautiful Sanctuary, dedicated in 2006 and artfully designed to affirm the light of God and the warmth of gathering with God’s people. The heart of this service is Biblical and relevant, with passionate preaching; inspiring music led by our talented musicians and supported by our Nichols and Simpson organ; and sacred space to pray, reflect on the issues of the day and be readied to serve as God’s instruments in the world. If you would like to experience our Traditional worship service, please Click to go to Videostreaming.

Contemporary Worship

Join us for our Contemporary service on Sundays at 5:15 p.m. on the lower level in DePhillips Hall. It is an informal, family-friendly, immersive worship experience where you can join others who are searching for meaning and reaching for more out of life. Come as you are, and leave inspired.

 

Music at West Side

Since the first service in October 1912, the West Side congregation has been grounded in its belief that the highest calling of music is to praise God.

Music, carefully chosen, carefully prepared, prayerfully offered, is intricately woven into our liturgical life. Adults, youth and children meet weekly to prepare for worship through singing choirs, handbell choirs and instrumental ensembles.

Christian Education and music education are a part of the fabric of each rehearsal in the West Side Choir School. In its 100 years, the music ministry of this congregation has only changed leadership four times, testimony to the love for music and the arts that characterize this people of God.

West Side Concert Series

The West Side Concert Series is an outreach ministry of West Side Presbyterian Church. Click here to visit the Concert Series website.

No tickets are required for this free concert. However, a free-will offering will be taken during intermission. A suggested donation of $10 per person is recommended. The West Side Concert Series depends on the support of its benefactors and audiences’ financial donations. There is ample free parking and child care is provided for preschool age children.

The Arts At West Side

West Side has a rich tradition of incorporating music and the arts into our spiritual journey. When the artist touches canvas with a brush, when the actor transcends reality, when song expresses the deepest stirrings of the soul, we are moved and, at once, more aware of God’s presence in our lives.

The Gallery at West Side

West Side has its own community art gallery, lit with natural light from the skylights above. Sales of work exhibited at the Gallery means a 25% donation to the church. The Gallery operates under the auspices of the Fine Arts Guild of the Worship and Music Council, whose mission is:

  • To provide members and visitors with an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy a variety of forms of artistic expression.
  • To encourage local artists and to inform others about them by providing a display venue.
  • To continue to foster an appreciation for artistic expression within West Side and as an outreach to the greater community.
  • To show how God so loves us as to enable the creation of such enriching artistic expression, thus providing us with greater reason and opportunity to offer thanks and praise.

Exhibitions are chosen by a committee of members, chaired by John Ianacone. To protect the works of art that have been entrusted to us for the duration of each exhibit, no food or beverages are permitted in the gallery. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

25% of all sales are donated to West Side.
