The Baptism class is for those interested in finding out more about baptism and/or wanting to be baptized. This, along with attendance at the MEMBERS class, is a requirement for all wanting to be baptized at Westside. This is a one-day class (about 1.5 hours in length) and runs periodically throughout the year. Listen to the message about baptism below for more on what we believe about baptism.
God has given Christian parents the privilege and responsibility of raising their children to know and love Jesus Christ, but the church is here so that every follower has a community of believers around them for help and support. So, the main job of Family Ministries at Westside Church is to help and support parents as they seek to lead their family in the ways of the Lord. These biblical parenting classes are designed to do just that.
Foundations introduces people to the narrative of the Bible and the ways in which it re-orients our lives, minds, and hearts around it. This class will challenge skeptics and believers alike to examine what it is they believe and why it is they believe it, and then proceed with an examination of the Christian worldview. While this class is designed specifically for new, young, and 'not yet’ believers, it will also be beneficial for those who are desiring to gain greater clarity on the role of God's Word in their lives.
Before investing time, talent or treasure into anything, you should know what in fact you are investing in. The Members Class exists to help you gain a clear picture of Westside.

Preparing for Marriage
This is for dating couples, those considering marriage, and those who are newly engaged. There are 3 main components to the course; class time, homework, and mentor meetings.
Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and most importantly, you need grace.
