Thank you for visiting our website!

We hope this site provides you with a helpful overview of what West Side Church of the Nazarene is about.  Our congregation is composed of warm and loving people, including many who have encountered the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. 

We have just relocated to an incredible facility God has provided us!  We are still trying to settle-in at our new home at 788 North Sunnyside Road.  There are many "details" still being worked-out, but we are making progress.

If you are looking for a church home, we would love to have you worship with us and share in the amazing adventure God is leading us into at the NEW West Side Church of the Nazarene!

We invite you to join us for Worship on EASTER SUNDAY, April 5th at 10:30 a.m. as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ!   There are Bible Study classes for adults and teens at 9:30 a.m.  There will also be an EASTER EGG HUNT for the children at 9:30 a.m.!   We encourage you to share in our first EASTER at our new location.


On February 1, 2015, we had our first Sunday at our new location:  788 North Sunnyside Road (Highway 36 West at North Sunnyside Road)God has worked miraculously in the sale of our former property and in the acqusition of our new church home.  We praise God for His miraculous provision!  Through the tireless efforts of many in our congregation, we prepared the building for being remodeled into a facility for worship and ministry.  We are grateful to Turner & Sons for doing an excellent job with the remodeling project!   We invite you to come worship with us at our new location beginning February 1! 

Into The Word!

Each Sunday from 9:30-10:15 a.m., we host special gatherings in which we study God's Word, the Bible, finding its daily application for our lives.  We have gatherings for all ages, from children through senior adults.  ALL OF US need to learn the Bible and understand how to live according to God's plan.  We hope you will join us as we get "Into The Word!"


We would be honored to have you join us in worship this Sunday!  You will enjoy great contemporary music, relevant and applicable messages from our pastor, a loving atmosphere, and people who genuinely care about you.  We have a place for you here at the West Side Church of the Nazarene!

Welcome to our new Children's Pastor!
