Southern Baptist Convention

Our desire is to proclaim the Gospel and truly help families grow in community with God and others! We are passionate about having a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ and strive to help people become dedicated disciples. From a dynamic AWANA club to our Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS) Program, there is ministry here for your entire family. Worship opportunities include both traditional and contemporary worship services each Sunday and Lifegroups on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Because of our closeness to the Fort Leonard Wood military base, we understand the difficulties of being part of a church for a short time and welcome soldiers and their families to get involved.

Church Ministries


August through May of each year, our children experience the dynamic ministry of the AWANA club. With an emphasis on Scripture memorization and active fellowship, AWANA Club is much anticipated by all the children at Westside. The AWANA club meets on Wednesday evening from 6 - 8 PM.


LifeGroups are small units of people that meet to grow closer to God as they build community with one another.


Our Mothers Of Preschoolers group has grown to include two separate meeting times. Young mothers minister to one another and are encouraged together at regular meeting times. Please contact the church for more information.

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading

Every year the Upward program gives children an opportunity to become a better athlete and a better person at the same time.

Westside Preschool

Our Westside Preschool is a great environment for kids to learn and grow in a Christian atmosphere. It is well respected in the community and both the half day and full day slots fill up quickly with registration in early May.
