The purpose of the GO PROJECT is to engage kids, students and their parents in serving others and making an impact on the world around them. James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” The goal of every project we are doing is     to make a difference through action. Through these experiences we anticipate “life changing” opportunities for every student that chooses      to get involved. There are a variety of trips and opportunities for all of our students in grades 6-12 that the student team has prayerfully and strategically planned. These include specifically designed trips and conferences for middle school and high school students, several international trips for students ready to take the next step, as well            as an opportunity to serve the Kids’ ministry at KidsGIG (Kids Growing     in God) this summer at Westside Family Church. There is something available for everyone, so take the next step in your faith by taking action in the GO PROJECT.
