BAPTISM

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Baptism is your 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.

Creating a Family Genogram

Creating a Family Genogram: A Next Step to Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

This two-part workshop will guide you as you create your own genogram, which is a visual representation of an extended family used by many counselors. The purpose of developing this special family tree is to understand the spiritual, emotional, relational and behavioral patterns passed down in a family from generation to generation. 

In session one, you will learn how to build a genogram, which you will begin during the workshop and complete on your own before meeting again for session two. In session two, you will learn how to describe and highlight the patterns you see moving through the generations of your family. At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be given next steps to use your genogram as you prayerfully consider which family which patterns you would like to leave in the past, and which patterns you would like to do your part in preserving for the generations to come. Cost is $5.00 per person for materials.

Session 1: May 10, 630pm. WFC Lenexa, Community Room

1st Wednesday Prayer Gathering

1st Wednesday Prayer Gathering

  • WFC Lenexa | South Sanctuary

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.
