CURRENT & UPCOMING EVENTS
Over the past year, we’ve experienced some joy and beauty, yet we’ve also endured pain and struggle both individually and collectively. In the midst of this brokenness, we recognize our need for repair and recovery. We invite you to join us for a series of worship services called “Holy Vessels” from February 21 - March 28 as we seek physical, communal, emotional, intellectual, and environmental health. Over these six weeks, we’ll explore the healing stories of Jesus that show us divine solidarity with human suffering, which point us toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken. Join us each Sunday at 9am or 11:15am at westlake-umc.org/livestream.more

It’s traditional to make King Cake for Mardi Gras, but King Cake has yeast and therefore takes hours. Megan’s found a cupcake recipe that’s inspired by King Cake.

Everyone wants happiness. The surface-level variety can be easy to find but hard to keep. Rather than looking for the latest and greatest self-help trend or fad; we look back to something much older and much wiser. There’s something so poignant in the ancient teachings of Jesus that points us to happiness. And these teachings might surprise us. We invite you to join us for this 6-week series at 9:00am or 11:15am from Sunday, January 10 - Sunday, February, 14 as we explore "What Makes You Happy."
