Outreach

Jesus hung out with the least, the last, and the lost. We seek to follow him and his example of service to others. We welcome you to this faith community and encourage you to get involved in the many outreach opportunities available! We are called to invite Christ into our hearts, follow his way authentically, and extend his love to all we encounter. We go into the world to engage its brokenness and afflictions, extend a helping hand wherever we can, and invite others to join with us in a life-changing adventure.

Westlake UMC is planning to send a college age team to Zimbabwe for two weeks at the end of May into June to serve those in need with the nonprofit It Starts With Soccer. This is an amazing opportunity where we will help build a farm area for young students to manage and use the money from it to buy lunch at school. Those on the trip will experience a new culture as they also play soccer with the community, go sightseeing, and spend time together even cooking with local foods.
