Our church is in the process of making many changes (some big and some small). As an option, we considered united with another church in order to help us make those
changes, However, after much prayer and discussion, it has been decided that
Westwood Baptist Church will not unite with New Hope Loudonville. New Hope Loudonville
will still be planting a church called New Hope Wooster but we will not be a part of starting that new church. In the future Westwood Baptist
Church may change its name, but we will not change denominations. Westwood Baptist Church will remain Southern Baptist. Because, God continues to move our church in new and exciting directions, please pray
about how God might be calling you to help those of us at Westwood
Baptist Church become the church
God wants us to be.
Every Sunday Night from 5-6:30 pm. Prayer
and Planning Meetings. Currently, these meetings have taken the place of our
monthly business meetings. Join us as we pray about, discuss, and implement changes
that will better align the ministries of our church with the vision of our church.
Some of those changes include but are not limited to: Building renovations,
children’s ministries, nursery, youth, senior adults, worship team, changing from Sunday schools to small groups, changing
how decisions are made on behalf of the entire church, hiring of more paid staff, acquiring a building equity loan, etc.
Please note that the focus of next Sunday night’s meeting we
will be discussing Children’s Church, Nursery, purchase of new chairs and projection equipment, hiring of another paid
staff member, and acquiring a building equity loan.
Every Wednesday Night from 8:15-9 pm. Worship Team Practice. If you like to sing, can play an instrument, our would like to help with behind the scenes stuff (sound
board, set-up and tear down, etc.) join us immediately following Bible Study.
