About Westside

On Your First Visit

The congregation at Westside is a loving, multi-ethnic, body of Christian brothers and sisters who seek to reach out to others in Gwinnett County with the love of Jesus Christ.

You will find Bible study classes for all ages with separate classes for men and women, couples, teenagers and children.

Our worship style could best be described as “Blended” but over all the services are Spirit-led and you will feel the freedom to worship God through congregational singing and through special music led by adult choir and soloists.

Don’t forget to stop by our guest reception room before you leave Westside for the day. Our “cookie room”, as it is known by many at the church, is a great place to meet with a staff person and talk or ask questions for a few minutes. Not to mention a great place to get a sweet treat and drink at the end of worship.
