MISSION STUDY IS COMPLETE!
West Side is pleased to share the results of our Church Mission Study, a big milestone for us in our journey to call new pastoral leadership. As you read the study and reflect on its findings, it is our prayer you will be encouraged by God’s ongoing faithfulness at work in our midst.
The best way to view the Mission Study is on our website www.wspc.org/mission-study/. A few hard copies will also be available in the Welcome Center to check out. Thank you to all who contributed to the Mission Study. It took many hours of time and effort to produce this quality of a study.
