Westside Christian Church

This is a place where people have gathered for one purpose: to honor God. None of us are perfect. You won't find any "Super Saints" here. What you will find is a group of people who are doing the best they can to pursue God and obey His will. If you are looking for perfect people in a perfect church, this is not the place to look.

One Big Story - Week 1 You know, the two most common things parents hear when they’re putting their kids to bed are… “Can I have a drink?” and “Can you read me a story.” It’s been said that our need to hear stories…in some ways…is a natural part of our make-up as humans. And just as water quenches our thirst…stories somehow have a way of hydrating our minds. That’s why we dream in stories. That’s why, when Lucy and I go to see the grandkids, they want to set on our laps so that we can read them a story. You see, stories have a way of coming into our lives and grabbing a hold of our hearts. And the interesting thing is this, we look everywhere to find them except the one place that has the most incredible stories that you could ever imagine...God’s Word.  This Sunday, June 14th, I’m starting our new summer series called, “One Big Story”, that will start in Genesis and go through the book of Revelation. It will give us an overview of the Bible, not in depth, but a good overview that will help us to discover our story as we unpack God’s story. This will be our summer series for the next 3 summer sessions.  Can’t wait to dive in this Sunday @ 10am... Jerry

As a Pastor, this is uncharted territory for me and we are doing our best to try and stay connected as a church family and we'll try to come up with more ways for us to do that as the days and weeks move forward. So with that said, one of the things that I've been wresting with is what to share with you on Sundays. So far, I've followed God's leading and I hope that it's been a blessing to you. But, the last 2 days, God's been leading me back to a sense of normalcy. I think, it's as much for me as it is for you. So, God lead me to a series that the "Village Church" did that was created from Glenn Packiam's new book, Blessed Broken Given and I will begin this series this Sunday morning March 29th. Here's a preview... "Throughout Scripture, we discover that nothing is as common as it seems, not even bread. On the night that He was handed over to suffer and die, He took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to His disciples as a picture of His body being given for the life of the world. Over the next 4-weeks, we’ll discover how our story becomes sacred in the hands of Jesus, we’ll discover that life, like bread, isn’t as ordinary as it may seem." I'm looking forward to sharing this with you starting this Sunday. Love you all... Jerry

Hey Westside Family and Friends... As of a couple of days ago, we knew there was a possibility that the Governor would put a restriction on the size of gatherings to 100 and above. That mandate came through late this afternoon which means for the immediate future, we will not be gathering for worship at Westside. Instead, we will live stream the service each week @ 10am until this restriction is lifted. I know this is not the ideal, but it does give us a chance to be the church in our homes and neighborhoods. I’ll share more on this tomorrow during our live stream as well as this coming week. If you would like to take communion here at the church, I will stay around after our live stream to provide it for you. We will be serving communion between 11:15 - 12:15pm. Again, I know this is a tough time for everyone that’s why I felt led to change what I was preaching on and focus on the topic... “Dealing with Adversity”. I love these words that’s found in Hebrews 4:16... “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Also, here is a link to our online giving portal from our website: http://giving.westside.cc/ Please share the post so that we can reach everyone that we need to! Love you all... Jerry

2020-02-23 - From Death to Life - Week 01 New Sermon Series Begins This Sunday, "From Death to Life"... After the movie, “The Passion of Christ” came out, a lady by the name of Madeleine Evans wrote... “Personally...I have no problem believing what Jesus did, but I want no responsibility for it. I will pay for my own sins...after all...I usually do...thank you very much. I would never want anyone to go through so much suffering for me.” Like so many people today, she didn’t understand the depths of her sin if she thought she could in any way pay for them. You see, to think that we could pay the penalty for our own sin to the point that God would accept our efforts, is an idea that is totally foreign to what the Bible teaches. The problem is, there’s a difference in how we view our sin and how God views it and what we have to understand is, God’s view is the one that counts. In Ephesians 2:1-7, Paul tells us this important truth; “You can’t save you, but Jesus can!” That’s why, starting this Sunday morning, February 23rd, we begin a new 6-week series called, “From Death to Life”. We’ll discover, not only what God has done to take us from death to life, but we’ll also discover what our response to this new life should be. I hope that you’ll make the next 6-weeks a priority on your Sunday morning schedule. And don’t forget to bring someone with you. Jerry

Hey all... We had another amazing Sunday last week. If you couldn’t be here, Bradley and Sonja Medford made Westside their home and we got to watch as Bradley baptized Sonja into Jesus. It was awesome! God just keeps doing some pretty awesome things through us here at Westside and I’m thankful that He called me to be a part of His amazing work. It’s going to be so exciting to see what He has in store for us on Sunday. This week we will end our series through Psalm 23 as we look at verse 6 (NCV), “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” This one verse is packed with enough amazing stuff to change your outlook as well as the rest of your life. I can’t wait to unpack all that it has for us. I look forward to worshipping with each and every one of you tomorrow morning @ 10am. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

2020-02-09 - Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life - Week 05 Hey all... We had another amazing Sunday last week. God just keeps doing some pretty awesome things through us here at Westside and I’m thankful that He called me to be a part of His amazing work. It’s going to be so exciting to see what He has in store for us tomorrow. This week we will continue unpacking Psalm 23 as we look at verses 4-5 (NCV), “Even if I walk through a very dark valley, I will not be afraid, because you are with me. Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me. You prepare a meal for me in front of my enemies.” The reality of life is this; the world we live in can be a very dark, scary and stormy place to live. But in spite of that, I believe God wants to remind us that in the midst of the scary storms and dark valleys of life...hope is found in Jesus, our Shepherd. Every week of this series has been amazing but this week, is one you don’t want to miss. You may not be going through a valley right now, but I guarantee you that you will at some point. It’s a part of life. Also, you probably know someone who is, so reach out and invite them to come with you. I can’t wait to unpack this with you tomorrow morning @ 10am. Here’s what’s happening at Westside... • Our new “Community Group” got off to a great start last week. They meet on Sunday mornings @ 9am. If you haven’t got plugged into a group yet, this would be a great one to start with. • Our “Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study” will be meeting this coming Saturday morning @ 7:30am. There’s still room for you to get plugged in. • WS Students: Every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks, we will travel as a youth group to join Jefferson, Poplar Springs, & First Christian youth groups for a Wednesday night service. It will be fun games and a short lesson about the Grow devotions we are going through. We will leave Westside @ 6:30 PM and return between 8:30 PM. • Our new “Sunday Morning Kid’s Program” kicks off Sunday, February 23rd @ 10am. Tori could still use some volunteers to help with our growing “Kid’s Ministry”. • There’s still time to get plugged into one of our other “Community Groups” as well. Besides our new one, we have one that meets right after the morning service at the back of the worship center and a Wednesday night group that meets at the church at 6:30pm. I look forward to worshipping with each and every one of you tomorrow morning. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

2020-02-02 - Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life - Week 04 Hey Westside... Guess what God did? He blew us away again. Another full house, more new people, and an incredible worship service. It’s going to be so exciting to see what He has in store for us this Sunday. This week we will continue unpacking Psalm 23 as we look at the last part of verse 3, “He guides me along the right paths for His namesake.” Now, this tells me 2 things; first of all, there is a right path that we are to be on and secondly, it’s not about us but it’s about Him. He’s the one who is supposed to get all the glory. I can’t wait to unpack this short phrase with you this Sunday morning. Here’s what’s happening at Westside... · Our new “Community Group” begins this Sunday morning February 2nd @ 9am. If you haven’t got plugged into a group yet, this would be a great one to start with. · Our “Tuesday Night Ladies Bible” will be meeting this coming Tuesday night at 6:45pm.

2020-01-26 - Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life - Week 03 Author Philip Yancey says that, “adversities”, “hardships and the “struggles of life” are “the gifts nobody wants.” And just the thought of these, can create fear, tension and stress that at times...is hard to overcome. Unfortunately, this is the reality that we all live in today. Sometimes we are going to go through times of struggles and adversities where our faith will be tested, and we will wonder if God is on vacation. And whether you want to believe me or not, even though that’s how we feel, we can still find hope. In fact, there’s a great example of this in the Old Testament from the life of David. During a dark season of life, when his son was trying to take his life, David discovered hope. It was during this time that he wrote Psalm 23 and his hope was found as he wrote verse 1... “The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need!” This Sunday morning January 12th, we’re going to begin a 6-week journey called, “Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life”. This journey will hopefully help us to change how we respond to life’s struggles as we dive deeply into the depths of Psalm 23. Let me encourage you to get the word out and invite friends, family, co-workers, the guy or gal on the street...actually anyone and everyone you meet. Can't wait to dive into this amazing Psalm.

Hey All... If you weren’t able to be with us on “Christmas Eve”, you missed an incredible service. God just blew us away with 131 in attendance...it was amazing! This week we are blessed to have my son and family with us, and my son will be bringing the message from God’s Word. Can’t wait to hear him. I know that a lot of you are traveling this weekend but if you are back or are still in town, I hope that you’ll come and worship with us. I believe God is going to do some amazing things in and through our lives. So, let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

2019-12-22 - The Cast of Christmas - Week 04 Hey All... It was so good to be back with everyone last week and I’m very excited about what we will be focusing on tomorrow as we continue in our series called, “The Cast of Christmas”. Let me encourage you to prepare for the message by reading Matthew 2:1-12. As you do, ask yourself this question, “What was the number one reason that these “Magi” or “Wise Men” traveled so far in order to see Jesus?” Here’s what’s coming up this week... “Our Christmas Eve Service” on December 24th @6pm. We would love for you to join us as we share together in a candlelight communion service, a time of worship and devotion and a time of fellowship with hot chocolate and some awesome Christmas treats. We look forward to seeing you and don’t forget to invite someone to join you. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

Hey Westside... Lucy and I made it back safely from Cape Town, South Africa. We had an amazing time with family and were able to see some amazing places and some amazing things. As I mentioned last week, Cape Town is an area of extremes. You have the very wealthy but also the extremely poor. Some of the Townships, which are made up of tin shacks, are overloaded with people as well as violence. But in spite of that, as you drive through those areas, you still see kids smiling and playing and enjoying the life they have. Seeing that, helps me to put things in perspective. I’m excited to be back with you all this week and I hope that everyone will make it a priority to be here. I really want to be able to worship with all our Westside family. We will continue in our series called... “The Cast of Christmas”. This week we will look at the part the shepherds played. I can’t wait to share this powerful message with each and every one of you. This is one of those messages that has the potential to be life changing. We are still collecting $25.00 Target gift cards and stuff for gift bags for the “Single Mom’s Ministry, Thrive”. See Tori for what you can provide for the gift bags. We still have a couple of families to adopt for Christmas. If you would like to share with one, please let me know. Also, for all our men... Breakfast and Bible Study will be next Saturday, December 21st, @7:30am at the church. Let’s do our best to pack out Westside tomorrow morning @ 10am and don’t forget to reach out and bring someone with you. Love you all... Jerry

2019-12-08 - The Cast of Christmas - Week 02 (with Josh Oldfield) Good evening church! Jerry Jones preached an awesome sermon last week for the eighth & final week of our sermon series This Means War - The Reality of Spiritual Warfare. If you missed it, just hit our website (http://westside.cc/messages) or your podcast app of choice (https://anchor.fm/westside), & get caught up on any of our recent messages. This Sunday, we get to experience the first message in our new series, The Cast of Christmas, as we look forward to this special time of year. As we kick the series off on December 1, our own Steve Bufkin will be bringing us God’s word & Garron B. Rogers has an amazing worship service planned for us, as he does every week. On December 8, for week two, we'll dive into the word with our own Josh Oldfield. For the remaining weeks of the series, Jerry will be back with & leading us. Like Jerry said on Sunday, even though he’ll be gone for the next two weeks, let’s continue to pack Westside out & let God blow us away as we kick this series off. Please continue to pray for Jerry & Lucy for safety & for a blessed time with family as they travel over the coming weeks. I pray that we never take for granted how blessed we are as a church family to have them both & that we make sure they know it. Westside is such an amazing place & it’s so great to see what God is doing through our church. Also pray for pastors & churches everywhere during the Christmas season as we look forward to celebrating the birth of our Lord, & to pointing people everywhere to Jesus. This is a great time of year to invite your friends & family to join us. Looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday @ 10am. Have a blessed week! Bradley

Hey All... As I say every week, it was another amazing service. God's Spirit has really been moving in and through His church here at Westside and it's such a blessing to be a part of what He is doing. Here are some highlights from this past Sunday... • We had 2 new families make Westside their home; Brian & Bonita Stanley and Tina Phillips. • We packed 76 boxes for Operation Christmas Child and devoured 12 large pizzas in the process. Thank you so much church, you’re amazing... • All the food plus extra came in and is being delivered today to Lewisville Elementary school. This food plays a huge part in feeding 90 families for Thanksgiving. Thank you so much church, again, you’re amazing... Here’s what’s coming up... • Our Kid’s Ministry is sponsoring a “Parent’s Night Out”, tonight, November 22nd from 5:30-9pm. The kids will be enjoying dinner, games, worship and other activities. Contact Tori for all the info. • Don’t forget to unite with me in prayer tomorrow night @ 6pm as we cover the message, our staff and our church in prayer during our series on spiritual warfare. So, set aside a few minutes wherever you may be to pray for God’s protection and our growth in Jesus. • We have a great opportunity this holiday season to reach out with the love of Jesus and help others who desperately need it. Here's a couple opportunities for this week... 1. There's a family that lost almost everything in a house fire who is a neighbor of one of our families as well as, their kids go to school with some of our kids. We have the opportunity to help provide the money for their kids to have school lunches. This would be a huge encouragement to these parents. 2. We also have a few families in our church that need help as well. The holiday season is a tough time and we want to be a support to them. So, this Sunday morning, November 24th, we will be taking up a special love offering to relieve some of the stress and help with these needs. If you bring a check, write Community Outreach in the memo line. • Our next “Women’s Bible Study” will be meeting this coming Tuesday night, November 26th at 6:45pm at the church. This is our last week in our series called, "This Means War...the Reality of Spiritual Warfare" and our focus will be on unpacking the armor of God. To prepare your hearts for what we'll be unpacking this week, I want to encourage you to read Ephesians 6:10-18. As I mention every week, these are great opportunities to be reaching out to family, friends, co-workers, actually, anyone you meet and invite them to join you on this incredible journey that God is taking us on. Let's do our best to pack out Westside again this Sunday morning @ 10am... Jerry
