First Time Here?

What to Expect



We completely understand that visiting a church for the first time can be tough. Will the people be friendly? Will I be over/under dressed? What is the music like? Will they have something for my children? While it may be difficult to answer ALL of your questions about West Side Bible, we have compiled a list of questions and answers to help you. If at anytime you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us. We are here to serve you.


What is your typical Sunday morning service like? 

     There are two main components to our Sunday morning service: Worship through song and worship through the teaching and application of the Bible.


What is the music like? 

     We like to think of our music as a blending of contemporary and traditional music styles. This means you will hear both hymns and modern worship songs arranged to engage a God-centered response in the hearts of His people.


What is the preaching like? 

     We believe in an expository style of preaching. That is, we let the Bible speak for itself. This means that we teach systematically, verse-by-verse through the books of the Bible. We also find it valuable to take a topical approach from time-to-time. 


What is there for my children? 

     On Sunday mornings, we offer a Sunday school program for all ages, birth through 6th grade. On Wednesday evenings we offer the AWANA program which meets at Jefferson Middle School in Rocky Ford. We also have Jr. High and Sr. High youth group on Sunday evening.


What is appropriate dress for a worship service at West Side Bible? 

     You can wear a suit or shorts. Whatever you're comfortable in. We are much more concerned about what’s going on inside of a person, than what they are wearing on the outside. If it helps you out, our Elders are usually dressed casual. So just come as you are. We only ask that what is worn is not distracting to others.


What makes West Side Bible distinct? 

     1) Our stand on the foundational doctrines of the historic Christian Church, 2) Our focus on the expository teaching and preaching of God’s Word, 3) Our focus on building a Gospel-driven community among the people at West Side Bible, 4) Our desire to reach the communities of the Arkansas Valley with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ, 5) Our aim is to disciple and equip the saints for their work of service.
