It's Holy Week, and Easter is just around the corner! Our team has created several ways in which to prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus together this weekend.
SIGN UP FOR DONUT DAY- Thursday, April 9
We're releasing GOOD NEWS to our community this week through a massive donut delivery. Do you know someone who is disconnected from church, lonely, or searching for hope in this season? Visit wschurch.org/donutdayto request donuts, and we'll deliver a dozen (ding dong ditch-style) to the doorstep of your friend, along with an invite to Easter at West Side from YOU. Orders are due Wednesday, April 8, at 12:00 PM, and deliveries will take place Thursday, April 9. Sign up now! Want to invite multiple people to Easter? No problem! You may submit multiple requests, and we'll gladly deliver.
GOOD FRIDAY PRAYER EXPERIENCE- Friday, April 10
Later this week, we'll provide you with tools needed for a Good Friday prayer experience. We'll focus our attention on Jesus' final moments on the cross and follow his example of crying out to God. Audio and written prayer guides (for your personal use at home) will be posted on our social media pages and at wschurch.org/goodfriday. Also, a prayer area will be set up in West Side's parking lot between 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Once on campus, follow the parking lot signs, which will direct you to a parking spot and give instructions on how to access the audio prayer guide via radio or mobile device. We will not be distributing materials on-site (to maximize safety) and ask that you remain in your vehicle and maintain social distancing guidelines during the experience.
EASTER AT WEST SIDE- Saturday, April 11 & Sunday, April 12
The Christian faith rests on one epic event: Christ's resurrection. Though this season has been tough on humanity, Jesus’ resurrection still has the power to bring hope to the most broken of places. Make plans to join us for Easter at West Side ONLINE on Saturday, April 11, at 4:00 PM OR Sunday, April 12, at 8:45, 10:10, or 11:30 AM. As always, we'll stream our services at TryChurchOnline.com.
INVITE, INVITE, INVITE—All Week!
Looking for other ways to invite those you know to Easter at West Side? Head to wschurch.org/easter to download a sign to hang on your window or door… use our Facebook profile frame… or download a funny meme to share with a friend. While we always attempt to equip you with creative tools to introduce your friends to Jesus, there's no substitute for actually texting or calling a friend and saying, "I hope you'll join me for Easter at West Side." Let's bring some hope this week, Westsiders!
If you need additional help as you prepare for Easter, you're always welcome to reach out to our team at email@example.com.
We look forward to celebrating Easter with you all week long!
