Sunday Morning Worship
What to Expect
On Sunday mornings we gather from 10:30am to around noon for worship with singing, prayers, historical liturgies, preaching, and Communion.
Our music incorporates contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns. We observe the Lord’s Supper at the end of every Sunday service, but participation is voluntary, based on each person’s examination of the faith in his or her own heart. We don’t pass the elements down the rows, so no one notices if you choose not to get up and partake.
To know more about how we conduct our service and why, check out this document we wrote to explain the various elements of our service: Westside Worship 101.
There’s no single standard for what’s appropriate to wear, so use your own judgment. Most people don’t feel obligated to dress too formally, though some choose to, and others just wear whatever’s comfortable to them. Regardless, just remember that your presence is the main thing.
Effective April 2, 2017, we now meet at Boyd Elementary School at 1891 Johnson Rd. NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.
Parking is available at Boyd Elementary School and also on Rockdale Road. Parking Guides will direct you to the best parking space or reroute you to Rockdale Road if the school lot is full. Vans between the two locations run every six minutes or so from the time the Boyd lot is filled to 11am and resume again immediately after the service is completed. In case of rain, a tent is pitched at the Rockdale Road stop. Please do not park on Johnson Road.
By public transit, MARTA bus route #26 (which departs from the North Avenue station) stops at the corner of West Marietta St/Perry Blvd and Johnson Rd, just around the corner from Rockdale St.
Nursery & Childcare
The mission of the Atlanta Westside Church nursery is to provide a safe, caring, and inviting environment for children; to ensure that their church times are joyful; and to provide a foundation for their developing faith. Nursery care is available for infants, toddlers, and children under four years during every Sunday morning worship service. The nursery opens at 10:15 A.M.
Children’s Worship Service
This class is for children aged four years old and higher. Children are released for their service just before the sermon begins and are brought back to observe the time of Communion afterwards. Those who choose to remain for the sermon are always welcome to sit with their parents throughout the adult service.
Sunday School for children is available from 9:15-10:15am during the school year with a break between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
The Westside Youth Group, for all 6th-12th graders, will only meet intermittently over the summer. Please contact the church office to get involved.
