Fearless Celebration


When we selected Fearless as the theme for West Side’s two-year effort to generously advance Jesus’ mission, we didn’t know how important fearlessness would become for life in 2020. Today, as we approach the conclusion of Fearless, I hope we will live up to the word’s best meaning. Below you’ll read about part of our plan to help all of us do so intentionally.


Whether a portion of us are back on campus for Sunday worship, or not, we will celebrate what God has done (and will do) through Fearless on the first Sunday of December. You’ll want to participate because the day will include...

  • An inspiring video that will remind us how far we’ve come and how much we have to celebrate
  • Week 2 of Christmas At the Movies, which will feature an ALL-TIME CLASSIC Christmas film with some big takeaways
  • And (if we are back on campus), tours of the new worship center and the new concourse area, which remain under construction

Whether online or in-person, DON’T MISS DECEMBER 6 at West Side!


December has always been a generous month among Westsiders. But this time around, the final month of the year is even more significant because it is also the final opportunity for Westsiders to give toward our Fearless commitments.

Our Big Give days in December 2018 and 2019 were record-breaking. You can help make 2020’s Big Give all it needs to be by...

  • Reviewing your Fearless commitment and your giving to-date
  • Praying over your resources and asking God to lead you in your giving
  • Mailing a check or initiating your electronic gift by December 6

Each spring, farmers push seed into the ground at great effort and expense. Why? They trust God to bring new life from it. That’s why we’re preparing for West Side’s future during a pandemic. That’s why we are constructing a larger gathering space at a time when most people are avoiding large gatherings! 

This is the basis for how we are believing, behaving and giving: For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous.(2 Corinthians 9:10-11)
