Welcome to West Side Church!

Drawing people from across the Tri-cities, we are a church family living in response to God’s love for us given in Jesus Christ. Loving Jesus, we strive to follow Him by loving God, loving people, and serving the world in His name.

We meet each weekend at 615 Wright Ave, Richland, WA where you can join us at one of our three services.  Whether you are an early riser or have a specific affection for traditional or modern music styles you can find a worship service that’s right for you. We offer programs for children and students as well as learning for adults and a warm welcome to all. You can find community on Sunday morning as well as through church-wide opportunities such as life groups, local and global service, classes, and events.

We are a family church where many generations interact, share, learn from and bless each other. We are on an adventure of following Jesus and being His church together.

Browse our web site for opportunities to learn or volunteer…listen to a sermon…or let us know if there’s a way we can help you. We hope you will join us sometime soon!

What to expect

We know it’s not always easy to walk into something new. Whether you’ve never gone to church before or you’re a lifelong follower of Jesus, you are welcome here. This is a place where you can come as you are to find new ideas, perspectives, and friends.

What should I wear?

Wear what you like. There’s no spoken or unspoken dress code. There’s no right or wrong. What matters to God and to us is that you are here.

Which service should I attend?

Here are some things to think about as you make that decision:

  • Time: Are you an early riser? You might like the early option at 8:15 am. Do you like to start your Sunday kind of slow, or is it just hard to get the kids out of the house early on the weekend? Then 9:45 am or 11:15 am might be the right fit.
  • Style: Casual and contemporary? Try the 8:15 am or 9:45 am service in West Side South. Classical and liturgical? Try our traditional service at 11:15 am in West Side North.
  • Children: We have childcare available for infants through kindergarten during the worship services, cry rooms if you want to hold onto your little ones during the service, Sunday morning programs for all ages from 9:45-10:45 am, and kids are always welcome in worship.

 

What about the offering plate?

Please let the offering basket go by and be our guest. As members of our church, we give joyfully in worship and gratitude to God to support the ongoing work of the church. We do hope you will fill out the Information Card you receive in the bulletin, drop it in the basket, and let us know how we might serve you.

What else?

We follow Jesus by loving God, loving people, and serving the world. We invite you to learn more about the many ways we do this by staying for lunch to meet our staff (we do this on a quarterly basis), and by browsing this web site. We have information tables in both buildings and people who can answer questions every Sunday in our main building. Please drop by the office and see us whenever it is convenient for you. You can reach us by phone at 509.946.4656 or by email at info@westside1.org.

We hope to see you soon!
