CHE Vision Seminar

CHE Vision Seminar

CHE_Email3.png

The CHE Vision Seminar uses small-group interaction, problem solving and self-discovery. It introduces the why and how of the CHE model as practitioners have used it in communities overseas. It increases understanding of the challenges, best practices, and potential results of the CHE process. It also explores how CHE principles can impact your own discipleship and neighborhood.

The training sessions will be held at Westside Family Church, Lenexa Campus in the Community Room on Friday, May 11 from 6:30 - 9:30pm, and Saturday, May 12 from 8:30am - 5:30pm.

The Guiding Principles of CHE: 

  • Development: CHE is a long-term process that respectfully develops the most valuable resource in the community—the people themselves.
  • Community Ownership: The community learns to do their own problem identification, prioritizing, solving and evaluation.
  • Wholistic & Integrated: Many community problems and their solutions are a blend of heart, mind, soul and body.
  • Multiplication: The CHE process is designed so each community can be an example and mentor to other communities. Disciples make disciples.

Jun

6:30 PM18:30

1st Wednesday Prayer Gathering

We are experiencing a unique reawakening to profound reality of God’s unconditional love. Connecting with the truth that God loved us first, and that his love always pursues us, has led to Westside’s first-love awakening.

Connecting to God in a relationship has always been central to Westside’s mission, and prayer is central to this authentic connection.

Westside’s 1st Wednesday Prayer Gathering is an expression of Westside’s desire to seek a deeper personal relationship with God. Westside’s monthly prayer gathering is anchored in scriptures that teach that: God wants us to pray; God hears our prayer; God answers prayer, and prayer draws us closer to God. Over the few past months, participants have learned fresh ways to connect with God’s heart through prayer, have experienced God’s love in prayer, and have honored God by expressing deep gratitude for his love.

Westside’s monthly 45-minute prayer gatherings follow the bible’s teaching on prayer, utilize Jesus’ model for God-honoring prayer, and enlist a variety of prayer topics and methods to encourage a more fruitful prayer life. Everyone is welcome to participate in Westside’s 1st Wednesday Prayer Gatherings to learn more about connecting with God through a deeper prayer life.

Women's Event | Let's Have Some Fun!

Are you searching for more meaningful relationships with other women? Would it benefit you to gain godly wisdom about raising children or making the most of your marriage from someone that has “been there and done that?” Would you have more peace if you could discuss the challenges of the workplace with other women in the same situation? 

Westside loves to make these connections happen. Our desire is for every woman to have at least two other women who know their story, share in their victories, and motivate them to live fully alive. 

Come join us as we gather women for a night of fun, fellowship and encouragement. We will be offering a choice of two simple pallet board creations to paint as you join in conversation and fellowship with other ladies. 

What | A time of fun, fellowship and conversation (oh, and delicious dessert)

March 21, 2018 at 6:30-8pm | WFC Lenexa South Sanctuary

If your child has accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then they may be ready to be baptized. Baptism is an opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and are now walking with Him. Because Jesus instructed us to be baptized, baptism is an act of obedience. While it is not necessary for salvation, it demonstrates submission to God. 

NOTE: Prior to being baptized all kids 1st-5th grade need to attend a baptism class. Classes will be February 25th at 11am in Room 201 or March 4th at 5pm in Room 201 at WFC Lenexa.
