Worship at Westlake UMC
Worship at Westlake UMC is a communal experience of the mystery and grace of God. Worship involves the whole person in praising, confessing, proclaiming, praying and responding to God’s grace for us and our families and greater community. In worship we listen for the Word of God as found in scripture, prayer and sermon. In each worship service as well as throughout the entire flow of the Christian year we seek transformation through the power of the Holy Spirit. As a community of faith we encourage one another to be God’s hands and feet by doing good works in the community and in supporting mission throughout the world. We endeavor to live out our mission statement “Following Christ: Transforming Lives” when we gather and even more when we scatter to be the church out in the world. Both of our dynamic worship services embody artful preaching, passionate congregational singing and meaningful prayer. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month, and on special feast days.
